CPAN::Mini::Devel - Create CPAN::Mini mirror with developer releases


This documentation describes version 0.03.


     $ minicpan -c CPAN::Mini::Devel


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 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.

CPAN::Mini::Devel also mirrors the indices/find-ls.gz file, which is used to identify developer releases.


See Mini::CPAN.
