Dist::Zilla::Plugin::FakeRelease(3) fake plugin to test release


version 4.300020


user = CPANAUTHORID ; # optional.


This plugin is a Releaser that does nothing. It is directed to plugin authors, who may need a dumb release plugin to test their shiny plugin implementing BeforeRelease and AfterRelease.

When this plugin does the release, it will just log a message and finish.

If you set the environment variable "DZIL_FAKERELEASE_FAIL" to a true value, the plugin will die instead of doing nothing. This can be useful for authors wanting to test reliably that release failed.

You can optionally provide the 'user' parameter, which defaults to 'AUTHORID', which will allow things that depend on this metadata ( Sometimes provided by UploadToCPAN ) to still work. ( For example: Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Twitter )
