CPANTS up again, on a new server

[ #32645 ]

CPANTS is now up and running again, with fresh data, which will be available again daily. (There might be a problem with UTF8 and the database, but that should be solvable soon (especially as I know finally groked Unicode)).

CPANTS now lives on a new server provided by . Thanks!!

You can now continue playing the CPANTS game and raising your kwalitee (and hopefully making CPAN a nicer place in the process...)

Thanks to the nice DBD::PgLite::MirrorPgToSQLite there is now a daily SQLite dump of the CPANTS database available. I hope you won't get blind from looking at the schema... You can get the latest dump from this URL:
Have fun playing with the data!

  • Thanks for getting this essential service back up and running.

    Now that it's back, interested in new metrics? :)

    For example, it turns out the use of "All rights reserved" in the copyright section of the module is actually a mistake and counter to the rules of the Perl/GPL/etc license.

    It might be handy to check for cases where we know the license cannot allow "All rights reserved" but it has it anyway.
    • That's not quite true. It is a redundant statement though and quite likely included only due to cut-n-paste examples.

      The statement used to be required to appear, in order to explicitly assert copyright to the author of the work. This only applied to works that were first published in the Americas (North & South). For more detail read this article [].

      Not sure how relevant a metric for this would be. The statement isn't exactly wrong, just meaningless.
