    NuoDB looks like a really cool project. But if you want Perl programmers to use your driver, it has to be on CPAN. That's the only place 99% of us are ever going to look for Perl code.

    Plenty of CPAN distributions use GitHub for their repositories; Dist::Zilla has a number of tools for automating CPAN releases from GitHub. We can help you get set up on CPAN if you haven't used it before.

    The installation instructions says:

    sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'force install DBI'
    

    This is very bad practice because:

    • this will probably corrupt the packages handled by the system (usually on Linux systems). Instead, suggest to the user to use a local::lib-based environment
    • 'force install' is a bad practice. If DBI doesn't install, there is a good reason that must be fixed, either on the system or in DBI.
