  • You know, I had a déjà vu when I read what you wrote about the Module::Collection thing. It's slightly different but solves a similar problem. Three points if you guess what I'm thinking of!


    P.S.: Where have you been in the past days?
    • Can't guess off the top of my head, other than maybe CPAN::Mini::Inject...

      As for where I've been, although I've moved into my new apartment, I can't get ADSL or wireless internet (or at least, not that doesn't suck hard) so I'm getting cable internet, which means a 1 week wait for the technician to turn up and connect it.

      So for the last week I've been working in offline mode (although a client of mine was nice enough to donate a desk at their office that I'll be using for the next few days) so I've really only been online during business hours, and in reduced capacity (little email, mostly no IRC, etc).
      • PAR::Repository does some of what you describe. The goals are different, but it also deals with scanning distributions, installing bunches, etc.

        Fortunately, PAR distro as simpler than CPAN distros :)
        • Hmm... if so, perhaps we should look at recycling/sharing some of the code between the two?
          • Hi,

            thought about this again. I might have been a little too quick in my reply. Well, there *are* common ideas in between the two projects. One of the things that triggered this was what you said about selecting specifically the newest versions of a module, etc. That's something PAR::Repository::Client does by default. The code is attached, but you'll realize that it's only as much code because it also deals with arch-type and perl-version which you shouldn't need to care about. PAR::Repository::* also takes
