I also have this problem. Not many days go by without me needing a CPAN module that isn't pre-packaged into an RPM.

In those cases I often find that cpanspec works to whip up a quick RPM that that I can use. I don't know how many of those automatically generated RPMs would reach the standards required for inclusion in Fedora, but I'm slowly (manually!) making them available at


And why don't you contribute them back to fedora instead shipping them

Well, I'm not sure that putting them on a public web site constitutes shipping them for my private pleasures :)

I've always had a sneaking suspicion that what I've got are good enough for me, but not for Fedora's repositories. I suspect that to do that I'd need to put more time into cleaning up the specs than I can spare.

But, yes, I agree that it's something I should do. Once I've sorted out what I've got and made sure that a) they're all up to date and b) nothing duplicates stuff already available from Fedora, then I'll look at submitting them to the Fedora approval process.
