What makes PPMs appear on ActiveState?by jplindstrom (Monsignor)
|on Nov 09, 2004 at 18:51 UTC||Need Help??|
jplindstrom has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Regarding this comment about the PAR ActiveState PPM being a little dated, does anyone know the procedure to get a CPAN module to appear in ActiveState's PPM repository?
I always thought it was just a matter of getting the module to build successfully and pass it's tests, and everything else would just, well, work.
Can anyone confirm this, or give me a hint on how it actually works?
Thanks for the advice given below, but this is in regard to an existing module (Win32::GUI) which already has an old PPM in the repository. It's a real problem that most people get the obsolete version, so when a newer version becomes available on CPAN it would be nice to get the ActiveState repository updated.
