CPAN upload

CPAN offers multiple ways for uploading modules. I only know of 3 ways:

I'm wondering if it's possible to upload a file through scp (ssh). This would be very convenient in the case where SSH keys would be allowed as it wouldn't require users to type in a password (except for the first time that the ssh-aget loads the key).

Anyone knows if it's possible to use scp?


You can use the PAUSE upload page or use anonymous FTP. You can fake various methods that actually use the HTTP upload you find on the PAUSE page.

The Github upload is odd. I wouldn't use that since it makes a tarball out of everything in your repo for that tag. If there is anything else in there that's not in MANIFEST, you're probably distributing too much.

I use my Module::Release module to handle all of the details for me.
