I'm not sure what you want to point out with that link. I know there are scripts there, but that doesn't change my opinion that it's not the best space for scripts to begin with. HTML::Template can also be found on freshmeat. Not the best place IMHO.

    Where do you think is a good place for fairly short scripts (as opposed to large "apps" that might merit their own google-code/freshmeat/whatever)?

      Most scripts can benefit from putting the functionality within a module. In that case, you're distributing the module and the script comes along with it. cpan, pod2html, and many others most people take for granted fall into this category.

      Benefits include:

      • Easier to test because you're testing a module
      • Easier to reuse in many scripts
      • Easier to subclass for other people

      My criteria for good software:
      1. Does it work?
      2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

      If scripts are too small for sourceforge, it's probably a quick hack to perform task X. Cool Uses For Perl looks like a good place, or Snippets.
