Hi there $world and PAUSE administrators,
Commit bits to my CPAN modules are given freely. If a PAUSE administrator or some other core hackers can vouch for you, I don't mind if upload and indexing permission bits are handed out and I only find out about it later.
This is prompted by an IRC conversation. I'd gone away for the weekend and left people hanging about whether some permissions were available. The answer in general is "yes, and be nice with them."
