Cleaning up cpantesters

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

This isn't really the best place to ask this, but I've submitted this to various contact addresses on cpantesters over the past year or so, and never received an answer, so I'll ask here in the hopes that someone can answer.

Over the years, I've contributed a number of modules to CPAN that needed to be renamed. In 2007, I renamed a bunch to fit the accepted naming standards such as:

   DateManip renamed to Date-Manip

and I've renamed a couple based on recommendations from the perl-module list, or for various other reasons such as:

   Locale-Messages renamed to Locale-VersionedMessages
   cpantorpm renamed to App-CPANtoRPM

Unfortunately, if you go to my page, all of the old distribution names appear in the "Distribution Summary" box. Is there anything that I can do to clean up whatever data is used to create that list? I'd like to have the list reflect only modules that currently exist if possible?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I believe that if you blow away all of the tarballs for those distributions from your PAUSE account, they'll eventually disappear from Testers.

      Unfortunately, none of the old tarballs are there (or have been for quite a long time... several years at least), so that doesn't appear to be the issue.
