in reply to Signing your work

Allow or encourage the developers to contribute back to the CPAN. It may not always be appropriate, but there are many things yet to be coded. (This is also a nice draw for potential customers, if it's good stuff: "Our developers are lauded by their peers.")

    I actively encourage our developers to freely contribute to CPAN. It took a bit to lead the PHBs to the notion that this was a good thing (actually not that much, just some memorized pieces of the Cathedral and the Bazaar). As Raymond points out (at least IMO), pick out the pieces that make sense to release Open Source then do it.
