Subject: if perl is too low in META.yml/json, this information is not sent to CPAN::Reporter
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 758b
META.yml of Lexical::Import has configure_requires: perl: 5.011002 So, on perl 5.10.0 Show quoted text
cpan> test Lexical::Import
Running test for module 'Lexical::Import' Running make for Z/ZE/ZEFRAM/Lexical-Import-0.002.tar.gz ... ZEFRAM/Lexical-Import-0.002.tar.gz requires perl '5.011002'; you have only 5.010 001; giving up ZEFRAM/Lexical-Import-0.002.tar.gz [prereq] -- NOT OK Could not make: requires perl '5.011002' Running make test Can't test without successful make Failed during this command: ZEFRAM/Lexical-Import-0.002.tar.gz : make NO requires perl '5.011002' Should sub CPAN::Distribution::satisfy_configure_requires just send a fake output to CPAN::Reporter::grade_PL? Or it is incorrect place? -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net

The CPAN Testers policy is that when prerequisites are not satisfied, no report should be sent so I don't have a problem with it doing nothing. Faking up a "No support for OS" output message for grade_PL would also seem fine.
