I think it is better to test even with the optional test that uses UNIVERSAL::ref.

So I propose that you add checkdepends=('perl-universal-ref').

The other checkdepends mentioned are for release candidate testing, which is not needed in a stable release package like this.

Interesting point. checkdepend() are the dependencies that are needed to run the test suite. But what does it mean? To run only the test framework, to run the test suite successful or to run all tests successful, the mandatory as well as the optional tests (or at least the ones for linux)?

I usually ignore the optional tests. Because I think something optional is checked and it is not needed for normal operation of the module. But is this correct?

In this particular case:

my $h = Hash::MultiValue->new;

is ref $h, 'HASH';

It is checked when UNIVERAL::ref is used, Hash::MultiValue is recognized as a HASH.

The other skipped test is

t/release-pod-syntax.t .. skipped: these tests are for release candidate testing

Should we test it, because this version is a release candidate or not?

seems need as checkdepend()

t/ref.t ................. skipped: No UNIVERSAL::ref

I don't have time to maintain this package anymore.
