Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Is there a list somewhere of CPAN modules that get broken by the slow painful drip of backward incompatible changes to the perl interpreter? I can see the damage by visiting CPAN and clicking Testers on broken modules but wonder if someone has scraped that all together into a Wall of Shame. I'm fixing broken orphaned modules locally with no way help fix the official and CPAN is in an advanced state of decay. What if CPAN put orphaned modules on a wiki or something so we could all just fix the thing and move on? Imagine how fast the 1/2 of CPAN that is probably broken would be fixed!
