  • It might be worth mentioning that when Miyagawa developed cpanminus one of the test cases he used was installing my wiki MojoMojo, the heaviest app on CPAN according to your Heavy 100 index. Thus the actual number is probably higher than 99%, or at least the 1% would be in an obscure corner of the CPAN.
    • I note '(using stupidly naive "statistics")'.

      Clearly, 99% does NOT mean that a 271-dependency distribution must fail according to either "real" statistics, or the real world.

      Plus, there's a bias there that makes the discussion moot, because cpanm has been specifically checked and monitored to work with that distribution.

      • False. No, i didn't add any specific workarounds or anything to MojoMojo and its dependencies. I just used that, along with Jifty, Catalyst and KiokuDB, as a known source of "huge dependencies of well-maintained modules" test bed. I also tested with randomly selected 100 modules from from 02packages, the same thing.
