  • Thanks for getting this essential service back up and running.

    Now that it's back, interested in new metrics? :)

    For example, it turns out the use of "All rights reserved" in the copyright section of the module is actually a mistake and counter to the rules of the Perl/GPL/etc license.

    It might be handy to check for cases where we know the license cannot allow "All rights reserved" but it has it anyway.
    • That's not quite true. It is a redundant statement though and quite likely included only due to cut-n-paste examples.

      The statement used to be required to appear, in order to explicitly assert copyright to the author of the work. This only applied to works that were first published in the Americas (North & South). For more detail read this article [tesco.net].

      Not sure how relevant a metric for this would be. The statement isn't exactly wrong, just meaningless.
