CPAN RPMs

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I have an interest in packaging CPAN modules as RPMs for Linux distributions based on Red Hat.

For a few years, I’ve been (infrequently) building spreadsheets which list the various modules that are available as RPMs from the better know repositories (and my own small repository). Over the weekend, I thought that those spreadsheets might be more useful if they were turned into web pages. So that’s what I did.

You can see the lists for Fedora and Centos. Over the next few days, I plan to set up cron jobs so that they are rebuilt daily.

Please let me know if you find these lists useful.

Fedora and Centos CPAN RPMs

Today I’ve updated my spreadsheets of the CPAN modules that are available as RPMs from various repositories for Fedora and Centos. I see that in many cases the “official” repos are now more up to date than my own repo (which I originally set up because the official repos are sometimes out of date).

This is all a precursor to doing a lot more work on my repo. I need to know which RPMs are being kept up to date by other people so that I can ignore those modules.

But I thought that other people might find the data useful or interesting.
