In a minimal docker setup using debian/stretch (stable) the test suite fails. The Dockerfile:

# maybe: docker pull debian:stretch
# docker build -t perl-test . && docker run perl-test
FROM debian:stretch

RUN apt-get -y update
RUN apt-get -y --no-install-recommends install perl make gcc

#RUN apt-get -y --no-install-recommends install liblwp-protocol-https-perl

CMD cpan -t ATRODO/App-MechaCPAN-0.26.tar.gz

The failing tests:

The first two failing tests are fixed by installing LWP::Protocol::https before (see the commented out RUN line in the Dockerfile). The third test still fails (and probably should dealt into another issue).

Thank you very much for the ticket. I have seen these failures on cpantesters, but had so far assumed that the 301 as caused because of some strange network configuration causing github URLs to be redirected. Having this information however makes it clear that the issue is that https is missing from LWP and (I assume) LWP rewriting my https url to http since it can't do https. I will be investigating how to handle this case for the next version.
