Improved PPM repository
- I thought I would let you all know that we just put the first release of
our much extended PPM repository online. Instead of around 100 modules,
we have now about 1000. You'll find the current list here:
This list includes all CPAN modules that were successfully completing
their own testsuite on at least one of the ActivePerl supported platforms
(Windows, Linux or Solaris). We did however remove all modules with
restrictive licensing conditions (e.g. ones disallowing CD redistribution
etc.). Some modules are also missing because they don't specify their own
prerequisites in their Makefile.PL correctly. We hope to gradually
achieve even greater CPAN coverage!
To use the new repository, you need to upgrade to ActivePerl build 623.
PS: Thanks to Brian for automating most of the repository maintenance
tasks and to Murray for enhancing PPM so that it efficiently deals with
ActivePerl mailing list
