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.

CPAN Testers 2.0 end-January update

The bad news is that we're still about two weeks behind schedule. The good news is that we're not falling further behind and in some areas, we're already ahead. As I wrote in the last update, a number of my early-January tasks for revising the Metabase libraries didn't get done and were blocking progress on […]
