Re: Documentation: "How to get a CPAN module into debian"
I am just thinking aloud here again.
What about an extension to CPAN(+?).pm or aptitude that when a user types in
install Module::Name or install libmodule-name-perl
1) the relevant package from the Debian repository
2) if no such package exists then install from CPAN
(or autopackage to .deb and then install)
- Is by default configured to use the cpan.debian.org mirror so people
don't have to think on how to configure CPAN.pm AND you'll get statistics
on what people install in excess to the .debs
- Can be configured to solve the case when there is a .deb in Debian but a newer
version on CPAN.
The cpan.debian.org mirror actually can be a mini-cpan with only
modules that have
at least one successful test report on Debian with a fallback to any module.
ps. No I am not volunteering to write it, even if you find it a good ide :-)
