22:47 garu hey guys, when I see an unauthorized dist, how can I get details on it?
22:48 garu I'm trying to help this dude push some code to cpan, but even though there is no released named like his, it is still coming up as unauthorized
22:49 garu I'm assuming someone somewhere either registered the namespace or pushed a dist and deleted it afterwards
22:49 garu but I don't know who nor how to fix it
22:52 garu I can't even find it on metcpan unless I give it the full link
22:52 haarg metacpan doesn't have an interface for that information (although it uses it when indexing)
22:52 garu (dist in case is Dancer::Plugin::Auth::Facebook)
22:52 haarg https://pause.perl.org/pause/authenquery?pause99_peek_perms_by=me&pause99_peek_perms_query=Dancer::Plugin::Auth::Facebook&pause99_peek_perms_sub=1
22:53 garu haarg: is there a way I can.. oh! you're fast :D
22:53 garu thank you!
22:54 haarg does he have two pause accounts?
22:55 ether Dancer::Plugin::Auth::Facebook,LINUZ,f
22:56 garu yeah, but if you check it out, it's ZOMGUNAUTHORIZED
22:56 garu http://search.cpan.org/~prajith/Dancer-Plugin-Auth-Facebook/
22:56 dipsy [ Prajith / Dancer-Plugin-Auth-Facebook - search.cpan.org ]
22:57 garu maybe he screwed up on the makefile?
22:57 haarg https://metacpan.org/author/PRAJITH vs https://metacpan.org/author/LINUZ
22:57 dipsy [ Prajith (PRAJITH) - metacpan.org ] [ Prajith P (LINUZ) - metacpan.org ]
22:58 garu oh
22:58 garu he's prajith, not linuz
22:58 garu but it's the same guy
22:58 garu I think
22:58 garu (same website)
22:59 haarg so he either needs to release the namespace using the other account
22:59 garu ok, I'll let him know and see if we can amend this, thanks!
22:59 haarg or if he doesn't have access to that account anymore, contact a pause admin
22:59 garu who's a pause admin nowadays?
23:00 haarg generally you'd send an email to modules@perl.org
23:00 garu sounds good. thanks guys!
23:03 haarg there are some other issues with that release, although not things that would affect indexing
23:04 haarg the tarball doesn't have a version number in it
23:04 haarg and it doesn't have any META files
23:05 haarg easy solution for those is to package it using `make dist` instead of however it was done
23:06 garu yup. I'll teach him that for the new release
23:07 garu thanks again!
23:08 ether garu: what did the email from PAUSE say? it would explain why it's unauthorized.
23:09 ether search.cpan.org could be on crack :)
23:13 garu I don't know, he just asked for help via my github pull request :)
23:13 garu so I'm writing a short tutorial the best way I can :)
23:44 garu ether https://github.com/Prajithp/Dancer-Plugin-Auth-Facebook/pull/1
23:44 dipsy [ tests and a couple of updates by garu · Pull Request #1 · Prajithp/Dancer-Plugin-Auth-Facebook · GitHub ]
