As someone who frequently uses http://prlmnks.org, first of all, thank you. It's a very practical and useful service you're providing. If you want to continue to host the service, bravo.
As for handing over the code to the community, I certainly recommend SourceForge for the whole of the project (including any related HTML or what-not). I would shy away from adding a CPAN module though, as your service is fairly specific to PerlMonks and doesn't contain (as far as I can tell) components that would want to run apart from the rest of the application.
There are a couple things you should know before you publish your project, though:
- As soon as you go open source, all sorts of people are going to expect you to make bug fixes, and sometimes they can be very demanding
- It may be very difficult to get folks to help out beyond just fixing a little bug here and there
I don't mean to sound negative. It's just a good idea to know what's coming. It's helpful to have a little patience with the users out there who lack it.
