[usemodperl]: yea but http only has tar.gz, i wanna download modules with core perl, but http seems to make it impossible, that's my only question, how to find http mirrors like meta, or how to do it with core perl, but options now seem totally broken (on purpose :-(
marto wanders off
[usemodperl]: Corion it's really not misguided, it's the only way, to do something... wonderful IMHO
[Corion]: usemodperl: Why don't you set up your own (http-only) CPAN mirror? Or just fatpack your scripts? I wonder what problem you're trying to solve here.
[usemodperl]: don't worry about that, it's really cool, i promise!
[Corion]: usemodperl: Well, if the world changes and makes your "wonderful" approach not work anymore, you can either change your approach, or change the world. You seem to want to change others instead.
[usemodperl]: no dude i'm just asking how to access meta via http and you are getting defensive for some reason (did you turn off http at meta? :-)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
