  • Are you asking to:
    • move the mechanism by which namespace requests are submitted (use.perl slash plugin vs. modules@perl.org)?
    • increase the number of people who are responsible for responding to (and approving?) namespace requests? (the members of modules@perl.org can't really be blamed for being so busy)
    • make a fundemental change in the management of CPAN namespaces, including the switch to use perl and the increase of namespace monitors?

    I really don't care which goal you have in mind. What I really c

    • Well what I really meant to do was raise some discussion about it :-)

And quite a few of that 30 or so is replies. So thinking along the lines of 10 module requests a day, it's not too much work to see which are valid module requests and approve the story... But then I wouldn't want
