In recent weeks http://search.cpan.org has been frequently unreliable including but not limited to 503 responses or no response at all. Could we update the relevant shortcuts to link to http://search.mcpan.org. For the unaware What shortcuts can I use for linking to other information? lists which shortcuts currently link to cpan.org. I believe ambrus has already provided a patch for this. Thanks ambrus.
Update: typo fixes.
Update 31/07/2014: www.cpan.org are now using metacpan.org for the search on the homepage, rather than search.cpan.org.
