in reply to The App:: namespace? Sharing a webapp on CPAN

I for one am against putting apps in CPAN (and yeah, don't want to start a flame here, I know it's not a popular stance ;-). I believe Sourceforge or Google code might be great for applications. Freshmeat it and there you go.

I don't go to CPAN for complete applications and vice versa, I don't scan freshmeat for modules.

      I'm not sure what you want to point out with that link. I know there are scripts there, but that doesn't change my opinion that it's not the best space for scripts to begin with. HTML::Template can also be found on freshmeat. Not the best place IMHO.

        Where do you think is a good place for fairly short scripts (as opposed to large "apps" that might merit their own google-code/freshmeat/whatever)?

      I should also mention that the, "script" isn't a small guy, it's between 65,000 and 85,000 LOC, with > 100 template files and a few other supporting things.

    I'm all for start putting apps on CPAN. Let's start something new!

    We don't search apps on CPAN *because* there are hardly any. CPAN can offer advantages over freshmeat / sf.net: we know the apps are Perl-based, users can do automatic installation, mirroring ability, etc.

    I suggest a more detailed namespace though, e.g. App::Web:: or Webapp:: for all webapps, App::Web::{Forum,CMS,...}. But this probably will happen naturally when the App:: namespace starts to be crowdly populated.
