stevieb has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello there my fellow Monks,

I recently published a new distribution to the CPAN (Net::MyIP), but even after a week, it hasn't become available by searching, nor with cpan/cpanm tools. I can see that it is there and even being tested if I go to the link directly (here), but for some reason it's not being indexed.

I sent an email to, but the only response I got was someone wondering whether it was an issue with the distribution itself. Seems pretty unlikely as this is my 59th distribution I've authored and uploaded over the course of a decade-plus. There were no errors, the PAUSE page claimed it uploaded properly, and even the PAUSE logs indicated that.

This distribution is a prerequisite for another one I completed at the same time, but can't upload due to what would be a broken dependency.

Is there anyone here who can help sort this out?
