• Commented on Djet
    What is this for? Why would we want to use it? What are the use cases?...
  • Commented on My CPAN Cleaning, Day 2457025.500000
    For the ubergit, maybe git got is what you're looking for? I haven't used it myself....
  • Commented on Spam on CPAN
    I filed a bug against the module's issue tracker. I don't think the author *intended* this to be spam, but it doesn't seem to serve much of a purpose....
  • Commented on Creating an MMORPG in Perl
    Yes, please keep blogging about this....
  • Commented on Classify your RT tickets on CPAN Day!
    This list could use a little curation. SVK has been long dead. Math-Pari is completely insane, though I guess some people still use it. Personally, I stay far aware and use the GMP bindings instead. As for Tk, I guess...
  • Commented on Are conference speakers compensated
    [Side note: Please link nouns like "compensation for conference speakers" rather than "wrote" ;)] Sawyer, this is all very interesting and worth reading, but I think you totally misunderstood what the "dirty secret" was in brian's post. It wasn't anything...
  • Commented on Are Abilities Roles?
    Doh, I missed that init_arg bit. Nonetheless, my point about whether you'd instantiate the base class stands. If the answer is no, there's no point in having it be a class at all....
  • Commented on Are Abilities Roles?
    What is the purpose of making Ability a class in this design? If you never plan to instantiate it, then it should be role. Also, with your current design I could write Strength->new( name => 'Wisdom' ). That makes no...
  • Commented on I hate Dist::Zilla and missing Makefile.PL
    Why do you need a Makefile.PL or Build.PL in a repo? If it's a pure Perl module you can do everything you need to simply by running prove. For my XS modules I always do add a minimal Makefile.PL or...

    It's not spam, and nothing is faked. It's appears to be a rather ham-fisted attempt to reserve a top-level namespace.

  • Jean-Damien Durand commented on Spam on CPAN

    Google on the author's name you will find he even attended to lpw2013. This is a "trial" CPAN module, IMHO & as says Dave.

  • kaare commented on Djet

    Well, it's a CMS and does what CMS'es do. Only better than most IMHO.

    For now I would only recommend the use of Djet for the adventurous and skilled Perl developer.

    App::GitGot looks interesting, but I couldn't get it to install. Something with Mouse went wrong, and as much as it sucks to say it, I don't bother fixing anything when it's a Moose or Moose variant problem. I don't even investigate. It would take me less time to write my own tool.

  • Gabor Szabo commented on Djet

    Great! Can you link to the site(s) that are using it?
    Will you create a web-site for Djet?
