00:38 willthechill oliver: sorry I can't help, we probably need jberger or plicease
01:11 plicease oliver: there are some disadvantages to alien_stage_install => 0, but it isn't necesarily a bad thing
01:14 plicease oliver: if you have some time to open an issue here https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/issues I may have some time to take a look at it.
01:15 plicease with the error that you are seeing I mean.
01:16 plicease Alien-Build uses DESTDIR instead which I think works better.
01:20 plicease genio: can you point the perlmonks node to this: https://metacpan.org/pod/Alien::Base#ALIEN_${MODULENAME}_REPO_${PROTOCOL}_${KEY}
01:21 plicease (or anyone else on perlmonks)
01:21 plicease I think that might help.
01:27 plicease (Alien-Build still being somewhat experimental)
01:28 plicease The main thing keeping it from being non-experimental is writing some documentaton and some blogity blogs about it.
01:28 plicease Thing on my todo list.
03:50 willthechill plicease++
11:01 salva joined #native
11:02 salva joined #native
14:15 willthechill plicease & jberger: FYI, Alien::base v0.036 now includes Test2::Suite, which has some very-long-running tests, which cause Travis-CI to hit the upper limit of 50 mins and error
14:19 jberger Seems hard to believe
14:20 jberger Test2 doesn't have a markedly different speed
14:21 willthechill actually apparently it is an actual hang in test 7
14:21 willthechill which apparently is a major problem
14:21 willthechill ribasushi is helping so far
14:21 jberger That's a more believable duration
14:21 jberger Errr situation
14:22 jberger Thanks swipe type
14:23 plicease not sure what you accomplish by running the tests for your deps in CI except a lot fo pain.
14:25 willthechill plicease: finding bugs like this so that my downstream users don't complain to me about stuff
14:25 willthechill pretty important
14:26 plicease if you think so.  i have very little simpathy when it breaks your CI
14:28 willthechill well you are not the author of Test2::Suite so this is not your fault, but it DOES affect your software, so here I am as one of your downstream users reporting a problem
14:28 willthechill ignoring bugs in core parts of CPAN is not good for anyone
14:30 plicease Not sure that I was advocating ignoring bug.
14:32 willthechill well either way, I will be contacted by my own downstream users, so being proactive is my only logical choice
