in reply to CPAN down again... (search.cpan.org)

For clarity, http://cpan.org is up, http://search.cpan.org is having problems, again. I raised the issue a few times and suggested that http://noc.perl.org/ be updated with a section for reporting issues, this is now live.

CPAN isn't the main perl website. That's http://www.perl.org, not is it the place to search for perl documentaiton, that's http://perldoc.perl.org. Your idea for updating the error pages seems reasonable, I suggest you raise it.

I've never had this issue with http://metacpan.org, http://mcpan.org is (I'm informed) a drop in replacement for the search syntax of http://search.cpan.org.

Update: sort of related - Proposal - Update shortcuts pointing to cpan.org to link to mcpan.org.

    Who do I raise the issue with?

    CPAN is the main Perl site for anything not in core. Pretty much every Perl module you search on has search.cpan.org as one of the top three search results. eg MIME::Lite, Moose (second result), Plack (second result). In none of those does www.perl.org appear as a resource, with only perl.org appearing as a whitepaper on Plack.

      The fact that cpan module documentation can be found on cpan is hardly surprising, but the following statements aren't accurate for cpan.org:

      "first port of call for anyone searching Perl documentation"

      "hit errors on the language's main web site"

      My earlier post explains the differences.

      "Who do I raise the issue with?"

      The contact details are on the noc page. An issue tracker for some things an email address for everything else.
