  • I know someone's working on this, but I want something that's as transparent as CPAN.pm to work with it: install direct from Subversion, with a specified release/branch. (Am I showing my CVS roots?)
    • Install WHAT direct from WHICH subversion exactly?

      I mean, I just wrote a script for my current client which does that for the dozen non-CPAN (and a few CPAN) dists that need to be installed to set up a particular system.

      Takes a list of tarball names, pulls them from the /releases/ dir in subversion, perl Makefile.PL, make, make test, make install, setting PREFIX and PERL5LIB etc.

      It's maybe 100 lines and took 2 hours.

      While it might be nice to have a generalised form, I'm not sure it's makes for an 8 week project.
