CPAN::Mini::Devel::Recent - Create CPAN::Mini mirror with recent developer releases
$ minicpan -c CPAN::Mini::Devel::Recent
CPAN::Mini::Devel::Recent is similar to CPAN::Mini::Devel, except it uses the new, experimental
RECENT-* index files on CPAN, which are updated more frequently than the
indices/find-ls.gz file that CPAN::Mini::Devel uses.
Normally, CPAN::Mini creates a minimal CPAN mirror with the latest version of each distribution, but excluding developer releases (those with an underscore in the version number, like 0.10_01).
CPAN::Mini::Devel::Recent enhances CPAN::Mini to include the latest developer and non-developer release in the mirror. For example, if Foo-Bar-0.01, Foo-Bar-0.02, Foo-Bar-0.03_01 and Foo-Bar-0.03_02 are on CPAN, only Foo-Bar-0.02 and Foo-Bar 0.03_02 will be mirrored. This is particularly useful for creating a local mirror for smoke testing.
Unauthorized releases will also be included if they resemble a distribution name already in the normal CPAN packages list.
There may be errors retrieving very new modules if they are indexed but not yet synchronized on the mirror.
Please report any bugs or feature using the CPAN Request Tracker. Bugs can be submitted through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Queue=CPAN-Mini-Devel-Recent
