( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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.

    holli is about to take the first hit since a month and this weed is strong shit. Should my head explode, someone call 911.
    [ambrus]: And even when I traveled on a big plane for a long flight, it had 3 seats, then corridor, then 4 seats, then corridor, then 3 seats, so less than half of the people sit between two other dudes.
