18:13 theory Anyone know what happened to SUPER? http://api.metacpan.org/v0/module/SUPER returns 404.
18:23 ether removed because it conflicted with core?
18:23 ether SUPER,CHROMATIC,f
18:23 ether SUPER,P5P,m
18:24 ether backpan has it at http://backpan.perl.org/authors/id/C/CH/CHROMATIC/
18:28 theory Conflicts with core? It’s dual-life.
18:28 theory http://search.cpan.org/dist/SUPER/
18:28 theory I expect that API to return data whether a module is in core or not.
18:30 leont $foo->SUPER::method
18:31 theory um
18:32 theory I don’t know what that means. There are modules that declare a depency on the SUPER module, such as Test::MockModule. They will now fail to install.
18:36 Ptolemarch joined #metacpan
18:40 mst I'm confused as to why there was such a module that you needed to declare deps on
18:41 mst oh, huh, it's like a next::can
18:41 mst my suspicion would be that, actually, it's totally still on cpan
18:41 mst but then there's something in latest core overshadowing it?
18:41 mst CoreList doesn't think it's in core at all
18:42 mst but there's no SUPER package indexed at all
18:42 mst theory: basically, it's no longer in the PAUSE index
18:43 mst hrm
18:43 mst OTOH maybe I can fix that
18:43 theory I don’t depend on it, but modules I use do.
18:43 mst right, mostly chromatic's modules
18:43 * mst schedules the last SUPER dist for reindexing
18:43 theory Not exclusively, though.
18:44 theory e.g., http://search.cpan.org/dist/Test-MockModule/
18:44 mst yeah, which was maintained by chromatic for ages
18:44 theory mst: you’re thinking of Test::MockObject.
18:45 mst ah, MockModule went straight to franks
18:45 mst right, I see, chromatic took over SUPER from lathos
18:45 mst MockModule was lathoscode
18:45 mst that's the common thread of infection
18:45 * theory shakes his fist at lathos
18:45 theory "All dependency chains lead to lathos.”
18:46 mst right, so now we need to wait for PAUSE to notice the reindex, then it'll cascade down through the ecosystem
18:47 theory Thanks.
18:48 mst if chromatic comes and yells at me because it got re-indexed, I'm totally blaming you
18:50 theory Please do.
18:50 * theory & # lunch
19:00 mst theory: cpanm --look SUPER now finds it again
19:01 * mst pokes the index with a stick
19:01 mst yep, indexed only package SUPER from that dist
19:02 mst theory: ok, PAUSE is fixed at this point
19:23 ether contributors look wonky for https://metacpan.org/release/Daemon-Control  -- click "show them" in the right sidebar and you get "=over 4".  There is nothing relevant in META.*
19:25 ether SUPER is a dumb name for a package because it can be confused with core's SUPER
19:25 ether PAUSE shouldn't index anything that's a recognizable keyword in perl :)
19:26 ether except the horses are long since gone from that barn
19:26 ether e.g. if.pm
19:27 haarg ether: https://metacpan.org/source/SYMKAT/Daemon-Control-0.001007/META.yml#L3-4
19:27 ether oh, ugh!
19:27 * ether will send a PR to fix
19:28 ether looks like it's from MI 'all_from'
19:28 haarg contributors on metacpan is uniq(authors+contributors)-uploader

20:30 mst ether: yes, well, simon cozens wrote it many many moons ago when things where simpler albeit uphill both ways
