Subject: It's hard to understand how to use magpie
I have tried to use magpie several times and failed each time. I'm on Mageia Linux Cauldron (x86-64). What I'm trying now (and fail to do) is prepare a package for a new CPAN distribution, and submit it to the Mageia Cauldron package collection. But I cannot figure out how to do that based on magpie help: "magpie checkout Devel::TraceVars" gives me: shlomif[rpms]:$mageia$ magpie checkout Devel::TraceVars [15707] [magpie] checking out Devel::TraceVars in Devel::TraceVars [magpie] command [mgarepo co Devel::TraceVars] exited with value 1 at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.16.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/Moose/Meta/Method/ line 110. "magpie update" gives me: shlomif[rpms]:$mageia$ magpie update Devel::TraceVars [magpie] cannot find a SPECS directory, aborting at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.16.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/Moose/Meta/Method/ line 110. I believe Magpie should be better documented, so it should be easier to figure out. Please provide various use cases and how to achieve them.
