A good time to get a consensus here before the name is enshrined in
too many places :)

Thinking out aloud:

0) I don't care alot how we name this subteam.
1) I don't particularly like the term "project" (in general, as it's
   so vague).
2) I'm not very excited about "modules".
3) Historically, the Debian Perl Group packaged only modules.
4) Except that we actually packaged CPAN distributions which contain
5) Nowadays we still mostly packages modules-in-CPAN-distributions,
   and a couple of "apps" (does anyone remember the split into
   $something and "apps" back in SVN? Where "apps" was empty.), [0]
   and the odd thingie from somewhere else.
6) Most of theses not-module packages are still from the CPAN. [1]
7) Reading through the lines above, I mention (in brainstorming mode)
   "distributions" and "cpan" and 'core vs. cpan' as options.
8) As I said, I don't care alot :)


[0] Or something like this, I might misremember.
[1] Currently 3449 packages in git have a Homepage field, and 3261
    match "cpan". So 94.5% is the lower bound, there are also URLs
    like http://datetime.perl.org/ where the tarballs are still on
    the CPAN.
