Moritz Lenz: Automating Deployments: Stage 2: Uploading

Once you have the pipeline for building a package, it's time to distribute the freshly built package to the machines where it's going to be installed on.

I've previously explained the nuts and bolts of getting a Debian package into a repository manage [...]

Joel Berger (jberger): My Perl QA Hackathon 2016
While I have hung out on the fringes of the p5p and toolchain communities for a few years now, my largest “qualifying” contribution has been Alien::Base, which has largely been handed off to Graham Ollis (plicease). Therefore I was a...
Jonathan Worthington (jnthn): Refactoring and torture

Joel Berger (jberger): Reflections on Test2
In a future post I will recount the details of my delightful experience at the 2016 Perl QA Hackathon. Since this is my first post since that time I do want to tip my hat to the great sponsors of...
Andreas Koenig (andk): QA Hackathion in Rugby, Warwickshire, 2016
This year I discussed less and got more focussed on one thing, namely PAUSE, thanks to the kisses of the muse we got flooded with, that is Kenichi, Neil, Matt, Peter and me. Thanks to that, PAUSE is, I daresay,...
David Golden: Stand up and be counted: Annual MongoDB Developer Survey
If you use Perl and MongoDB, I need your help. Every year, we put out a survey to developers to find out what languages they use, what features they need, what problems they have, and so on. We have very few Perl responses. ☹️ Be an ally! Take the Mo [...]

Thank you to all the people who sponsored the Perl QAH hackathon and all those that provided their time. It was a very productive environment for a lot of projects. I worked on 2 primary things relating to PAUSE permissions. PAUSE (indexing) itself a [...]

We made some very good progress on MetaCPAN at this year's QA Hackathon in Rugby. The whole post can be found here....
Ricardo SIGNES (rjbs): I went to the Perl QA Hackathon in Rugby!

I've long said that the Perl QA Hackathon is my favorite professional event of the year. It's better than any conference, where there are some good talks and some bad talks, and some nice socializing. At the Perl QA Hackathon, stuff gets done. I usua [...]

Reini Urban (rurban): Overview of current maintainer fails
schmorp recently complained about a maintainer fail in Math::BigFloat, and since this is not an isolated incident of the last years, I try to give a summary of all the maintainer fails of important modules lately, as I happen to...
Leo Lapworth (ranguard): Perl QAH and MetaCPAN
This year was my first Perl Quality Assurance Hackathon, and even then I could only make 2 of the 4 days. I now wish I'd been to everyone ever, and for the full time! I've been working on the MetaCPAN...
Reini Urban (rurban): Storable security problems and overlarge data
Some people might be aware that we (not p5p) fixed Storable already for the most egregious security problems with Storable, with public CVE, explanation and metasploit module, but those bugs are still in Storable as on CPAN and in the...
Moritz Lenz: Automating Deployments: Building in the Pipeline

The first step of an automated deployment system is always the build. (For a software that doesn't need a build to be tested, the test might come first, but stay with me nonetheless).

Flavio Poletti (polettix): Commented on The removal of the lexical topic feature in 5.24 in Reini Urban

P5P outsider here.

I read through the whole thread "Salvaging lexical $_ from deprecation" and I think that the intent from RGS was correct: let's just talk more about this issue before ditching something that might be useful indeed. RGS saw value in [...]

Reini Urban (rurban): The removal of the lexical topic feature in 5.24
Now that p5p removed the broken lexical topic feature in 5.24 it's time to look back how that happened and why it should not have happened, and how cperl fixed that problem. In 2013 Rafael Garcia-Suarez posted to p5p a...
