Hi, Terry, Good point! Terry Brownell wrote:

As I understand it, submitting code to CPAN is de facto making it available to the Perl community for re-use. We could certainly (with appropriate legal help and language) make such a release a prerequisite for any code submitted to UHURU. And, of course, anyone who wants to write code that they keep private and proprietary has a perfect right to do so; they just can't submit that code to an open library! (You can't have your cake and give it away, too!) -jn-
