Not sure if this should be just redirected to the Janitors or if anyone even cares ... but:
The form at the bottom of the CPAN nodelet is aimed at 'http://search.cpan.org/search' which still gets one to the MCPAN site due to the external re-direct (as I understand it). However, there is constantly a warning in browsers like Google Chrome and Chromium about an insecure site being targeted from the secure site. Not a huge deal I guess, but I was wondering if it would be worth it to simply change that form to point to MCPAN directly. Again, not a huge deal, and I understand that it might be pretty low priority...
Addendum and Thanks!
This item has been taken care of... Thanks much to the folk that maintain this site!
...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...
A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...
