I'm excited about a PM-inspired 'reputation' or 'XP' attached to every CPAN module (proposed by tjh
above) with or w/o full-blown discussion! Consider some of the benefits:
- allow everyone to promote their fav modules
- inspire mod owners to improve their work for (documented, statistical) reward and recognition
- provide an indicator of the quality/usability of each mod for those unfamiliar w/ them
- provide a 'roadmap' for those wishing to learn new modules (highest to lowest reputation)
- provide a reference for CPAN admins if pruning decisions ever become necessary
Others surely can think of more...
May the Source be with you.
You said you wanted to be around when I made a mistake; well, this could be it, sweetheart.
