  • This is something I'd like to work on, as soon as I have a lot of free time. My interest is getting at the data and populating the databases.
  • This is exactly the kind of project I was anticipating with my very first journal entry [perl.org].

    I would love to help out with this. Unfortunately, I cannot promise much in the way of tuits in the near future. However, at very least, expect me to publish some thoughts on the design aspects of this after I dust them off and edit them.

  • At GPW, I discovered the quite usefull module DBD::PgLite::MirrorPgToSQLite. Using this, it's totaly easy to generate a SQLite dump of the CPANTS DB.

    As soon as I find some time to finish the setup on the new (yet again) server, you can expect a daily dump of all CPANTS data to sqlite.

    WRT to DBIx::Class: I'm already using it to access the CPANTS DB, and could probably help out with creating some of the tools you're talking about. BUT: I have a big project to finish until 2nd April, plus my day job, plus YAPC
  • I'm interested to help with this as well. Last night I ran into a use case:

    I was thinking about packaging up a script with the whole dependency chain so it could be easily installed. CPAN-Index could me query to see exactly what the dependency chain is.
