      hi all...

      if you have a module on cpan in the Apache:: namespace, please take a moment
      to consider cleaning house a bit by removing all but, say, the current
      version and one version back of a particular module.

      you can do this by visiting pause


      please note that this is in no way a mandate. but doing so helps keep
      current CPAN to a reasonable size, and also gives people looking for modules
      less cruft to sift through (my particular issue today :)

      for the record, pause.cpan.org has this to say when you delete a module:

      "Note: to encourage deletions, all of past CPAN glory is collected on

      anyway, below is a list of modules that have more than 2 versions on CPAN at
      the moment. if one of these is yours, please give some thought to whether
      those old versions are really worth making available to the general public.
