Subject: Pod testing prevents installation by end users
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 716b
This test fails: t/90-author-pod-validation.t (Wstat: 256 Tests: 27 Failed: 1) # blib/lib/Mail/SPF/Util.pm (157): L<> starts or ends with whitespace # blib/lib/Mail/SPF/Util.pm (157): L<> starts or ends with whitespace The problem with Pod should be fixed, but more importantly, this test should not be run by end users trying to install the code. It's almost certainly only useful for the about-to-release author to prevent a silly mistake. After the distribution is released, the test should be ignored by users. The convention for this is usually to skip_all unless $ENV{RELEASE_TESTING}. Anyway, right now Mail-SPF can't be installed on a fresh perl install without human involvement. -- rjbs

Attached patch fixes offending pod. All we need now is some human involvement to apply it!

Alternatively, CPAN.pm users may use the following distropref file to workaround the problem: https://github.com/eserte/srezic-cpan-distroprefs/blob/master/Mail-SPF.yml
