in thread Perl 5.18 RC2 has been released

I don't know where the deprecation of CPANPLUS comes from, but I think it just hasn't seen much maintenance and carries quite some overhead in term of modules. Of course, CPANPLUS will stay available through the CPAN.

Hmm, I kind of think that info might be important/interesting

Nothing here or todo.pod, and I think I found it:) Taking CPANPLUS out of core - , [Round 2] Taking CPANPLUS out of core - and, and How do we know when a CORE module is deprecated? | chris fedde []

It appears somehow they've determined that "CPANPLUS did not replace as the CPAN client of choice" so out of the core it goes :)

Along with the above, a reading of perlpolicy made it click for me :) I think a link to , one of

L<perlpolicy> L<perlpolicy/Terminology> L<perlpolicy/deprecated>
for the perldelta deprecation section would be useful -- cross reference and all that :)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
