22:52 oalders having both ElasticSearch.pm and Elasticsearch.pm in CPAN is really confusing.
22:55 trs and broken on case-insensitive file-systems
22:56 trs I believe rjbs and dagolden were hacking on this pause issue at one point.
22:57 trs ... wow. I'm surprised that the name change was intentional and marks an api change.
22:57 trs and by the same author.
22:57 oalders it's a really unfortunate choice
22:59 trs yeah.
22:59 rwstauner the ES team made a decision to release a bunch of new "official" clients
22:59 rwstauner for various runtimes
23:00 trs the lowercase s is how you know it's official.
23:00 rwstauner but yes, it is unfortunate
23:00 * rwstauner &
23:00 oalders https://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-perl/issues/5
23:00 dipsy [ Very unfortunate choice of module name · Issue #5 · elasticsearch/elasticsearch-perl · GitHub ]
23:06 trs sigh.
23:09 * tobyink released LV.pm mostly because of lvalue.pm versus Lvalue.pm on CPAN.
23:21 ether I think I got folks to agree that PAUSE should at least warn if a module is indexed under a new dist than where it was previously
23:22 ether silently going "the author must always be right, and know what he's doing" can lead to failures such as this
23:23 ether the other interesting thing from that ticket is that people are trusting that s.c.o's view of the index is correct
23:23 ether which we all here know is very very far from the truth :)
23:45 haarg it would have been possible to make the name change seamless too
23:46 ether yes, very unfortunate :)
23:46 ether it could have all been avoided with a bit of foresight
23:47 ether I filed the ticket very soon after the new name came out, so I was really hoping that he'd pull the new Elasticsearch and release it under a new nonconflicting name
23:49 haarg even naming it Elasticsearch would have been workable, if a bit more effort
