We made some very good progress on MetaCPAN at this year's QA Hackathon in Rugby. The whole post can be found here.
The is_success() method which HTTP::Response provides is not necessarily a full indicator of success. This has bitten me before, so I thought it was worth writing about. Perhaps it may save you some heartache down the line.
I got co-maint on Business::PayPal::API about 3 years ago in order to patch one line that was throwing a warning. The previous release had been 2 years prior to that. So it's fair to say that this module has not lately been on a rapid release cycle. It's still in use, though, and lately there has been some activity on rt.cpan.org related to it. So, I finally took an evening to sit down and try to cut a new release.

If you use a GeoIP database, you're probably familiar with MaxMind's MMDB format.
At MaxMind, we created the MMDB format because we needed a format that was very fast and highly portable. MMDB comes with supported readers in many languages. In this blog post, we'll use Perl modules to create an MMDB file which contains an access list of IP addresses. This kind of database could be used when allowing access to a VPN or a hosted application.
Writing your own commify function may well be right up there with writing your own web framework or templating system. Most of us have done it and it probably wasn't worth the effort. Enter CLDR::Number. (I should note here that it's not obvious from the name that this module will commify for you -- that's one of the reasons I'm writing this up.)
