FAQ
Hello,

I have a xmessage clone written in Perl/Tk and want to add this script
to the CPAN archive. As there is no "GUI" category, is it OK to create
one? Or does this script better belong to another existing category?

For explanation: xmessage just opens an window showing a message and
user-defined buttons, and returns a per-button exit value.

Regards,
Slaven

    I just uploaded a new version of one of my scripts to CPAN, and I was reminded
    that the scripts archive doesn't support tarballs.

    My distribution has two versions of the script (one using Date::Parse, and
    another using Date::Manip), as well as the usual Makefile.PL, MANIFEST,
    README, and tests.

    How are things going with adding multi-file package support to the scripts
    archive? Is there anything we can do to help?

    Thanks,
    David

    I would think that GUI is an attribute instead of a category, e.g. a GUI
    is a front end to something else. Perhaps it could fall under the
    utilities category, etc.?

    Well, utilities is nearly as meaningless as GUI :-) What about a
    combination of both, e.g. GUI/Utilities or Utilities/GUI?
