I haven't seen these reports in a while. Is there any guess what the problem might have been? If we can figure it out, we can confirm that it's no longer an issue in the new code.

11:39 <@haarg> ether: 11:42 <@haarg> ether: that line of code is buggy and will warn under -w 11:42 <@ether> haarg: can you clarify? how is -w coming into play? 11:43 <@haarg> make test 11:43 <@ether> in the harness itself? I don't see it in the arg string 11:43 <@haarg> try again in 2012 11:44 <@haarg> make test used to apply -w to all test scripts 11:45 <@[Sno]> haarg: maybe that's at now 11:46 <@haarg> basically, it's an old problem in an old dev release, combined with an old EUMM, and an older test setup ether was using. 11:46 <@[Sno]> I'm just walking over tickets and see where I have questions to fix open issues (more important than wish-list items) 11:46 <@ether> s/ether/the smoker/ 11:47 <@haarg> i mean that you were using Test::Warnings without an env check 11:47 <@haarg> iirc 11:47 <@haarg> doesn't really matter though. tracked down the problem, and it isn't a problem. 11:48 <@ether> Test::Warnings turned the warnings fatal, but we would have seen those warnings anyway in the test output because of -w and the lack of "no warnings 'void'" 11:48 <@ether> I no longer enable Test::Warnings for smokers, at least -- learned that lesson :) 11:48 <@ether> nor use warnings FATAL => 'all' 11:50 <@haarg> ether: it would have shown up, but only if you had installed the dev release of List::MoreUtils 11:50 <@haarg> unlikely to be widely noticed So I think we can mark this resolved.
Thanks for the summary, ether. I close it as resolved for now.
