Changes for version 0.025 - 2020-01-13

  • Added
    • Added full report fetching to the fetch command. Now you can populate an entire local database using the API!
    • Added a resultset method to get recent uploads to CPAN.
    • Added a relationship from a CPAN release to its report metrics (pass/fail/na/unknown counts) to make fetching those metrics easy.
    • Added a method to total up all release metrics by dist/version. We store metrics based on other criteria (stable/dev perl, for example), so we need to be able to collate them.
    • Added accessor methods for common parts of the test report to both the TestReport and Stats objects. These two objects have the same API now, so one can be substituted for the other with little difference (except the Stats object lacks the full text of the report).
  • Fixed
    • Fixed cpantesters-schema command for the initial deploy. The workaround for the primary database is no longer necessary.
    • Fixed the "fetch" command script's options parsing and added better error checking from the API.
    • Fixed duplicate test summaries being created for the same report.
