Message ID:

According to Richard Foley  <>:
:While installing perl-5.6.0-RC2, I thought I'd read the INSTALL docs, I
:don't suppose many people do, but there you have it... :-)

What kinds of things could be automated as a part of building
a 'release', so that before a release the docs can be built for the
various formats without error, etc.?  Perhaps a script that a) identifies
all pod documentation in the release, b) does some sort of 'lint-like
check' to see if each pod is properly parseable, and c) some sort of
test to see if any doc processing for the particular platform works
properly (whether it is pod2man, pod2html, or whatever...).
