stevieb has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Why can I see Business::ISP at but not

It's an old, outdated distribution, but I've always wondered why it doesn't show up at meta.

    Business::ISP::Billing points to which explains :)

    Missing module ? - why can I not find a specific module? Is it in the index?

    MetaCPAN uses the PAUSE generated 02packages.details.txt file. If it's not in there, then the module author will need to fix this. (Authors are usually emailed about this when they upload a distribution).

    I can see XXX on but not on MetaCPAN has evolved to support edge cases or have exceptions but as the code is not public we are unable to tell you what they are doing.

    You module doesnt seem to be in the index

    $ cpanm --showdeps Business::ISP::Billing ! Finding Business::ISP::Billing on cpanmetadb failed. ! Finding Business::ISP::Billing () on mirror fail +ed. ! Couldn't find module or a distribution Business::ISP::Billing

    Why is your module not indexed by the pause indexer? IIRC its probably related to the version...
