Dwindling CPAN releases

This couple of months I’ve been casually looking at daily CPAN uploads, because I entered the Once-a-day-releases game. I notice that the uploads are getting scarcer and scarcer. So today I decided to take a look at monthly upload statistics. The result is summarized in the chart below which shows the number of monthly CPAN releases, unique distributions, and unique authors up to July 2019.

Indeed, the uploads have been diminishing recently, from 1215 in Apr, to 980 in May, 886 in Jun, and 944 in Jul. Not counting my own releases, it’s 1076 in Apr, 888 in May, 793 in Jun, and 753 in Jul. It’s sad to see that I affect the stats so significantly. I can’t be the only one still using Perl that much or actively in the whole wide world, am I?

One thing I want to point out is that, ironically, the tipping point is Aug 2014, when the first CPAN Day was organized. The number of releases peaked that month, but then have been steadily dwindling ever since.

Nowadays, CPAN gets 20-30 daily uploads on average; it was around 60-100 in 2014. Meanwhile Python’s PyPI page indicates that it gets at least 700-800 daily uploads. Interpret that as you wish, but Python is clearly eating everybody’s lunch. First it was Perl, then Ruby, then R.

Maintaining Address Book In Org 01: Introduction

About this series: A collection of short blog posts about my experience maintaining addressbook (contactbook) in Org format. I keep each post short so I need to spend only ~30 minutes creating each.

Despite having used Emacs since 2004, I didn't discover org-mode until late 2010. As with many others, I was first drawn to org-mode because I was searching for a better Todo list system, having tried, among others:

Not one, but a few personally-made-up formats and conventions over plaintext.

Some CGI application which I access from the desktop as well as phone browser.

Some kind of Wiki system.


Physical notebook.

Various text editors and todo applications, on various platforms.


Gadget apps, from Nokia, BlackBerry, to the various Androids.

Even YAML at one point, when I was obsessed to some degree with it.

I've always hated, and still hate typing on a smartphone, so even though now I use a combination of smartphones and PC/laptop and paper/notebook, my main mode of entry is still through a proper keyboard using Emacs on a Linux. When I tried org-mode for the first time, the outline feature was enough to draw me in and make me start creating some notes. Soon, more and more things got (re)written in Org format, including my master addressbook.

If you're anything like me, you'll right away feel that the addressbook or contacts app on the smartphone is too restrictive. It's just a linear list of contacts, where each contact is given the standard fields of mobile number, work number, work fax, home number, and a few others. Adding note is sometimes not even possible, let alone structured notes. So I soon decided to have my master addressbook on a computer in Org format. I fill and sync my phone contacts using the phone-provided apps, and most of the time enter each contact manually and separately into my Org addressbook, but the most detailed and complete data will be in my Org addressbook. When I get tired of my phone or Google account, I just ditched it and buy another phone or create a new Google account with its blank contacts database to start over, but I keep maintaining the same master addressbook in Org.

The next posts of this series will share how I ended up with the current layout/system for my Org addressbook. Stay tuned.
