[choroba]: Wait a second. Does shutting down search.cpan.org mean the cpan clients can no longer use their urllist?
[usemodperl]: i'm under no obligation to explain myself mommy, and i'm not insisting, just asking a simple question
[Veltro]: So, I'm confused on the matter actually. There are locked-down computers, but they need updates. How does that work? Isn't that contradictary?
[usemodperl]: EXACTLY
[usemodperl]: and the https only situation makes it even worse
[Veltro]: How is that 'exactly'. Locked-down means you don't change or update. So why do you need to access CPAN?
[Corion]: choroba: Heh - I think that's an interesting situation - you can't bootstrap a vanilla Perl then via CPAN, as IO::Socket::SSL is not in core, but also can't be installed from a cpan client. You need a wget/curl with SSL built-in to do that :)
[usemodperl]: i was thinking of forcing something like archive.org to proxy from meta but they seem all https too :-/
[usemodperl]: why are you so obsessed with why i wanna know why i can't download from cpan via http anymore which break all aosrts of stuff you dont need to understand?
[usemodperl]: (Veltro :-)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
