CPAN + CPAN::Reporter Installation

Recent versions of CPAN now have the ability to send test reports to CPAN Testers automatically using CPAN::Reporter. This makes it easy for anyone to contribute whenever they install a new distribution.

CPAN-Reporter is easily installed and configured from the CPAN shell:

$ cpan
cpan> install CPAN::Reporter
cpan> reload cpan
cpan> o conf init test_report

CPAN will automatically install any needed dependencies, including upgrading CPAN itself. The "reload" command will reload CPAN and potentially prompt additional configuration if CPAN was upgraded.

The last command will start interactive configuration of CPAN::Reporter and create a configuration file if one doesn't already exist. See CPAN-Reporter Configuration for more details.
