  • Just remember to leave at least 1 old version - for the benefit of users that cannot readily upgrade. I think here especially of FreeBSD ports users, who are stuck with the old version until the port's maintainer gets the port updated... /Lars
    • Hi Lars,

      Intersting point but the definition of old version is a bit vague :)

      In the comments on bdfoy's journal the argument was that it is a good idea to keep at least one old version for the use of the search.cpan.org tools eg. diff.

      But I think you point raises a different problem - and without knowing I guess BACKPAN is the solution.

      Is FreeBSD ports based on CPAN mirrors? if so could BACKPAN be added as a last resort mirror?
