I'll take you up on that.

Yeah, the tests fail for me. I kinda want to find out why before I submit

Here's what I've got so far:


It builds, and "perl -MGD -e 1" runs successfully, meaning the module
is found and loaded by perl.

TAG is set to NonSBo in that build, so you won't forget it's not a real
SBo build (yet).
