Re: [PATCH] On eliminating external tools from the release process
Message ID:
Hi all,

I've redone my changes, and even tested them. The process is not yet 
completely smooth on Windows, and I haven't found out exactly why. But 
testing the difference between the original sync-with-cpan and my 
changes on Linux uncovered some bad assumptions on my part about what 
the program was doing, so it was not all in vain.

In fact, using File::Temp runs counter to the idea of locally caching 
the module index, so I backed out that change after realizing it. The 
program now prefers $ENV{ TEMP } if set over the hardcoded '/tmp'.

The series of patches has entered blead as a non-fast-forward merge 
below 4387bc3c6899993ec4504edc3be8b5440ea61521 .
