"I'm guessing we need a couple utilities at the perl infrastructure level: One to "fork" a cpan dist in to github (for dists that aren't on github, but L4P already is), and then an update to cpan/cpanm to get it to prefer where to get a specific dist from."

First, create the repository on your Github. I created one called simply "log4perl", then:

cpan -g Log::Log4perl tar -xzvf Log-Log4perl-1.49.tar.gz cd Log-Log4perl-1.49 git init git add . git remote add origin +t git push -u origin master

Now you've make a fork of the 1.49 version of the distribution on your own Github.

Now, when you want to install with cpanm:

cd c:\users\steveb\repos git clone cd log4perl cpanm .

Or, do a make dist in your repository, add the newly created tarball into the repo and do a push, then:

cpanm +ar.gz

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
