Submit to CPAN? Re: Reinventing Dice...

in reply to Reinventing Dice...

Maybe this should be a meditation? I've checked on CPAN and discovered that maybe I didn't need to be worried about reinventing the wheel, as no Dice (or Die) modules have been submitted there.

Is it worth submitting this there? I'm not too clear on the how-to etc., but I can always RTFM on, though other pointers gratefully received.

But the bigger question is should I? I'm not too worried about replicating functionality in Dice::Dice because it is so different a problem area it's looking at, but would it be common practise to check with the author of RPG::Dice (Syrkres) before submitting?

Update: Thanks Ovid, I've now read the FAQ and requested a PAUSE id! I think that when it comes to actually preparing a distribution a question or 2 to Perlmonks might be in order..

    If you wish to submit modules to the CPAN, read through their module submission FAQ. The process is fairly simple: request a PAUSE ID. Once you're received that, you can upload your module and you'll also need to apply for your name space. In uploading a module, please use H2XS to create it. Make sure that you write tests for the module and create a proper bundle. "make dist" will do that for you. If you follow all of those steps, you will have a professional distribution that Perl programmers will appreciate.
