[EP-tech] Google Docs API and Perl/EPrints

Hi Ian,

The reason I want to use that particular one is because the team I work
with use a Google Docs spreadsheet for this report that the button
generates. In the past it was all done "by hand" which is to say the
repository developer ran a series of scripts, generated a CSV file and then
copied it into the google spreadsheet. Then the team could all access it at
once and work on it.

TLDR: Unfortunately, one of the dependencies fails the tests during install

Full version:

Net::Google::DataAPI::Auth::OAuth2 won't install due to failed tests.


The output mentions something about a "$hd" variable which I now think
relates to a "hosted domain". I can't tell if it's a "me" problem or a
problem with the module itself. Somebody else has had the exact same test
failures, but no solution seems to exist:


Anyway, I'll continue investigating solutions and alternatives. At the
moment I'm trying to learn all about OAuth2 which is as interesting as... a
totally uninteresting thing.

Thanks for your help!
