Hello monks,

CPAN is a house for many of us and we are in charge to keep it cleen.

See the original request:

    My development releases have now been scheduled for deletion...not that they will make a huge difference in the big scheme of thing but every little helps I guess...

    Thanks for sharing.

      In the Netherlands we have "Alle kleine beetjes helpen." (all small bits add up to the larger goal). I removed 4.4 Mb.

      I keep the last one and the one before to enable to diff option in metacpan.

      Thanks for pushing it to PM. I also got this on IRC.

      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    I did some totaling of numbers in CPAN/BackPAN indices so you can get a better picture.

    I make it a habit to delete the previous release when I upload a new one. All of my releases have the latest and at most one older version - the rest are on BackPAN.
