OK, so the answer to the first one is that CPANPLUS assumes a policy of "reload after one day" instead of CPAN.pm's "reload after a user-specifiable period of time". That makes sense, but wasn't documented yet.

As for the second, no. I'm talking about the CPAN mirror setting, like getting the CPAN from http://www.cpan.org/ when I'm online, or getting it from my file:///Users/merlyn/CPAN/ when I'm offline. In CPAN.pm, that's a simple "o conf urllist unshift BLAH". But there appears to be only a very truncated list of settings in CPANPLUS (so far?), and "current CPAN" is not one of them.

It has nothing to do with FTP proxy settings.

    True, the reload time is not documented as far as I know. It will be added to the FAQ.

    With the mirror settings, the second FAQ point for a local site is closer to what you want. If the site you list first isn't found, it will fall back to the second site. Which means you could probably get what you want by listing your local archive as the second site on your list.

    But I see you have sent mail to the list, which is probably best for discussing features in detail (I just include this reply for anyone else reading the thread).
