Attached to: How we deploy massive Perl applications at work

Thanks for this, I would love to hear more similar stories from other people.

In our case, we are still trying to be perfectionists and maintain >300 in-house .deb packages and several hundreds of hand-builded cpan packages as well.
Actually, in our case our "application" consists of many various scripts and daemons, working on different hosts and clusters, so it is impossible to pack everything in one package anyway.

I've been dreaming for a long time about fully-automated cpan-to-deb (and cpan-to-rpm) buildfarm which would build all cpan modules for every popular distribution. Actually, several of us from moscow-pm group tried to hack one recently, but nobody had enough cpan/debian toolchain experience to make it work yet. I wonder if we should ask for community help with it...
