Fwd: [PATCH] making Compress::Bzip2 work

Hello

It looks like the original developer of Compress::Bzip2 has disappeared:

The original message was received at Sun, 20 Jul 2003 14:51:31 -0400 (EDT)
from ifi.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de [129.69.211.1]

    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<azemgi@rupert.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de>
     (reason: 550 5.1.1 User unknown)
azemgi@rupert
     (reason: 550 5.1.1 User unknown)
     (expanded from: <azemgi@rupert.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de>)

But then, I've noticed that on www.cpan.org, a Version 1.02 of 
Compress::Bzip2 can be found. But why does the old CPAN shell 
download version 1.00 ? I'm using the mirror on: 
ftp://sunsite.cnlab-switch.ch/mirror/CPAN - the version 1.02 is even 
there, in KCARNUT's directory. It is merely not found by the CPAN 
shell.

Marco Carnut's new version already solves the BZ2_ prefix problem. 
But it does still not solve the failing test case!

My questions:
- How comes the wrong download? CPAN shell bug or did Marco Carnut 
something wrong?
- Shouldn't it be made a requirement for CPAN uploads to pass 'make test'?

Cheers
Christian.
