Yes :) I did know I have to delete bad versions and I deleted v0.01 of my Dancer plugin, but is it practise to only keep the latest version on CPAN? I will then delete all my old dists

    I don't know that deleting old versions is necessary, especially if a backward-breaking incompatibility has been added. :-)

    I read a note somewhere on PAUSE about how "CPAN is getting large, please delete old versions - they will be on backpan" ( Cant seem to find it anywhere now ).

    I have also noticed that Google sometimes shows the older module above the later version - so its possible that a visitor from Google ends up on an older version of the module.

    I generally remove all old modules ( other than the previous one ) - The exception of course is when I stop providing backward compatibility.

    There seem to be other reasons for removing older versions which I don't really subscribe to.
