That's great. Very nice of you to follow up.

I assume you're now going to be using cpanm for installing modules from CPAN, as recommended and facilitated by perlbrew ... if so, I urge installing App::cpanminus::reporter in each Perl version and contributing your test reports to the CPAN Testers service (by simply typing cpanm-reporter after you've installed a module or a group of them). It's a great and almost effortless way to give back to the amazing infrastructure that makes working with Perl (including different Perl versions on different OSes) so easy and enjoyable.

Have fun!

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    I didn't knew this module yet, but I'm more then happy if I can give something back. Just out of curiosity, would you do this after each try? Sometimes I'm getting unsuccessful install MODULE::Name because I'm missing dependencies. After installing dependencies the installation works fine. Would you do a report after each try or just after finishing all kinds of stuff and before closing the cpan shell?
