  • 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 pro
    • SVN4CPAN [scratchcomputing.com]? It’s abandoned, but the bits are there for the taking [scratchcomputing.com].

      That would indeed be very worthwhile.

      • Not really abandoned, just not economically feasible for an out-of-work plumber such as myself to spend lots of time on it while watching the account balance drift toward homelessness.

        I'll mentor any part of it for SoC. Watch this link [scratchcomputing.com] for updates.
