As you can see, CPAN has over 12000 package. Please use common sense in
what modules should be included in Debian. Some criteria _I_ would use
Is it required by some program in Debian.
or Is it something people will most likely need for everyday hacks
and Is it maintained actively
I hope to put together some guidelines (in addition to the guidelines
of each distro) on what to include.
