in reply to Seven habits of highly careful coders

"...We usually answer. “That is up to you to figure out”
Speaking as a person who always wants to improve, I would raise this simple point:
  1. The person who is asking you wants to be a better coder.
  2. You have information that will make him a better coder.
  3. Your irritation level will likely decrease if his code is better.
  4. His frustration level will likely decrease if his code is better
  5. Your workplace needs better coders.
  6. The universe in general needs better code.
  7. You gain nothing by withholding this information and much by passing it on.

[marto]: configure whatever client you use to use a repositry you like?
[Corion]: usemodperl: Why would you want HTTP there? If you want/need to use wget without SSL libraries, set www.cpan.org (or whatever) as your uplink?
[marto]: I suspect more trolling...
[usemodperl]: Because the audience for my apps have old, locked down versions of perl that can't install modules or update perl and now all that is horribly broken without HTTP. Of course I can go outside Perl anytime but that impacts portability
[usemodperl]: I can find cpan mirrors on http but not with plain files, only tar.gz, does something like meta exist on http?
[marto]: run your own mirror minicpan
