Seems reasonable to me, although I don't know if there are already any relatively standard sources of Perl RPMs.

Hi Alberto,

Do you plan to import the existing RPMs and try to make a single repository for these or is this a whole new infrastructure to generate RPMs?

How do you see this automating and scaling to the number of modules on CPAN?

Do you plan to build a small core of modules akin to Task::Kensho or do you see this being a whole CPAN thing?

This is a great idea, but unless it scales sideways then it could end up being another place that packages go to languish and die.

It might be that you end up with everything on CPAN packaged at which point you only have to deal with updates and new versions. The problem would be getting over the hurdle.

Good luck with your application!


Ah crap, that should have been Jozef not Alberto..

Hi idn,

the project is about indexing, not packaging. Simply allowing to see which Perl module version is (or isn't) in which rpm-based distribution.
