Update on the licenses and the repository links on CPAN
Today I checked the 1,000 most recently uploaded modules again:
|Date||Has license||Has repository link|
It's a nice improvement, but remember these are the 1,000 most recent uploads. The percantages would be a lot lower if we looked at all the packages currently on CPAN.
I think both of these numbers should be around 99.7%.
If you'd like to check your module, you can use the
metacpan_meta.pl 1000 PAUSEID command with you PAUSEID after installing MetaCPAN::Clients. That will show the 1000 most recent upload for the given PAUSEID. Even if some of them were 5 years ago. It will also show the list of offending distributions.
ps. I just checked my own PAUSEID and it tells me 6 packages are missing their license and 11 are missing their repository out of the 62 I have on CPAN. Let's see if I can improve.
p2. I went through the list. Deleted two of the modules from CPAN as they were not relevant any more, and added the above information to most of the others. I have not released them as they don't have any other changes, but the next time I release them they will alrady come with the updated META files.
