Take a look at this output:

http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/285112

It looks like this particular system is not noticing that Test::Exception
requires Sub::Uplevel, then gets confused thinking it was *my* module that
needed Sub::Uplevel. What's even more concerning is the presence of line
noise right after the "make test FAILED"... Any idea what can be going on
here?

Thanks,
Tyler

    I have a fail against a module for exactly the same reason. I
    initially blamed Module::Build but they convinced me it was Imacat's
    setup. Apparently the output looks like an old version of something or
    other.

    http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bug.html?id=15034

    has details.

    Imacat didn't respond to my email at the time,

    Imacat didn't respond to my email at the time,
    That sucks. :-( If imacat's box has gone AWOL, is there anything
    cpan testers can do to flag it as such? At least until his/her attention is
    grabbed and the problem is addressed?

    I'll look into it and return ASAP. It's Chinese New Year here, so
    give me a break and allow some delay, OK? You could write to me again
    if I do not return for some certain period.
    I wouldn't have suggested that unless fergal had indicated that it
    was a long-standing issue. Now that I know you're aware of the problem and
    looking into it, I thank you and will patiently await your reply. :)

    Happy year of the dog!

    CPANPLUS sent the report to your module because its tests failed,
    because it uses Test::Exception which uses Sub::Uplevel which wasn't
    available during the test phase. The reason why Sub::Uplevel is missing
    may come from a problem in IMACAT's box, or maybe not. Details are
    missing because of the still present interaction problem between
    CPANPLUS and Module::Build. What you call "line noise" is most probably
    "File not found" in Chinese or Taiwanese.

    The best thing is to ask IMACAT to send you a more detailed report.

    1. I suspect that it reflects the bug in CPANPLUS referenced by Fergal
    in his posting.

    2. In Imacat's defense: When I was working on revisions to
    ExtUtils::ModuleMaker last summer, I had frequent FAILS on Imacat's
    boxes for versions that PASSed on other people's boxes. I corresponded
    with her, and ultimately concluded that the fault was with my code, not
    with her testing box. While I don't know the specific details, she
    appears to keep a more pristine testing box than the other CPAN testers,
    so if you fail to include prerequisites or do something else that's not
    kosher, she (her box, actually) is more likely to give you a FAIL than
    other testers.

    So my own rule of thumb is: If my distro has passed all its tests on
    imacat's boxes, then it has *really* passed!

    It's a NLS error message. In Big 5, it says. 'This file or
    directory does not exist.'

    Ahh, in my firefox it looked like a bunch of copyright symbols and
    squiggly lines. Guess I've got a few fonts to install. :)

    The weird thing is, on most chinese language webpages, I get little
    squares with the 2-byte hex code for the appropriate character written
    inside...
