  • Why are we using a commercial service? I tried to add one for my main email address and then when I wanted to add another for my CPAN address I got: "You could add another email address if you had a premium account". $10 a year for hosting one image? No thank you.
    • NO thanks indeed. Why not just let users upload a gravater.jpg to their author directory?
      • That was my thought also, but note that CPAN and search.cpan.org are not the same thing. How would the CPAN mirrors feel about carrying those photos? I guess it will be so little data in total that it doesn’t matter, but…

        • If the problem is the space, I'm willing to host it and invite the Perl Hackers out there to write something similar to gravatar ;-)
          • The problem is very unlikely to be space. search.cpan.org almost certainly has more than enough. The problem is just that the CPAN mirrors consented to a particular kind of use of their service, as a precondition to providing it, and I wouldn’t want to give them valid reason to object for not being consulted.

            I don’t know if it’s actually a problem. Someone who knows more about the CPAN politics will have to tell me.
