14:12 johanl well this is weird, Attribute::Exporter is present on cpan.org, but missing on metacpan.org
14:12 johanl http://search.cpan.org/~ajwans/
14:12 johanl vs
14:12 leont That happens sometimes when dists have issues
14:12 johanl https://metacpan.org/author/AJWANS
14:13 leont https://metacpan.org/about/missing_modules
14:14 mst johanl: you mean cpansearch.org
14:14 mst johanl: please don't pretend that the closed source cpansearch codebase is 'cpan.org'
14:14 johanl yes
14:14 johanl sure
14:14 leont I can't see any obvious reason why it wouldn't be indexed
14:14 mst occasionally I wish we had meta.cpan.org pointed at us
14:15 mst just so I could say "LOOK, BOTH CPAN.ORG, PLEASE STOP BEING VAGUE"
14:15 mst anyway
14:15 mst it's not on cpanmetadb either
14:15 mst $VERSION looks ok in the main module
14:16 mst nothing stupid in META
14:16 mst well, ok, abstract: 'unknown'
14:16 mst but that shouldn't matter
14:16 mst NAME is right in Makefile.PL
14:21 mst released on ... 2014-07-
14:21 mst apparently
14:21 mst (yes, that's what's in the Changes file)
14:22 johanl ok, it's failing to install in general, even for a random mirror like e.g. http://cpan.etla.org
14:22 mst that would suggest PAUSE hasn't indexed it
14:22 johanl so I don't know how I ever intalled it in the first place
14:23 mst johanl: so, other than it being horrible scary code that I wouldn't want within twenty miles of production, I can't see anything specifically wrong with it
14:23 mst maybe the author's intentionally de-indexed it
14:23 johanl might just replace it with some other exporter module
14:24 leont Yeah, I was also thinking about de-indexing
14:24 johanl I asked on github, but thought I'd also check if metacpan might be the odd one out
14:24 johanl thanks for all your help!
14:28 mst johanl: it's worth checking the PAUSE index as well as metacpan
14:28 mst since we try and keep the behaviours identical
14:28 mst whereas cpansearch does random things and the author won't tell us what or why
14:34 johanl not sure exactly how to search the PAUSE index, but
14:34 johanl https://pause.perl.org/pause/authenquery?pause99_peek_perms_by=me&pause99_peek_perms_query=Attribute::Exporter&pause99_peek_perms_sub=1
14:35 johanl says the module name is known
14:35 johanl that's the only way to search / list things in PAUSE I could find
14:42 Ptolemarch joined #metacpan
14:49 mst johanl: err, your 02packages.details.txt.gz file is the result of it
14:49 mst johanl: do a 'reload index' at the cpan prompt to update it
14:49 mst then apply zgrep
14:51 mst http://paste.scsys.co.uk/474662
14:51 mst johanl: ^^ see, not actually indexed on cpan
14:52 BinGOs curl http://www.cpan.org/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz | gzip -dc | grep 'Attribute::Exporter'
14:52 johanl ok, thanks
15:03 dolmen johanl, this dist also has missing dependency, but this should not block indexing # https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=104002
15:14 dolmen johanl, you can still manually install this dist with "cpan AJWANS/Attribute-Exporter-0.02.tar.gz"
15:17 dolmen johanl, the test suite output is quite scary... http://paste.scsys.co.uk/474663
15:31 johanl sorry was AFK
15:32 johanl anyway, I've now replaced it with Exporter::Tiny
15:55 mst johanl: good choice

18:59 ether could B-Utils please be re-indexed? Andreas has just fixed a permissions problem for the 0.26 release
19:05 oalders ether: done
19:05 ether thank you!
19:08 oalders :)
19:10 melo joined #metacpan
19:12 mst would it be worth adding a 'reindex X' button that authors could click for their own dists
19:12 mst and then maybe a couple of us who regularly make this sort of request could also be given access to
19:13 ether I bet it's on the wishlist :)
19:13 mst (much like on pause my admin bits let me reindex things)
19:23 oalders mst: would probably be worth doing, but we don't have any kind of admin control panel
19:23 mst oalders: BAH
19:24 oalders mst: you have SSH access. that's kind of the same thing. :)
