Greetings EvdB,

As someone who frequently uses, first of all, thank you. It's a very practical and useful service you're providing. If you want to continue to host the service, bravo.

As for handing over the code to the community, I certainly recommend SourceForge for the whole of the project (including any related HTML or what-not). I would shy away from adding a CPAN module though, as your service is fairly specific to PerlMonks and doesn't contain (as far as I can tell) components that would want to run apart from the rest of the application.

There are a couple things you should know before you publish your project, though:

  • As soon as you go open source, all sorts of people are going to expect you to make bug fixes, and sometimes they can be very demanding
  • It may be very difficult to get folks to help out beyond just fixing a little bug here and there

I don't mean to sound negative. It's just a good idea to know what's coming. It's helpful to have a little patience with the users out there who lack it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
