in reply to search.cpan.org comments/discussion

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...

You said you wanted to be around when I made a mistake; well, this could be it, sweetheart.

    Yes, a rating/poll would be very cool. Eg:

    261 people have rated this module. Average rating 4.2 out of 5

    We could eschew the standard stars ratings and award camels instead!
