Subject: multi_content_type.t unfortunately may be skipped silently
Download (untitled) / with headers

One of my smokers recently reported a fail on the multi_content_type.t test. I'm still investigating what might be the cause and when I have some evidence I'll open another ticket. For now I want to suggest that the test should not pass so silently when the catalyst server on 7357 does not work. At least a diag should be issued, maybe even a fail would be appropriate. Or a diag which collects hints about possible reasons. This is the current code: TRY_CONNECT: { eval { $m->get('/') }; if ($@ || $m->content =~ /Can't connect to \w+:$PORT/) { $skip = $@ || $m->content; } } The variable $skip now is only passed to the skip function which is normally only displayed when the user asks for verbosity. But cpantesters do not and should not ask vor extra verbosity, the default verbosity must be good enough to recognize that the server could not be started and why. Makes sense?

I've added a diag of the exception here in the latest release, which should help (I think?). Thanks for the bug report! Cheers t0m

Actually, this is totally broken, and needs fixing. I've fixed the server starting, and committed stuff to show the actual test is broken, however I haven't got a fix of any sort yet.
