in thread non-CPAN module distributions

I think you can do all of these things just by making separate test scripts for each module and only running the one that pertains to the module you're working on. That's what I'm doing now.

    Having a single test script per module is not always practical.

    Also I find having people work independently is harder if you keep everything bundled together. With separate distributions you can check individual modules in and out, only update single modules, avoid name clashes with test scripts from other modules, document prerequisites on a module-by-module basis, etc.

    There are certainly other ways of getting the same sort of functionality - but I don't see that having multiple module directories has any major disadvantages.
