I'm trying to determine whether this older ticket is closable.

I went to and tried to locate reports for the most recent officially released versions of CPAN distributions mentioned over the course of this RT's existence.  Here are my impressions:

* Getopt-Euclid 0.4.5 (latest distribution): both blead (5.21.5) and 5.18.3 doing well
* Mail-SpamAssassin 3.4.0 satisfactory
* DBD-PO: has never passed a majority of OSes going back to 5.10.0
* HTML::StripScripts 1.05: failing on Linux (only OS with a lot of reports) since 5.21.1
* Tripletail 0.50: failed on most OSes since 5.8.9
* LaTeX-Encode 0.091.6 (latest distribution) strong PASS on all OS
* Net-validMX 2.2.0 (latest distribution): has failed on all OSes since 5.8.9
* Encode 2.62 (latest distribution): small %age of failures, but generally strong on all OSes since 5.8.1

So, with one exception, these distributions are either (a) well maintained and consistently PASS a very high majority of their smoke test runs; or (b) they're unmaintained junk that P5P shouldn't worry about.

The one exception: This distribution, though not widely smoked, had consistent PASSes from 5.17.10 to 5.21.1.  It has consistently FAILed in recent months.  (See:  So this is the only one that I think P5P might be on the hook for.

Thank you very much.
