02:59 Zoffix oh god. I remembered that I forgot my challenge for the month earlier today and forgot again!!
03:01 Zoffix Ah, I was relying on a response to this: https://github.com/makamaka/Text-CSV-Encoded/issues/5
03:02 Zoffix Makes me pessimistic about submitting any valuable PRs that require work

05:24 ether Zoffix: Test::* are in runtime prereqs; I'd move that to test
05:24 ether and remove the html encodings from the author string
05:25 ether also that metadata (the META_MERGE stuff in Makefile.PL) could be upgraded to meta-v2
05:25 ether and I'd dump the 'use lib' line in Makefile.PL too
05:25 ether <-- always sees the tooling first :)

14:56 choroba OK, so I'm looking into Test::Aggregate again
14:57 choroba there is a one line patch from Schwern at https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=64604
14:57 choroba it decreases the number of failed tests for nested.t from 9 to 6
14:58 choroba and removes "Bad plan" from fork_and_exit.t
14:59 choroba and from exception.t
14:59 choroba there are still many failures all over the tests, though
15:06 absolut_todd joined #pr-challenge
15:27 choroba for example, I'm getting the 'Label not found for "last TS_SUBTEST_WRAPPER"' which comes from skip_all in Test::Builder
15:28 choroba the code is commented as # HACK!
15:28 choroba and few lines before, there's # Work around old perl bug
15:28 choroba what bug?
15:28 choroba would it work in 5.20?
16:22 neilb joined #pr-challenge
16:28 neilb_ joined #pr-challenge
17:01 choroba Oh, I see one more thing I can probably improve!
17:02 choroba It seems that "No tests run!" was a diagnostics under the old test builder, but it's now something else
17:02 choroba anyone familiar with the new Test framework could confirm?
17:09 choroba hm, probably not, I can see the message still comes from a ->diag call
17:12 choroba oh, but it can probably come from a different class than Test::Builder, so changing its diag method doesn't intercept the call
17:17 choroba Yes, I see it now. It's coming form Test::Stream::Context
17:24 choroba https://github.com/choroba/test-aggregate/commit/7bd661fab4596d2e9d83dd5ec29be62478bde160
17:25 choroba does it make any sense?
17:25 choroba it fixes the tests, and runs under the old builder, too
17:42 ether choroba: you might find more people who can answer general testing questions on #perl-qa
17:43 ether e.g. everyone who has worked recently on Test::More and its infrastructure are there :)
17:43 choroba thanks, I'll try
