Bug ID: 905112
Summary: Update to metacpan.org
instead of search.cpan.org
Description of problem:
"Ever since MetaCPAN launched I’ve been getting increasingly irritated with
people who still use links to search.cpan.org
. Isn’t it obvious that MetaCPAN
is better? Why do people still insist on sharing links to the older site?
Of course they do it for various reasons. Perhaps they aren’t as in touch with
the modern Perl world as I am. Perhaps they are wary about changing to use the
new shiny toys because they know that a newer shinier one will be along soon.
Perhaps I’m reading a web page from five years ago and they can be forgiven for
not linking to a site that didn’t exist at the time."
Fedora can do its bit to help this, by making cpanspec use metacpan.org
for newly generated specfiles.
Once cpanspec is updated, a bulk search-replace on all existing Fedora Perl
specs may be considered.
