This prereq caused my installation to fail. You could make it optional like the other author release tests.

Why are you running tests with AUTHOR_TESTING or RELEASE_TESTING set to true? Unless you're running tests from a git repo via "dzil test --release" there's never a good reason to do this. There's a reason these are called "release tests" ;)

Things required by the release tests should probably be declared as 'develop' prereqs -- then anyone who insists on running with AUTHOR_TESTING turned on can satisfy those prereqs and continue on their merry way.

Isn't this what "dzil authordeps" is for? It seems silly to declare what dzil can calculate. -dave /*============================================================ http://VegGuide.org http://blog.urth.org Your guide to all that's veg House Absolute(ly Pointless) ============================================================*/
