00:08 ronsavage JK: Any ideas about this: http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/8c4f0c74-b5bb-11e5-895c-94abaef69d38

00:46 Idiosyncrat ronsavage: No, none
00:48 Idiosyncrat The file looks fine; it ends with a "1;" as a failsafe; and it's trouble-free in a lot of other environments including similar ones.
00:48 Idiosyncrat Note that Chris Williams test reports have been mentioned before -- Jean-Damien and I discussed them a while ago.
00:49 Idiosyncrat Chris is responsible for a high % of cpantester's coverage, which he does by agressively creating many different setups, ...
00:50 Idiosyncrat apparently in an automated way, so that a higher % of false negatives is a by-product.
00:50 Idiosyncrat Jean-Damien IIRC correctly more or less ignores these test reports.
00:50 Idiosyncrat I, on the other hand, regard them as important, but far from infallible.

02:00 ronsavage Thanx. I assumed the report was spurious because it does not match any other report re this module.
02:03 ronsavage Also, I'm strongly inclined to re-number the Qs in the FAQ so that the first group (1 .. 100?) are reserved for error messages. That'd mean the text of the Q would literally be (part of) the error message. I'm sure that'd make that part easier to scan.
02:09 Idiosyncrat ronsavage: re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2016-01-10#i_11861679 -- good idea

21:02 ronsavage JDD: Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2016-01-10#i_11863808. Some shells under RH I think certainly had problems with long PATHs. Perhaps that's what you are thinking of?
