in reply to [OT] Providing a Windows ppm repo at minimal cost

I commend your worthy intentions, especially in making PPM's available that aren't available or up-to-date on the ActiveState repository.
And as a Scotsman, I also commend your correct spelling of "tightarse" - and frugality is indeed a virtue :)
Sorry I can't provide any pointers for your hosting question - one thing that would be nice (and may already exist) is an up-to-date list of PPM repositories.

    Thank you !! That was, of course, my major concern. Woulder been nice if you'd also acknowledged that I had (correctly) referred to the inhabitants of Scotland as "Scots" rather than "Scotch people" ... it's a subtlety that's often completely overlooked "down under".
    I am, of course, being deliberately (and ridiculously) flippant :-)

    Quite by chance, I stumbled upon this a few days back (from ActivePerl's lib/PPM/Repositories.pm) which may well be the best such list going around:
    our %Repositories = ( bioperl => { location => 'http://bioperl.org/DIST/', Notes => 'BioPerl - Regular Releases', PerlV => [ 5.8, '5.10' ], }, 'bioperl-rc' => { location => 'http://bioperl.org/DIST/RC/', Notes => 'BioPerl - Releases Candidates', PerlV => [ 5.8, '5.10' ], }, bribes => { location => 'http://www.bribes.org/perl/ppm/', Notes => 'Bribes de Perl', PerlV => [ 5.6, 5.8, '5.10', 5.12 ], }, gtk2 => { location => 'http://www.lostmind.de/gtk2-perl/ppm/', Notes => 'gtk2-perl bindings (check also \'voltar\' reposit +ory)', }, 'gtk2-old' => { location => 'http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net/win32/ppm/', Notes => 'Old "official" Gtk2 repository', }, log4perl => { location => 'http://log4perl.sourceforge.net/ppm', Notes => 'log4perl (pure perl)', PerlV => [ ], PerlO => ['perl'], }, roth => { location => 'http://www.roth.net/perl/packages/', Notes => 'Dave Roth\'s modules', PerlV => [ 5.6, 5.8 ], }, 'tcool-ppm3' => { location => 'http://ppm.tcool.org/server/ppmserver.cgi?urn:PPM +Server', Type => 'PPMServer', Notes => 'Kenichi Ishigaki\'s repository (PPM3))', }, tcool => { location => 'http://ppm.tcool.org/archives/', Notes => 'Kenichi Ishigaki\'s repository (PPM4)', }, trouchelle58 => { location => 'http://trouchelle.com/ppm/', Notes => 'Trouchelle: 5.8', }, trouchelle510 => { location => 'http://trouchelle.com/ppm10/', Notes => 'Trouchelle: 5.10', PerlV => [ '5.10' ], }, trouchelle512 => { location => 'http://trouchelle.com/ppm12/', Notes => 'Trouchelle: 5.12', PerlV => [ 5.12 ], }, 'uwinnipeg56-ppm3' => { location => 'http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/cgi-bin/ppmserver?ur +n:/PPMServer', Type => 'PPMServer', Notes => 'University of Winnipeg: 5.6 (PPM3)', PerlV => [ 5.6 ], }, uwinnipeg56 => { location => 'http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppmpackages', Notes => 'University of Winnipeg: 5.6', PerlV => [ 5.6 ], }, 'uwinnipeg58-ppm3' => { location => 'http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/cgi-bin/ppmserver?ur +n:/PPMServer58', Type => 'PPMServer', Notes => 'University of Winnipeg: 5.8 (PPM3)', }, uwinnipeg58 => { location => 'http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms', Notes => 'University of Winnipeg: 5.8 (PPM4)', }, uwinnipeg510 => { location => 'http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/PPMPackages/10xx/', Notes => 'University of Winnipeg: 5.10', PerlV => [ '5.10' ], }, uwinnipeg512 => { location => 'http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/PPMPackages/12xx/', Notes => 'University of Winnipeg: 5.12', PerlV => [ 5.12 ], }, voltar => { location => 'http://voltar.org/active/5.8/', Notes => 'Paul Miller\'s Games::RolePlay::MapGen and Gtk2 r +epository', }, wxperl => { location => 'http://www.wxperl.co.uk/repository', Notes => 'wxPerl modules', PerlV => [ 5.8, '5.10', 5.12 ], }, );
