in reply to CPAN not indexing?

Posting here is less useful than if you had emailed someone. I know it can be daunting to figure out who to email sometimes, but in this case even {cpan,webmaster,ask} at would have helped.

Vaguely related: (and infrastructure bits are often noted on the Perl NOC Log.

    I waited three days before posting here. I posted here because over half the major players in Perl are here at least once a week. I figured I wasn't the first person to notice it, so someone would be able to tell me what had happened.

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
      I don't come here a lot, so apologies for the belated reply. :-)

      It's fine to post here, obviously. I was just trying to point out that emailing the maintainers of the thing you think is broken is more likely to get attention.

      It's frustrating finding out that something you look after hasn't been working for a minute, an hour a day and doubly so when you find out that other people knew, spent time talking about it but didn't bother to tell you.
