RE: Author's namespace
Message ID:
If the code is not to be used by others, may be you shouldn't upload it to
CPAN at all?!

If it's a piece of code used by a re-usable module of yours, then it should
be put under 
that module's namespace, instead of putting it under a non-related

    : Is there, or should there be a namespace for each author? 
    : Somewhere I can put 
    : modules that I don't consider worth releasing but that I 
    : do use in some of my 
    : released modules? For instance I have a very simple 
    : method maker that I 
    : wouldn't expect anyone else to use and I don't want to 
    : bother writing docs 
    : for it. So instead of including a copy with each module, 
    : I'd like to upload 
    : it as something like
    : Authors::FDALY::MM
    : and then I can use it in my modules but I'm not really 
    : publishing it for 
    : others to use... yes, I know it gets used in the things I 
    : do publish so in 
    : that sense it is published but lots of modules have 
    : undocumented bits that 
    : are not really intended for reuse by anyone else so it's 
    : no worse than that 
    : and it's better than having Test::Deep::MM an identical 
    : file called 
    : Blah::Blah::MM for the next module I release.
    : Exactly how stupid is this idea?
