Some things are known about the name:
- It won't contain the word CPAN (Andreas did offer
the use of CPAN.pm provided there was some backwards
compatibility, but many people feel the name is
- It will be a top-level name (to protest top-level
names in general, talk to p5p not me ;)
The meaning it will attempt to capture is beyond the scope
of the Net:: modules. More time is probably spent
determining if you have the Net:: modules than using
them... At any rate, CPANPLUS is aimed more at
module management than just fetching.
/me is staying out of this entire quagmire of naming
and will just call it CPANPLUS until it gets another
Ps. To comment on sauoq's post: CPANPLUS does allow
you to fetch modules from your local file system. I
can't say about CPAN.pm since I don't use it.
