FAQ
Hi All,

I have been trying to get Pause ID but seems like either the request is
getting rejected or something is wrong in the way I am raising the request.

I have applied twice in past.

EG: http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.modules/2010/09/msg72805.html

Could someone please share some pointers on it.

Cheers,
Parag

    You mention sharing scripts in the request -- PAUSE doesn't actually do that; it's only for modules. If you meant modules by "scripts", then maybe that was the misunderstanding.

    Is this page out of date then?

    I remember when computers were frustrating because they did
    exactly what you told them to. That seems kinda quaint now.

    Yes, I'm not sure that even worked in 2002 when the page was last updated.

    /scripts/.* should just be redirected somewhere else.

    I must correct you, Ask, scripts/ is indeed alive, it is updated by a
    cronjob that Kurt Starsinic contributed. We never deprecated it.

    We have different definitions for "alive", then. :-)

    There have been no new scripts included since the old submission instructions were renamed to "legacy.html" ~12 years ago. Indeed I have to go *15* years back to find any files that were touched "recently" (see below).

    That's what I was suggesting we do. Just make a directory on backpan and move it there.

    There's a mirroring bug somewhere then.

    Ah, I'm sorry -- I completely missed that the index files were pointing to proper PAUSE files!

    Anyway, I still think we should deprecate it and recommend people create "App::foobar" modules with a script "runner".

    I've used it in the past for activitymail, FWIW.
