I'd like to share one other PPM quirk, as it took me a few hours to figure out. If the .tar.gz filename does not include the version number, PPM will not actually install the file when downloading from a local repository. I created a local repository on a network drive and copied over "Foo-Bar.ppd" and "Foo-Bar.tar.gz". When I told PPM to install the module it claimed success, but wouldn't actually copy the files to the local machine. Once I renamed the files to "Foo-Bar-0.1.ppd" and "Foo-Bar-0.1.tar.gz" they were installed correctly.
Sorry if this is a rookie mistake, but I didn't see it mentioned here so I thought I would post.
Thanks for writing the article, it was helpful.
