Yeah, and I'm using it almost daily.

I think that would be really great.
We've discussed this several times, there were some starts, but
nothing really came out of it so far ...

My other wishlist items (forward-patch and forward-bug) have already
been fulfilled by Alessandro :)
Of course if you feel like extending them a bit that would also be
nice (there should be some mails on the mailing list, e.g. uploading
patches to CPAN via the REST interface instead of via email).

But the Debian <-> CPAN mapping is probably the most valuable

Another source for ideas is
I guess most stuff there is packaging related, but maybe you find
something you're interested in. Help with dh-make-perl and PET{,2} is
always needed, for example.

Thanks again!
