  • This is a known problem with the test suite in Template Toolkit.

    Tatsuhiko Miyagawa found it and patched it on the Template list: http://www.template-toolkit.org/pipermail/template s/2002-April/003150.html [template-toolkit.org]

    I think Andy patched the CVS version, but it's probably safe just to skip the DBI tests.

      I hope they move this into CPAN soon. One of the biggest things that annoys perl users is stuff trying to be installed with CPAN.pm puking like this. I've seen module authors take eight months to take patches like the above and put a new version out on CPAN.

      • Normally it's not that long between releases. Andy likes to release interim developer releases (releases that you can download from the tt2.org website, but not for the CPAN) so various people can test out the changes on various platforms.

        The rationalle behind this is that quick releases to the CPAN could theoretically introduce much worse bugs that the ones that were originally patched, and by having people test the developers' releases he ensures that we get less showstopping bugs.
