I just removed the beta tag from the front page. 6 years of beta
is enough and probably misleading.

Analysis was stalled from 2015-08-15 to 2015-08-29 and again
2015-08-30 to 2015-09-14 due to to upstream data reconstruction.

Analysis was stalled from 2015-05-03 to 2015-05-15 due to a
major reconstruction of cpantesters.

These days I added a small ajax based layer to the /solved/
page, so that a status message appears below the headline when
something relevant to this distro happens on the server. It works
If a new calculation is scheduled, it is noted as "...is
scheduled". The message changes to "...has commenced" when the new
calculation has started to run. And when the new calculation has
finished, the text changes to a recommendation to reload the page.
Also the number of Passes and Fails is updated regularly. When one
of them increases, then a button appears that lets the user
schedule a new calculation.

At the Perl Mongers meeting yesterday, Slaven asked for the
(then missing) page
It was missing because the release was 2003, i.e. older than eight
years. Since all the optimizations of the least six months
(Postgres, Redis) have resolved enough bottlenecks, I simply
bumped the maximum time we track releases from 8 to 16 years, and
there we are. 16 years ago, that was the time when
BJEPS/Data-Xtab-1.01.tar.gz was released (Hi Brian). We'll see
when we will have to double the period next time. Let me know!

On perl5-porters I just announced the experimental new page
It demonstrates a way how the cpantesters and analysis data can be
consumed from a different perspective, namely for focussing QA on
a new perl maint release.
For the new table I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade
the jquery tablesorter. So there it is, both for the new and the
old pages. It made the tables uglier and they more often sort
badly, but at least it has the arrows in the sortable table
Over the holidays analysis has got a redis based job queue that
allows us to conveniently run regression calculations in parallel.
I ♥ Redis.

Today we have finished migration of all database tables from
sqlite to postgresql. Whatever went wrong with sqlite, we're now
better in terms of both speed and concurrency, allowing us to make

At the London Perl Workshop Barbie talks about the amazingly
improved speed of cpantesters. It looks like we could now change
gears on analysis too to provide fresh statistical results faster
than in the past. We are already a bit faster automatically now
but there's still work left to get on par with the speed that
cpantesters now support.
Maybe we can soon remove all the *lt-matrix* links because the
normal matrix is usually fresh enough.
- 2012-11-06 Andreas J Koenig <email@example.com>
We've been low on fresh data recently while September and
October are being re-scanned for missing reports. This has lead to
the improvised cpantesters matrix site at
http://188.8.131.52/cgi-bin/cpantestersmatrix.pl and analysis
now has a link labeled *lt-matrix* (for log.txt-matrix) on the
homepage to this site until cpantesters is uptodate again.

Analysis was stalled between 2011-11-11 and 2011-11-21. The
database exported by cpantesters was corrupted so analysis did not
get fresh data.

Analysis was stalled between 2011-08-27 and 2011-10-12 due to
the reconstruction of cpantesters. Today we're trying to go into
business again. One schema change has been identified and our code
adjusted accordingly. We have no other way to verify our code than
to simply run it. Please be sceptic, do not trust any results.
Verify everything before you draw conclusions.

The porting to the virtual box went smoothely and analysis has
taken up the full service again. Pause should now be as fast as it
was before the analysis project started, which was pretty fast.
If you're still facing a slow pause.perl.org please let me know.
Then we must investigate somewhere else.
- 2011-02-12 Andreas J. Koenig <email@example.com>
Complaints about PAUSE being slow have been voiced repeatedly.
Since analysis.cpantesters.org is (was) running on the same box as
pause.perl.org I'm starting an emergency plan for analysis.
The sponsors have provided a virtual box that I can use for
analysis for further explorations. I'm starting to port analysis
to the other box today.
If it turns out that analysis was to blame for pause slowness
we'll keep the two split. I'll try to keep up the service as much
Until further notice please expect reduced availability.

Analysis has survived the first week after the rewrite for Cpan
Testers 2.0. It is slow and needs further work but it seems stable
enough to invite users to make active use of it.
- 2010-08-07 Andreas J. Koenig <email@example.com>
At the beginning of April analysis had to be taken down because
of the necessary construction works on Cpantesters 2.0. Since CT
2.0 seems to be coming along very nicely I'm trying to get
analysis running again today. It will take a few days before I can
say if it is working again. Please be patient, I'll make an
announcement on the cpan-testers-discuss mailinglist as soon as
I'm confident that we can stay up for a while.

Robert Spier informs me that the outage in LA has an impact on
the nntp feed I'm using. http://log.perl.org/ has more about it.

Barbie announces on cpantesters-discuss that the cpantesters
master database is marking apocal's reports as invalid.
Consequence is that at the moment analysis and cpantesters are
slightly out of sync because we're not tracking each other's
blockings. But this is only a temporary state.
- 2010-01-17 Andreas J. Koenig <firstname.lastname@example.org>
analysis starts filtering all FAIL reports from apocal out
because his smoker has gone wild. Currently you may see different
counts of FAILs on the home page than on the individual regression
pages due to this filtering.
