  • I wonder ... can't we lock some name spaces on CPAN, so that not everybody can update reserved module names?

    I know it is a bit against the free-for-all culture that has been been the driving factor behind CPAN. but, be real, we should take care to make the pollution of CPAN less obvious ;-)

    I'm not talking about rigorous measures here, we need to make sure CPAN stays open and free for non critical namespaces. But we should also have a more restricted access policy to some Perl core name spaces. Maybe modelled after the way a registered name space is granted for the moment - by using the mailing list ...

    Just my 5€ cents ...
