Bug#713910: ITP: libcpan-reporter-smoker-perl -- turnkey CPAN Testers smoking module

Owner: Marius Gavrilescu <marius@ieval.ro>

  Version         : 0.24
  Upstream Author : David Golden <dagolden@cpan.org>

  Description     : turnkey CPAN Testers smoking module

Rudimentary smoke tester for CPAN Testers, built upon CPAN::Reporter.
Use at your own risk. It requires a recent version of CPAN::Reporter to run.

Currently, CPAN::Reporter::Smoker requires zero independent configuration;
instead it uses configuration settings from CPAN.pm and CPAN::Reporter.

Once started, it retrieves a list of distributions from the configured CPAN 
mirror and begins testing them in reverse order of upload. It will skip any
distribution which has already had a report sent by CPAN::Reporter.

* No configuration needed
* Tests each distribution as a separate CPAN process -- each distribution has
  prerequisites like build_requires satisfied from scratch
* Automatically checks for new distributions every twelve hours or as otherwise
* Continues until interrupted with CTRL-C
* Checks CPAN.pm "distroprefs" to see if distributions should be skipped
  (before handing off to CPAN)
