brian d foy has been experimenting with crowd-funding for open source projects, so I approached him about running a campaign for Pinto. I made a short video and we launched the campaign on Crowdtilt (which happens to be Perl shop). I'd really appreciate if you could help spread the word!
Here's the campaign: http://tinyurl.com/gopinto
Pinto is a robust application for creating and managing custom repositories of Perl modules. You can use any combination of CPAN modules and private modules. And the repository works seamlessly with installer clients like cpan and cpanm.
When you build up your system from a Pinto repository, you'll get exactly the modules you want and the versions you want -- every time. Pinto also has some novel tools for helping you manage upgrades to your dependencies
The funds of the Crowdtilt campaign will be used to enhance Pinto to fetch specific versions of CPAN modules (without you having to know which distribution they came from). That will make is easy to build up a repository that contains all the modules needed for your legacy environment.
