  • Commented on S.C.O. cloning project - progress report
    It's still not clear to me why search.cpan.org doesnt become like (or be replaced by) something more community driven like metacpan.org That cpan's search function isn't the recommended place to browse cpan doesn't help perl's image (or help newbies)...
