cpan.loader - archive Perl modules from CPAN
Hi SWH folks,
I would like to know if is there any plan or work-in-progress to preserve Perl modules from CPAN.org? CPAN has a incredible archive containing 196,752 Perl modules and 42,031 distributions, also CPAN has a tradition to archive old versions of all modules through BackPan, which increase still more the total number of modules, but I'm not sure how much.
I'm interested in collaborate in this but I have no experience on SWH dev stack, also have no idea how much effort is to add a new loader on SWH, then this task here is a first step in it to know if there is already any kind of cpan.loader or if makes sense to have it on SWH.
