in thread A Vision for Easy Web Application Deployment for Perl

You're banging your head against a brick wall, I'm afraid. The Perl community doesn't appear to care less when PHP leaps ahead in popularity with web developers. See "What sets Perl Back" which I posted in Meditations a couple of weeks ago. CPAN is Perl's killer app and also it's Achilles heel. CPAN.pm and CPANPLUS.pm have a long way to go before they can be called end-user apps. You have to ask why there is only one book on Perl and MySQL (Dubois) and why it wasn't reissued - because there wasn't enough interest in the first edition. The book's brilliant but a lot of the Perl community seem to think web development is beneath them.

    I'm optimistic. We've seen CPAN continue to evolve with cpanratings, annocpan and cpanratings all appearing somewhat recently. I think adding an another alternate, specialized view is a realistic and feasible project, considering the tools need to build it mostly already exist. It's not as if permission is required to undertake such a project, but collaborators, supporters and known potential users are always nice...
