CPANdeps is also moving
In fact, by the time you read this it will have moved to its new home. The move is for the same reasons as laid out in my recent post about cpXXXan - contention for disk access slowing things down, and not enough memory for the database on the old hardware. It's now running on its own dedicated hardware and should be considerably faster.
Please let me know, however, if you find anything that I broke in the move!
