in reply to RFC: Private CPAN In A Box

I guess a private CPAN might be useful in a network of disparate systems. I'm fortunate to not work in such an environment. The only time I download something from CPAN is when I'm building a .deb from it. This activity would take place on a dev server and never on a production server. The advantage of using the system's native packaging is that you can set up dependencies on things that aren't CPAN modules and deployment is a breeze.

I'm not suggesting your proposal is a bad idea - just not something I'd use.

[Eily]: wow, don't say that in Nancy LanX :P
[erix]: maybe you used the car routes, I used the walking routes
[Eily]: there's a rivalry between the two cities, so defining one in terms of the other might not be well received
[Eily]: erix well I did click on the walking icon
LanX giggles!
[LanX]: Eily I'm duing this constantly with people from rival cities ...MUCHO fun!
[Eily]: The best example of that is the TGV, they couldn't decide who would get it so it's in the middle of nowhere halfway between the two
[LanX]: Eily: that rings a bell
[erix]: interesting difference, I suppose they use different data/routes (and shorter seems better, no?)
[LanX]: Montabaur station
