CPAN Testers 2.0: Interim milestone

This is just a quick note to say that I've successfully configured a test CT2.0 server hosted entirely on Amazon Web Services. I've also successfully sent test reports to it from my regular CPAN::Reporter client using Test::Reporter::Transport::Metabase. It's the first end-to-end test of the target architecture for CT2.0.

FreeBSD hates Capture::Tiny

At least, FreeBSD 7.1 does. Could anyone with access to perl on FreeBSD 7.1 please test Capture::Tiny? It now passes test on most platforms, but FreeBSD 7.1 still sometimes fails. I suspect the FAIL reports I'm seeing are something specific to either CPANPLUS or BinGOs' smokers, but I need more data points (PASS or FAIL) […]
