yeah, let's do an SDK of CPAN! The entire thing, the whole enchilada.

I think a reasonable litmus test is the ability of module to function on x% of the total number (n) of platforms perl supports, where n is 'ls hints | wc -l' plus whatever custom platform builds exist eg, VMS, OE/MVS etc. Obviously x% should be greater than 1/n. :)
: How about this thread dies until we're done deciding whether to kill individual modules? I'm sure it'll return again when we reach Tk, but at least then it will be relevant. Until that point, we're talking about Business::CreditCard and I'm waiting for more feedback from people. Silence is deemed to give consent :-) Nat
: I think that for such things we'll be better off doing specific sdks. I guess there should be a size limit on the sdk that keeps it more or less downloadable on a regular modem. .Robin After all, what is your hosts' purpose in having a party? Surely not for you to enjoy yourself; if that were their sole purpose, they'd have simply sent champagne and women over to your place by taxi.
: I agree. Maybe we should also add a document describing the platforms where the modules are known to work, a listing from cpan-testers for instance. .Robin After all, what is your hosts' purpose in having a party?

Recommend CPAN Modules lists on the Perl 5 Wiki
The danger of blowing away newer modules.
The mechanics of an SDK
Source code analyzer in perl
Two (or three) more and we're done...
All's fair love and the sdk list
More soundless noise: libwww-perl, Locale::*, LWP::* & MIME::*
Next against the wall when the virtual revolution comes...
