NAME

       CPANPLUS::Internals::Report - internals for sending test reports

SYNOPSIS

         ### enable test reporting
         $cb->configure_object->set_conf( cpantest => 1 );

         ### set custom mx host, shouldn't normally be needed
         $cb->configure_object->set_conf( cpantest_mx => 'smtp.example.com' );

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides all the functionality to send test reports to
       "http://testers.cpan.org" using the "Test::Reporter" module.

       All methods will be called automatically if you have "CPANPLUS" configured to enable test
       reporting (see the "SYNOPSIS").

METHODS

   $bool = $cb->_have_query_report_modules
       This function checks if all the required modules are here for querying reports. It returns
       true and loads them if they are, or returns false otherwise.

   $bool = $cb->_have_send_report_modules
       This function checks if all the required modules are here for sending reports. It returns
       true and loads them if they are, or returns false otherwise.

   @list = $cb->_query_report( module => $modobj, [all_versions => BOOL, verbose => BOOL] )
       This function queries the CPAN testers database at http://testers.cpan.org/ for test
       results of specified module objects, module names or distributions.

       The optional argument "all_versions" controls whether all versions of a given distribution
       should be grabbed.  It defaults to false (fetching only reports for the current version).

       Returns the a list with the following data structures (for CPANPLUS version 0.042) on
       success, or false on failure. The contents of the data structure depends on what
       http://testers.cpan.org returns, but generally looks like this:

                 {
                   'grade' => 'PASS',
                   'dist' => 'CPANPLUS-0.042',
                   'platform' => 'i686-pld-linux-thread-multi'
                   'details' => 'http://nntp.x.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/98316'
                   ...
                 },
                 {
                   'grade' => 'PASS',
                   'dist' => 'CPANPLUS-0.042',
                   'platform' => 'i686-linux-thread-multi'
                   'details' => 'http://nntp.x.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/99416'
                   ...
                 },
                 {
                   'grade' => 'FAIL',
                   'dist' => 'CPANPLUS-0.042',
                   'platform' => 'cygwin-multi-64int',
                   'details' => 'http://nntp.x.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/99371'
                   ...
                 },
                 {
                   'grade' => 'FAIL',
                   'dist' => 'CPANPLUS-0.042',
                   'platform' => 'i586-linux',
                   'details' => 'http://nntp.x.perl.org/group/perl.cpan.testers/99396'
                   ...
                 },

       The status of the test can be one of the following: UNKNOWN, PASS, FAIL or NA (not
       applicable).

   $bool = $cb->_send_report( module => $modobj, buffer => $make_output, failed => BOOL, [save =>
       BOOL, address => $email_to, verbose => BOOL, force => BOOL]);
       This function sends a testers report to "cpan-testers@perl.org" for a particular
       distribution.  It returns true on success, and false on failure.

       It takes the following options:

       module
           The module object of this particular distribution

       buffer
           The output buffer from the 'make/make test' process

       failed
           Boolean indicating if the 'make/make test' went wrong

       save
           Boolean indicating if the report should be saved locally instead of mailed out. If
           provided, this function will return the location the report was saved to, rather than
           a simple boolean 'TRUE'.

           Defaults to false.

       address
           The email address to mail the report for. You should never need to override this, but
           it might be useful for debugging purposes.

           Defaults to "cpan-testers@perl.org".

       verbose
           Boolean indicating on whether or not to be verbose.

           Defaults to your configuration settings

       force
           Boolean indicating whether to force the sending, even if the max amount of reports for
           fails have already been reached, or if you may already have sent it before.

           Defaults to your configuration settings
