[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? :-)
[choroba]: why do you need to access metacpan via http?
[usemodperl]: stop asking why, just say how
usemodperl pulls teeth...
[usemodperl]: change the world? you mean BREAK THE WEB? we will regret this once google starts pulling certs for cursing or something...

[Corion]: usemodperl: Naah, you're just being unreasonable. It's not hard to download https URLs, and we've shown you ways to avoid downloading at all, and ways to keep downloading via http possible. You reject both.
