[marto]: run your own mirror minicpan
[marto]: or just fatpack/package your apps
[Corion]: usemodperl: No. I think your approach to "downloading modules" is horribly misguided. I recommend you use the standard tools, and/or move your own tools to standard interfaces. Or maybe just set up your own plaintext mirror if that's what you need.
[Corion]: usemodperl: If your "audience" runs old, locked-down computers that can connect to the outside world, they shouldn't install random stuff from CPAN. Especially, as many modules on CPAN don't work with 5.005_004 anymore.
[usemodperl]: downloading modules is wrong? oh dear...
[usemodperl]: just answer my question without judging me or my technique, if that's possible around here anymore, sheesh
[Corion]: usemodperl: You should be well aware of the ways to make your approach still work, even if it is to set up your own proxy that strips HTTPS. It shouldn't be hard for somebody with your acumen.
[Corion]: Unless you just want to vent your frustration about how others don't provide for your whims. That's sometimes necessary. There, there.
[usemodperl]: so to answer my question, no http at cpan, and all rationalized too, thanks
[marto]: this 'safe space' thing you have going on seems just like wanting to whine without anyone replying

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
