  • I noticed today though that CPAN.pm is still going to my previous first choice repository to download and compare checksums.
    Are you sure you have the latest version [stonehenge.com]? There's code specifically in there to download the CHECKSUMS file to prevent exactly such an action:
        if ($path =~ m{^authors/id}) { # maybe fetch CHECKSUMS
          my $checksum_path =
            URI->new_abs("CHECKSUMS", $remote_uri)->rel($REMOTE);
          if ($path ne $checksum_path) {
            my_mirror($checksum_path, $checksum_might_be_up_to_date);
          }
        }
    I added this code because I noticed the same behavior you reported when I was offline (at 30,000 feet, actually {grin}). I do recall some preliminary version of minicpan being circulated about... maybe you picked that up from somewhere.
