your favorite CPAN modules
I wonder if having a central database of my favorite modules
or modules I use
would be of any use? If used by enough people it could give some
statistics on how widespread the use of a certain module. If cross referenced with CPANRATINGS
it could be used to generate some improved statistics.
Of course I know that this can be of any interest only if there is a large number of people who actively maintain the list of the modules they use. So what could be a reason to do so ? Maybe a personalized alert when a new version of one of those modules comes out ? A web forum specialized on that module ?
Any thougths ?
