CPAN Pull Request Challenge 2015

April CPR 2015 HTML::FormFu::DBIx::Model

This month's assigment is HTML::FormFu::DBIx::Model.
After my experience in March, where the cpan and github repos had differences I decided to clone the github repository and download and build the module via the interactive command cpan.
The github fork and clone went without a hitch but I found trouble with the cpan plan fairly early on.

I set debug all to see if I could understand what was happening. The results are quite verbose and I'm a complete beginner at this but here are extracts from the redirected output file.

Here's my get command starting off:

My March Assigment in CPR2015 - Filter::CommaEquals

I skipped February for domestic reasons; serendipitiously missing an assigment anyway.

My first Pull request

So I sorted out my first pull request today.

Things I learned:

  • qr is a neat way of quoting a regexp for later use .... 
  • github doesn't let you upload new branches - I had to create the branch on the forked repo on git hub. pull that, re-commit the changes, push that.  I know for next time.
  • set push.default - I'm using current - it works!
  • how to create a pull request.

So there you go ... the changes were trivial, simply deleting a line using version 0.77.
