in reply to Take Back Your Modules!

One way to help, which can be useful to authors, other comaintainers and everyone interested in the module(s) is to have a publicly hosted version control repository.

This way, you have a trunk, which is the latest pre-release version of your module; tags trees for your released versions and branches trees for development and major projects. I recommend granting read access to all, but restricting commits to known users via htpasswd.

I have recently set one up for my CPAN modules - mine and comaint. I also have some vapourware modules in there. I am willing to include other modules in there, by request.

If any monks want to use it, drop me a /msg.

You can always set up an SVK mirror for developing modules and patches locally - this is recommended.

      Why (compared to your prevous host)?
        My previous host was either my own Subversion box, or svn.perl.org. My own box isn't nearly as snazzy and featureful as Google, and svn.perl.org requires me to bug Robrt and Ask for stuff if I need changes, and I'd rather not. I only use that for stuff that is core Perl or nearly so, like Mech.
