Hi Mark, thanks for the report! The issue here is that, even though Metabase is *the* most used transport system (and the only one currently accepted by the CPAN Testers servers), there are cases where you go with different transports, such as files or sockets, in order to transfer them to a temporary location and push them asynchronously to the CPAN Testers server (via Metabase) later on, and likely through another script. So yes, it's a pretty safe bet that the vast majority of 'cpanm-reporter' users will need to have the Metabase transport installed. But no, it's not really a dependency for cpanm-reporter itself. That said, I added 'Test::Reporter::Transport::Metabase' to the "recommends" section of the Makefile.PL. Hopefully that will work out for both use cases (though I know Miyagawa is still adjusting the defaults on recommended dists in cpanm). Let's see how it goes. If it's still not enough, I'll force Test::Reporter::Transport::Metabase as a hard dep, as it is better to make things easier for the common use case than it is for people that are working extra magic :) Thanks again for the report!
