in reply to RubyForge vs CPAN: Is Perl's Killer Feature Being Usurped?

Dont forget that the CPAN librarian (Jarkko) has long encouraged other languages to follow his example. What i found interesting about the article was the user counts. Does RubyForge require users to be registered to download code? If so then it would explain the difference in number of users.

    Nope - but there are forums and some other stuff that are better when registered. Really RF is closer to SourceForge than it is to CPAN in many ways, with Gems doing a chunk of the long-list-o-stuff the various interpretations of CPAN do.
