I gave a short talk about a CPAN Meeting that is happening in two weeks. It's happening because the CPAN cabal hasn't met up in conferences this year and things need to be done. It's happening at my parent's place in Notting Hill and a lot of important CPAN-infrastructure discussions will take place. The meeting will be packed, but we all know that all the important decisions will be made during the beer track where everyone is welcome to attend. Most people will be around for the London.pm social meeting, so that'll be fun. I have just one thing to say about CPAN: metadata.
I generally think there are too many hidden things in the Perl world. I'm all for transparency. Hence my talk and this journal. I'll write up how it all goes too. If you have any serious ideas about CPAN, please comment on this entry and I'll bring it up during the meeting.
Anway, so I was around Amsterdam on Friday for work stuff and I met up with Jos and had a lot of fun. He obviously wants me to hack on CPANPLUS
