Update: In discussing this with crazyinsomniac and toma, I came to see the errors of my ways. :) People on perlmonks shouldn't have their code transferred to CPAN at someone else's decision. If one wants his or her code to be available in that central repository, one can upload to CPAN. Perhaps it would be better not to create a structure for doing so. If, on the other hand, the majority opinion is otherwise, I think that in addition to the points I made below, the original author of the code should have a say in whether or not the code is shared on CPAN.
princepawn makes some valid points, as does everybody in this thread, particularly tilly in this reply. I think that one of the important word's in princepawn's original is "relationship," though.
Perhaps if perlmonks is willing to do some work to create this relationship, CPAN would be willing to unbend enough to create a special category for perlmonks' code. That is, an area in which it is understood that:
Of course, the main barrier to this is that adding such a review process will be a burden on vroom, but those who think that a relationship with CPAN will be useful should, IMO, be willing to help with implementing this.
In reply to Re: this place should define a relation to CPAN soon
