Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

[ #13306 ]
Last week I managed to release a new version of Module::CPANTS, which was dedicated to Jos and Elaine. There are two new metrics in this release: the packed and unpacked distribution size and the total number of releases for that distribution. The latter involves rsyncing BACKPAN which is amusing in its own right. Here is all the data Module::CPANTS now gives you for Acme::Colour:

  'Acme-Colour-0.20.tar.gz' => {
    'author' => 'LBROCARD',
    'description' => 'additive and subtractive human-readable colours',
    'files' => [
    'lines' => {
      'nonpod' => 170,
      'pod' => 95,
      'total' => 265,
      'with_comments' => 8
    'releases' => 5,
    'requires' => [
    'requires_module' => {
      'Graphics::ColorNames' => 0,
      'List::Util' => 0,
      'Test::Simple' => 0
    'requires_recursive' => [
    'size' => {
      'packed' => 3883,
      'unpacked' => 13078
    'testers' => {
      'fail' => 1,
      'pass' => 5

Thanks to my new owners for letting me work on this...
