  Comment: There is more Perl than Python on Freshmeat (Score 1) on 2008.12.31 8:41

Everyone knows that the Perl folks use CPAN. I used CPAN well before I'd ever heard of Freshmeat. However, there *are* a lot of projects tagged with Perl on Freshmeat (more than Python ones), so clearly at *some point in time*, Perl people, despite the existence of CPAN, were registering a lot of projects there. That activity has since flatlined. So: why "all of a sudden" (I don't have data, unfortunately, that can point out when and how suddenly this actually happened) are fewer Perl projects showing up on Freshmeat? CPAN *cannot* be the reason, because CPAN has always been there! Thanks, Dave
