App::Git::SitePerl - Versioned site installs using Git and CPAN
# create a .git and configure CPAN.pm:
% git site-perl-init
# use CPAN.pm normally:
% cpan Module::Foo
These two scripts provide hooks to have a versioned sitelib directory, by configuring CPAN to use a wrapper that invokes make install or ./Build install normally, and then calls git add and git commit.
If your perl is completely isolated from the rest of the system (e.g. installed with the prefix /usr/local/perl-5.xx.x instead of /usr/local) then it's better to git init at the top level of that prefix.
Unfortunately in a shared prefix there is too much potential for confusion by accidentally committing non Perl things.
