in thread What can bring the excitement back to Perl?

It's a common misconception what CPAN is. CPAN is a distributed archive where users may store perl-related resources for public use. Additionaly there's a little bit of infrastructure around it (a permission system for module namespaces etc.)

Anything else is just an add-on around the core CPAN. is just a useful view at CPAN, but it must not be the only one . In fact, there's also kobesearch providing an alternative view. There you find a listing of PPM packages for Win32 for every distribution.

And it's quite easy to provide an additional view to CPAN. Recently I wrote the CPAN Testers Matrix because I was not satisfied with the test report presentation on Currently it's ennobled by being linked from both and kobesearch.

I happen also to like the cpanratings. It's usually the first page I am reading each morning.

    Actually I have a patched version of the module that generates the CPAN Testers gui. Unfortunately it has not yet been installed on the production server.

    It can be seen here CPAN Testers at szabgab with the extra part being here: stats

    It also has a cross reference of successful reports like this one ACME::Error
