Daily-updated test coverage reports are now available for those BioPerl
packages which make use of the Build.PL mechanism (except bioperl-db):
These reports will help us to know the current 'quality' of the code in
SVN for most of the BioPerl modules. This idea was started by Nathan
Haigh and Sendu a long time ago and it was my fault to not implement on
time the necessary script to run the process on a daily basis, so
apologies for that.
There are still a few things to be done in order to have this working as
- Nathan, current Devel::Cover module from CPAN doesn't include the JS
modifications to make table columns sortable. Do you know what happened
to the code you contributed to the author for that?
- Reports could be generated for the rest of the BioPerl packages as
soon as they're migrated to the Build.PL infrastructure. Anyone up for that?
- bioperl-db tests require BioSQL to be setup in the webserver machine,
and the same goes for bioperl-run's tests with ALL of its dependencies.
The bioperl.org site is co-hosted with all of the other OBF projects and
that machine also takes care of other things (mailing lists, etc), so I
would like your feedback on possible workarounds to not overload the
server if we want to setup such test reports.
Thanks & regards,
