Hi Alex,

I'm sorry that you've had a bad initial experience of CPAN and now of
this mailing list.

The RT commenter who wrote:

"This isn't python's pypi where everybody is encouraged to upload for
fun whether useful or not. Only upload something if it will be useful
to others."

is entirely wrong.  CPAN flourishes not despite the fact because we
accept all code, regardless of quality, but *because* of it.

Though it looks like your CPAN code has a few rough edges, many of
them can be resolved quite straight-forwardly, and I see you've
already had some helpful advice on how to do that from Edmund, Gareth
et al.
