Perl Software Directory on PM

Maybe this sounds like a crazy idea, but much like the tutorials section, I think would be awesome if PM could become a reference for people to list their Perl project here and make PM some sort of an authoritative Perl software directory, regardless if the software is Open Source or not, as long as it written in Perl. Of course, many would argue that the CPAN is such a directory bu many people see CPAN only for libs and extensions. Since PM has anonymous access, it could very well serve as a simple directory for people looking for software written in Perl.

      Not at all. A formal Perl only software directory, that people can post their app project there and catalog it accordingly.

        Couldn't you just list your projects in your User page? I see no reason for PM to host it when you probably have it on CPAN, Github, or somewhere else already.
