CPAN is the public side of Perl. If my manager finds out that a certain module I'm depending on is not up to scratch, he'll mumble something about J2EE. While kwalitee is a fine idea, what we really want is quality. I want code on CPAN to be good the moment it is uploaded and made public, not twenty revisions down the line.
Of course, we can't change CPAN. We fear change. Change may make it wither and die.
So what can we do? I say we use the following argument:
Yes, I love CPAN really. And no, the act of sending bug reports can not be considered "Art"
