Several times, I have found myself asking the fine people here
at PM what modules they might recommend for this or that. It
got me thinking that maybe there ought to be some sort of rating
system on CPAN or on a related site. At the very least, there
could be a number of downloads stat to tell use how popular
something is. I might even look to Freshmeat's stat algorithms
as an example, but what I would really like to see is a system
where people who have actually used a module rate its worth. I
have searched for such a site with no success. Is there one,
or if not, would you, the esteemed members of PM, appreciate
a site or service that incorporates this?
Lets face it, there are over 6,000 modules there, and I for one
would love to search on "foo" and sort by "reputation" (to borrow
a PM phrase).
I admit it, I am Paco.
