Before somebody picks my already nicely picked nits...I should've said
in 16 hours so because Finland is two hours ahead of GMT...

But anyway: thank the original packrats people, the list was what
made the archive, I was just the one who broke down first :-) and
actually implemented the ideas.

Nowadays the major part of new (and updated) CPAN material comes from
PAUSE, from the hundreds of authors, and for funneling and
redistributing all that creative power that we must thank Andreas.
Thanks, Andreas.
