CPANPLUS will absolutely be in 5.10. Rafael, the pumpking, has
a feature freeze. He is committed to make a release happen in
Of course, I expect introducing a new major version will not be
hassle-free - so maybe the best way out is to start working on getting
CPANPLUS rolling as an independent package, which can later disappear.
In speaking with Jos, I put the same question to him. He thought that
having CPANPLUS in debian would be good because it will take while
for perl 5.10 to stabilize. This means there is a lag from 5.10 to
lenny/sid and a lag from lenny/sid to either lenny or etch, or
whatever is stable. So he thought it might be good to package
CPANPLUS, and as Gunnar says, we can just remove it once, or when, it
becomes a permanent feature of the standard perl distribution.
