    I don't know much about Maven specifically, but your description sounds like a CPAN modules.
    • No, they are not even close to being the same but I can understand why you would say that given my description and not knowing maven. Maven in 3 non-descript words would be a "project management framework". Granted I don't know everything about CPAN either. : )
      • I understand the comment. You said that Maven does managing dependencies, documentation, tests etc. CPAN has a built-in system to manage dependencies and figure out when one thing needs another. CPAN has a built-in standard for how to document things, and that documentation winds up on a standard website. CPAN has built-in mechanisms for testing, and people have built frameworks around CPAN to test what works on what platforms. And CPAN does more.

        In the case of CPAN it does these things in very, very different ways than Maven does. But the actual functionality that you said Maven has, CPAN has as well.

        (And from reading other responses in this thread, it sounds to me like CPAN does a better job of it without making it obvious that it is even trying to do so.)
