[perl #121638] 'Global symbol "$identifier" requires explicit package' error message
Message ID:
I tried a CPAN smoke of changing this message.  The high level results are attached as the first file.

If I look at the failures, the ones which have the changed wording in their test output amount to 130 distinct distributions.  The second attachment is an example of an expected failure there.

But some of the failures are more like the third attachment.  And looking at the smoke output, a lot of things failed because of failed prerequisites.  Steffen doesn't understand it.  The code is using cpanplus to compile things.

And there is that the output says 2800 distributions are missing from the output; also something I and Steffen don't understand.

So I'm not sure how to proceed.  What do you think?
