  • I look forward to seeing this data aggregated (like you suggest) some way in CPANDB.
  • that this data is (basically) only for Strawberry perl default distribution use of CPAN?

    I think it would be lovely if all module downloads first registered the download (if possible) at a counter before actually using bandwidth of a mirror.

    • It can't work that way.

      CPAN pulls not just the tarballs, but also (and more importantly) the package indexes from the mirror. This full distributeness and zero single-point-of-failure design is what makes things like minicpan and private frozen corporate mirrors possible so easily.
