I'm also head of [], maintainer of the CPANTS [] project, member of the TPF Grants Commitee [] and the YAPC Europe Foundation [].

I've got stuff on CPAN [], held various talks [] and organised YAPC::Europe 2007 in Vienna [].

CPANTS snippets #1

[ #17355 ]

I finally started a new CPANTS run yesterday evening, after adding some features (check for POD errors, check for the mysterious NINJA-files)

Data as available as a SQLite file here, or grab Module::CPANTS::asHash from CPAN (if you prefere using a 15MB Hash for data munging...)

Here's some data:


sqlite> select kwalitee_abs,count(kwalitee_abs) from cpants group by kwalitee order by kwalitee;

kwalitee_abs   count(kwalitee_abs)
------------  -------------------
0/9           30
1/9           1
2/9           1
3/9           13
4/9           40
5/9           97
6/9           156
7/9           628
8/9           2236
9/9           3145

This shows that the overall kwalitee of CPAN is quite good (but currently there are only a few metrics). 84.8% have one or no flaw. The 30 dist with no points are mostly gziped scripts by TOMC.


There are 1219 dist (12%) with POD-Errors (according to Pod::Simple). Here are the top-ten POD-error dists:

sqlite> select errors,dist from pod where errors>0 order by errors desc limit 11;

error   dist
-----  -------------------------------

334     Bio-MAGE-20020902.6
