SPUG: Presentation wanted: CPAN-Tester

Although I heard a rumor that our March meeting presentation is already
selected, I wanted to reach out and make a personal request for a SPUG
presentation. I would really love a presentation on how to be a
CPAN-Tester (like setting up a "clean room" or sandbox to perform nearly
automated testing of newly release distributions).

I would love to leave a machine or two burning through new CPAN uploads
feeding results back. I just made my first CPAN contribution recently and
was bowled over by the quality and diversity of the test reports. I'd
prefer to contribute to this instead of giving CPU cycles to searching for
extra terrestrials, cracking ciphers, or folding proteins.

And, if I can share my ignorance without being laughed at too much, I
would love a little hand-holding introduction to Perlmonks. How do I make
it useful to me without spending a lot of time on the site (I'm still
trying to kick my Slashdot addiction).

                                things can go wrong at once.
