sniffing the 5.16 smoke
Message ID:

I have smelled the smoke, and it is not good.

Let's review some platforms:

Linux   - seems mostly okay, but I have a bunch of failures from Tux on
          OpenSUSE, mostly failing when using ccache, failing on
          Tux, what's up?  Anybody else having difficulties?

Solaris - builds just fine for me with suncc and gnucc;  I see one failure
          from TonyC related to op/sigsystem.t and Sockt/t/getnameinfo.t

          TonyC, any idea what's up with that?  I had no difficulty.

Darwin  - Looks good.  No surprise to me, I build it on Darwin all the time.
          I see some red reports from TonyC, but the logs show all tests
          successful, so I think it's a reporting problem..?

That concludes all the platforms where I regularly build.  Here are more:

MSWin   - Looks... pretty good!  Well, about as good as usual.  I'm not sure
          what's up with the test failure for /cpan/Memoize/t/expmod_t.t

          My plan is to try to get a Win32 smoke going overnight here.  I have
          a build box, but it's a VM and quite slow.  Anyone else want to chime

          Reini reported a problem with Encode (#112612) not building because
          it uses miniperl but should use perl.  I haven't seen anyone else
          reproduce that yet.  I've asked for more info.

Cygwin  - Looks bad.  I don't know what cygwin looked like around, say,
          5.14.0-RC0.  Does it ever tend to smoke clean? :-/

          Who are our other Cygwin experts on staff?

          I don't have a Cygwin build environment at my disposal.

NetBSD  - Looking pretty bad.  I really have no idea what's up here, but surely
          someone does, or can offer speculation.  Some of these reports look
          like the Darwin fail:  all tests successful, report marked bad.  Then
          one has a pile of dbm failures.  Are things really working or not?

          I don't have a NetBSD machine at my disposal.

VMS     - I see a failure.  I don't know what's up.  Craig?  Anybody?

AIX     - Holy cow, it's green!  That's some great news!

HP-UX   - Looks *terrible*.  Lots of failures, and flipping through them, there
          seem to be quite a few different kinds of failure.  Tux, do you have
          some idea what's up, here?

          I don't have access to an HP-UX build environment.

Have I missed any platforms I should not have missed?

Right now, at the very least, HP-UX and NetBSD look blockingly bad.  I think we
need more information on Cygwin and VMS and Win32.

Please chime in.  Remember, the only platforms that I rely on seem to be
working just fine... ;)
