Subject: [gentoo-perl] HOMEPAGE url for CPAN packages
Date: Wed, 16 Aug 2006 11:20:22
Howdy folks,

nothing too important but it just came to my mind again: Can we please agree 
on a policy about the urls we put in the HOMEPAGE var in our cpan ebuilds?

I usually use "${P}/" and found it quite handy 
so far. Today I saw a commit by our new friend yuval whose solution was even 
better: "${P}/" - This way we don't need to 
change the url when the maintainer of the package changes. (I saw this 
happening quite often lately.)
