  • It would be helpful if authors would keep at least one older version on CPAN:

    1) The diff tool at search.cpan.org doesn't work against Backpan
    2) Sometimes unexpected bugs or incompatibilities do crop up, and in those cases, it's nice to be able to use CPAN.pm to revert rather than having to go and manually download the tarball.
    • I totally agree with this! I would even argue that only releases over a year old should be deleted. Having the last couple of versions available for forensic investigations using the search.cpan.org diff tool is very valuable.

      Disk space is cheap; 3GB is less than a single DVD. :)
