in reply to What's happening to CPAN? I'm worried.

Not sure about BackPan, but yes, CPAN mirrors are no longer needed. Read Project: Shutting down the CPAN mirror network for details. The basic idea is that mirrors are so 20th century, we have CDN now instead.

map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]

    I'm OK with that, as long as the cpan client still allows mirrors to be configured. I'm running local a local CPAN::Mini mirror for development reason. This allows me to override some module (injecting debugging code and so) and allows me to easily deploy my darkpan modules and module versions that have not yet released on CPAN.

    perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

    CPAN mirrors are no longer needed.

    Maybe, but mirrors are still being used. CDN is just a fancy word for mirrors. The difference between the old mirror system and the new mirror system is transparency.

    Ah, ok. (sigh) It's only outdated links and missing notes. Thanks for this link to the discussion about it!
