in reply to From test harness to CPAN

I'm not convinced that sabermetrics is a supplanted terminology -- the links that you provided actually make use of the term, although since its origins are in baseball that may explain why other sports want a different terminology. And, of course, there already exists Baseball-Sabermetrics.

Having essentially two top-level names (Algorithm::SportsAnalytics::TheModuleName) strikes me as wasteful in space. I'd go to the module-authors list and suggest a single top name like SportsAnalytics and see how it flies.

If SportsAnalytics doesn't work, then maybe an offshoot of Statistics (e.g., Statistics::Baseball::Analytics)?

    Presumably some of these algorithms would be useful for things that aren't sports - competitive pigeon breeding, for example, or board games.

    Just as an FYI, I'm asking for Sport as a top name. The Namespace request form doesn't give me great hope that I'll be successful. Getting from my code above, parsed through Grandfather's suggestions, to something I could post and think was reasonable was an interesting journey.
