15:49 nick Hi all, got my first challenge today. The module has a large number of failures re cpan testers ... including all versions of perl on Mac OSX. Yet it installed including passing all tests on my MacBook ... what to do about this?
15:51 thrig what are the failures?
15:53 nick Hm, all red , was assuming it meant failure to install .
15:55 nick There's one test that fails across platforms and perls ... but didn't on my machine!
15:55 nick But I see that 5.16.0 on darwin is among the configs not tested .
15:56 thrig and that failure is .... ?
15:58 nick Subroutine SASLAuth redefined at /Library/Perl/5.16/XML/Stream.pm line 2184.
15:58 nick Unhandled type: GLOB at /Library/Perl/5.16/Devel/Cycle.pm line 107.
15:58 nick That's from 5.16.2 on MacOSX
15:59 nick Same failure from other perls on other platforms.
16:00 nick Same failure on 5.16.0 (which is what I have) on other platforms. My platform not tested.
16:01 thrig that's a warning, not an error, in the Devel::Cycle code

16:12 nick Where to start? Pick a cell on the matrix, fix, and move out? Even with perlbrew I'll only be able to test on one OS and version ... is that helpful?
16:23 ether the failure might not be due to architecture, but a particular combination of prerequisites
16:24 ether analysis.cpantesters.org attempts to figure out the commonalities between all failures
16:24 nick joined #pr-challenge
16:24 ether (repeat) the failure might not be due to architecture, but a particular combination of prerequisites
16:25 ether (repeat) analysis.cpantesters.org attempts to figure out the commonalities between all failures
16:35 nick checking ...
16:44 neilb joined #pr-challenge
16:54 nick @ether nothing on analysis.cpantesters.org
16:55 nick This is a Net:: module and thus skips a lot of tests if it can't connect. Maybe that masks errors that are found on systems that do all the tests?
17:02 neilb_ joined #pr-challenge
17:02 ether what's the idst?
17:02 ether er dist?
17:04 nick Net::XMPP
17:05 nick Hmph, after I cloned it and ran `perl Makefile.PL` I now get the same errors as those reported with `make test`.
17:05 nick Wonder why it installed without error from CPAN ?
17:06 thrig what errors? what dist?
17:06 nick @thrig same errors I told you above.
17:07 nick in Net::XMPP
17:07 nick s/same/similar/
17:07 nick Can't call method "can_read" on an undefined value at /Users/nick/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.16.0/lib/site_perl/5.16.0/XML/Stream.pm line 1436.
17:08 nick in the test gtalk.t
17:08 nick I can look at the test, and the errors!
17:08 nick I am seeking advice on where to begin when faced with a giant red blob all over the CPAN test matrix.
17:10 thrig with the specific errors, e.g. go into XML/Stream.pm line 1436, trace where the undefined value came from, etc
17:11 nick Yes, am doing so already. But there are many times more errors reported that I can't reproduce...
17:15 nick ah. "# monkey-patch XML::Stream to support the google-added JID"
17:16 nick quit
17:16 nick exit
17:16 nick b ye
17:16 nick out
