       CPANPLUS::Hacking - developing CPANPLUS

       This document attempts to describe how to develop with the CPANPLUS environment most
       easily, how certain things work and why.

       This is basically a quick-start guide to people who want to add features or patches to

       Checkout CPANPLUS from its GIT repository at <https://github.com/jib/cpanplus-devel> .

       CPANPLUS follows the standard perl module installation process:

	   perl Makefile.PL
	   make test
	   make install

       When running "perl Makefile.PL" you will be prompted to configure.  If you have already
       done so, and merely wish to update the "Makefile", simply run:

	   perl Makefile.PL JFDI=1

       This will keep your configuration intact. Note however, if there are changes to the
       default configuration file "Config.pm-orig", you should either delete your current config
       file and reconfigure, or patch your config file from the new entries in "Config.pm-orig".

       If you'd rather not install the development version to your "site_perl" directory, that's
       no problem. You can set your "PERL5LIB" environment variable to CPANPLUS' "lib" directory,
       and you can run it from there.

       Tests are what tells us if CPANPLUS is working. If a test is not working, try to run it
       explicitly like this:

	   perl -I/path/to/cpanplus/lib t/XX_name_of_test.t 1

       The extra '1' makes sure that all the messages and errors (they might be errors we're
       testing for!) are being printed rather than kept quiet.	This is a great way to find out
       the context of any failures that may occur.

       If you believe this test failure proves a bug in CPANPLUS, the long output of the test
       file is something we'd like to see alongside your bug report.

       Sometimes you might find bugs in CPANPLUS' behaviour. If you encounter these in a
       development snapshot, we'd appreciate a complete patch (as described below in the "SENDING
       PATCHES" section.

       If it's way over your head, then of course reporting the bug is always better than not
       reporting it at all. Before you do so though, make sure you have the latest development
       snapshot, and the bug still persists there. If so, report the bug to this address:


       A good "patch" would have the following characteristics:

       Problem description
	   Describe clearly what the bug is you found, and what it should have done instead.

       Program demonstrating the bug
	   Show us how to reproduce the bug, in a simple of a program as possible

       [OPTIONAL] A patch to the test suite to test for the bug
	   Amend our test suite by making sure this bug will be found in this, and future
	   versions of CPANPLUS (see "SUPPLYING PATCHES")

       [OPTIONAL] A patch to the code + tests + documentation
	   Fix the bug, update the docs & tests. That way your bug will be gone forever :)

       Patches are a good thing, and they are welcome. Especially if they fix bugs you've found
       along the way, or that others have reported.

       We prefer patches in the following format:

       o   In "diff -u" or "diff -c" format

       o   From the root of the snapshot

       o   Including patches for code + tests + docs

       o   Sent per mail to bug-cpanplus@rt.cpan.org

       o   With subject containing "[PATCH]" + description of the patch

       You will always be informed if a patch is applied or rejected, and in case of rejection
       why that is (perhaps you can tweak the patch to have it accepted after all).
