CPAN Web Feeds

I’m still thinking about adding stuff to this blog. I’d like to add some web feeds to the sidebar. In particular, I’d like a feed of my CPAN uploads. I don’t expect it to be a particularly busy feed (although having such blatant evidence of my laziness might galvanise me into being a bit more productive) but was surprised to see that such a feed doesn’t seem to exist.

CPAN has a “latest uploads” feed, And there are a couple more documented in the FAQ, but none of those do what I want.

It seems a simple enough idea. I can pull down the latest uploads feeds and filter it on my name. But before I do that I thought it was worth invoking the power of the lazyweb and asking if anyone else has already scratched that itch.

  1. Graham,
    Thanks for the suggestion. A couple of comments on that feed. Firstly, it doesn’t include timestamps, so I can’t use it to say what was uploaded when – although it looks like it’s sorted in descending date ot upload. And secondly, RSS 0.91! Wow, nostalgia :-)
    Happy to hack on search.rss (or create search.atom) if you want any help updating it.
