I am moving into the Trac system RT 38262, originally created by Jerry Gay in January 2006.
Since that time various interpretations of what the ticket should accomplish have been advanced; see the original ticket for that discussion. The most recent post in the original ticket was by Coke in February 2009:
Summing up an IRC conversation with allison from today:
- Let's explicitly list which modules we are dual hosting from CPAN.
- building parrot (configure & make) shouldn't require anything outside of core perl.
- modules that are used for, e.g., 'make html' or other similar targets can be moved to the parrot developer bundle on CPAN.
