  • doesn't mean it isn't used or unimportant. The main menu on search is automatically generated from that list and it used to be as close to a list of publicly deemed worthy modules as one could get. People don't need to download the list that frequently anymore, they just use the index on search.

    And pair.com is the mirror that serves www.cpan.org.

    • I understand that the main menu is automatically generated from the list. See bullet point "search.cpan.org browsing is misleading".

      I also understand that "it used to be as close to a list of publicly deemed worthy modules as one could get", but that's no longer the case. Any ol' module gets on there, and plenty of good ones are ignored. I think it's safe to say that any one of Simon Cozens' modules would be "publicly deemed worthy", but there are only two of his 100+ on there. Ingy, 5. Schwern, 11.

      • Not any module gets on the list. I don't think we approve even half of the submissions.

        I'm not sure any of Simon's modules qualify as anything. Wasn't his hundredth module only POD just so he could say that he had a hundred modules?

        I use the Module List quite a bit to help people name their modules or work with other people with similar modules. It does not some maintenance though.
