in thread grepping CPAN?

I made a mirror, was shocked at the size, then dug into where all the disk space was going. Stuff I'd never use, single App distros that were >100mb, apps for platforms I'd never use, ridiculous, insecure crap nobody should use.

    I followed your link out of curiosity, and FullAuto doesnít seem bad to me. Orchestrating dozens of servers can be a pain. I usually just use .ssh/authorized_keys but it does have a connection overhead on every single remote command I run. I get around that by putting scripts on the remote host so that Iím only making a few ssh calls and the remote scripts do the lifting. FullAuto looks like a reasonable alternative design.

      How closely did you look? It's a disaster. Rex is a sane alternative.

    so you are manually maintaining a blacklist of distros?
