App::Magpie - Mageia Perl Integration Easy


version 2.010


CPAN holds a lot of great modules - but it can be difficult for the user to install if she's not familiar with the process. Therefore, Linux distribution usually package quite a lot of them, for them to be easily installable.

Mageia Linux is no exception, and ships more than 2500 packages holding Perl distributions (at the time of writing). Maintaining those packages is a daunting task - and cannot be done only by hand.

This distribution is therefore a set of scripts helping maintaining Perl packages within Mageia. They can be somehow coupled or used independently.

Even if they are Mageia-centered, and Perl-centered, some of those tools can be used also by to maintain non-Perl packages, or by other Linux distributions than Mageia. I'd like to hear from you in this case! :-)
