in thread CPAN tarballs - can names every be duplicated?

Thank you, this answered my question. To verify, I followed Abigail-IIs suggestion in this thread, and uploaded a tar.gz file to PAUSE whose filename exactly matched that of an existing file previously uploaded by another author.

PAUSE accepted the upload, so there is nothing in place to prevent file names from being reused by a different author. PAUSE does prevent the same filename from being uploaded again by the same author.
