in reply to New CPAN distributions not indexing

That name has already been in use: see https://metacpan.org/release/RAJ/Net-MyIP-0.02. Your release is therefore treated as unauthorized (unless you are co-maint) so it shouldn't be indexed.

    Wow, thanks!

    I have no idea how I could have missed that. Even now when I do a search in metacpan for Net::MyIP, it doesn't return anything.

    Also, no warnings or errors when uploading either.

    Now I know at least. I'll change the name.

    Update: Ahhh, it's in backpan. Sigh. I've emailed modules@ to see if I can claim the namespace.

      Even now when I do a search in metacpan for Net::MyIP, it doesn't return anything.

      For me, https://metacpan.org/search?q=Net%3A%3AMyIP returns 2 results, the second of which is Acme::CPANModules::NewDistributions::202001 which does actually contain a reference to the original Net::MyIP (this is the first time I think I have ever found the Acme::CPANModules::NewDistributions::* namespace useful). So, it's well hidden but the reference is there. I do think it would be good if MetaCPAN's search would return BackPAN results for modules which are an exact match for the search term (and clearly mark them as BackPAN), but it doesn't.

      It would also be useful if the email from PAUSE indicated that it was an unauthorized release but I don't know if it does that?

        It would also be useful if the email from PAUSE indicated that it was an unauthorized release but I don't know if it does that?

        I have an automated system that uploads to PAUSE, which was successful. On the last two uploads, I did them manually to try to see what was happening, but all was successful. Absolutely no warning at all.

        Either way, I'm just going to rename it Addr::MyIP and be done with it.

        I do really appreciate the help!

        I click the link of it, the page is not found now, maybe this is why searching do not offer direct result of it:)
