CPAN6

[CPAN6 -- concluded on 2011/02]

People are designed to collect things, whether it is food, postal stamps, or digital information. On our hard-drives, we collect software, photos, development sources, documents, music, e-mail, and much more. The typical application sees this `collecting' as secundary problem to their main task, offering little help in administering the data produced with it. CPAN6 focusses purely on this aspect, and can therefore improve the way people work in general.

There are many kinds of digital collections, like ftp-servers and home-directories, but as far as known, there is no infrastructure like CPAN6 which is designed to manage groups of collections in a simple way. Managing collections is a basic need for many kinds of applications, but there is not yet a common infrastructure to do it.
