17:00 mst so, interesting problem
17:00 mst we merged Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode::Encoding into Catalyst core
17:00 mst so now the metacpan page for the former
17:01 mst only shows previous versions of Catalyst-Runtime
17:01 mst rather than the previous dists containing that module

17:36 ether looks like it loses history regarding what used to be indexed previously
17:36 ether and assumes that if $module is indexed to $dist now, it always was
17:37 ether which is a fair simplification; just wrong in this case :)
17:38 ilmari wrong any time a module moves from one dist to another
17:38 ilmari which can't be _that_ rare
17:40 neilb joined #metacpan
17:41 trs I _think_ the data should still be there to pull out all the releases that a module was once authorized under.
17:42 trs so, not losing data just simplifying on presentation.

18:40 haarg the old releases are definitely still there
18:40 haarg just not linked anywhere
18:44 ilmari where's the api explorer gone?
18:45 alh https://explorer.metacpan.org/ ?
18:45 haarg it's linked in the tools section on the left sidebar
18:45 ilmari but not on the front page
18:51 Ptolemarch joined #metacpan
18:58 haarg the icon on the testers link seems to have gone missing
19:00 ilmari http://explorer.metacpan.org/#/55e4651ac0f49d5bc153 # all releases that contained a given module
19:00 andreeap joined #metacpan
19:03 ranguard haarg: https://github.com/CPAN-API/metacpan-web/pull/1458/files I'm guessing
19:03 haarg yeah
19:03 haarg i'm working on it
19:03 ilmari http://explorer.metacpan.org/#/a6912087e7befb9a24ab # all releases in which a module was indexed
19:03 haarg reinstalling prereqs since i switched perls
19:04 ranguard haarg: if you used the VM wouldn't be an issue ;)
19:04 haarg i could also just switch back to the perl that has the prereqs installed
19:04 ranguard haarg++ # reinstalling prereqs :)

21:22 ether why is that this dist doesn't show CONTRIBUTING.mkdn in the file list - https://metacpan.org/release/Dist-Zilla-PluginBundle-DAGOLDEN
21:22 ether but this does show CONTRIBUTING?  https://metacpan.org/release/Dist-Zilla-PluginBundle-Author-ETHER
21:22 ether are .mkdn files explicitly excluded from display on the main release page?
21:25 ether it looks like .md files are shown but .mkdn are not -- unless there's a more complicated rule in play?
21:25 Anon021 joined #metacpan
21:25 oalders it's probably not more complicated than that :)
21:26 bvierra_ joined #metacpan
21:29 bvierra Hey all, I created an extension that redirects search.cpan.org to search.mcpan.org
21:30 bvierra for some of the searches it redirects to a 404
21:30 bvierra for example
21:30 bvierra http://search.cpan.org/dist/HTML-FormHandler-0.40017/lib/HTML/FormHandler/Field.pm
21:30 bvierra redirects to:
21:30 bvierra https://metacpan.org/pod/distribution/HTML-FormHandler-0.40017/lib/HTML/FormHandler/Field.pm

22:04 oalders bvierra++
22:04 oalders thanks for setting that up
22:04 bvierra np
22:05 bvierra the issue is that a majority of searches in google return 404 on metacpan after redirect
22:05 oalders yeah, that's no good
22:05 bvierra I tested it for a few months prior to releasing it
22:05 bvierra and it wasnt doing that
22:05 oalders how are you doing the rewrites?
22:05 bvierra so I have a feeling someone broke something
22:06 bvierra its a stright hostname rewrite
22:06 oalders s/cpan.org/mcpan.org/ ?
22:06 bvierra search.cpan.org -> search.mcpan.org
22:07 bvierra https://github.com/bvierra/chrome-metacpanredirect
22:09 bvierra it apears to happen when the result has a specific module version in it
22:10 oalders bvierra: https://gist.github.com/oalders/6b8f6402be9bd249a381
22:10 oalders those are the rules
22:11 oalders i don't know if we ever had 100% coverage, but if you could find the error(s), that would be great
22:12 bvierra ok yea I see it
22:12 bvierra if there is a version # (ie a specific release)
22:12 bvierra https://metacpan.org/pod/distribution/HTML-FormHandler-0.40017/lib/HTML/FormHandler/Field.pm
22:12 bvierra should be
22:12 bvierra https://metacpan.org/pod/release/GSHANK/HTML-FormHandler-0.40017/lib/HTML/FormHandler.pm
22:13 bvierra err
22:13 bvierra https://metacpan.org/pod/release/GSHANK/HTML-FormHandler-0.40017/lib/HTML/FormHandler/Field.pm
22:14 bvierra the issue is the addition of the author handle
22:21 oalders ranguard: where do we fix this?
22:51 haarg i don't think we have a url form for the dist with a version but no author
23:18 oalders we could add an endpoint to figure out the redirection
