blue_cowdawg has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

In my continuing quest to make my life easier I've been trying to use Jenkins to stage distributions of software (and Puppet modules) for distribution into the production environment. Since I've been going great guns lately writing Perl based tools that's been including writing my own Perl modules.

I latched onto cpan2rpm as a way to create RPMs to allow Puppet to distribute my modules as needed. Works manually but doesn't seem to work from within a Jenkins job.

Anymonk have any experience with this?

Here is cpan2rpms last few words before the job exits abnormally:

+ cpan2rpm --no-sign . -- cpan2rpm - Ver: 2.028 -- Upgrade check Fetch: HTTP -- module: /var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/jenkins/workspace/Perl JSON -- Metadata retrieval Build step 'Execute shell' marked build as failure Finished: FAILURE

Unfortunately not very informative.
