in thread Not Quite CPAN

Sorry about that. Yes, I am using -MCPAN::Site -eshell. Using CPAN::Site is supposed to be seamless to using normal CPAN.

When getting modules, CPAN::Site *should* look at the 01mailrc.txt.gz and 02packages.details.txt.gz in the site/ folder on the NQCPAN box. I did notice, however, when building the directory structure and running mkpackages that the 02packages.details.txt.gz is not built correctly (like that of 02packages.details.txt.gz for the normal CPAN). One of the things I tried in my many failures was to produce a 02packages.details.txt.gz file formatted like that of the normal CPAN, except listing all our packages. No bones.
