01:50 ether yay, ::Nonhuman is properly all nonhuman again
01:50 ether NMELNICK and BENW were problems
02:10 oalders ether: the gravatar situation is the way it is because a lot of people complained about how it was being done before and some just weren't happy either way so they wanted to set an arbitrary url
02:10 oalders there was a lot of back and forth
02:10 oalders i'd be open to cleaning that up, though
03:04 ether if people want to use arbitrary urls, what options are there?
03:10 oalders you can just put an arbitrary URL in your profile.  i don't think we do any validation
03:12 oalders which is really something we need to fix

03:19 ether I am not sure why people would object to using the gravatar associated with the main email address on the profile
03:19 ether that's what every other site does
03:19 ether that address doesn't even have to be PAUSEID@cpan.org

09:58 BooK ranguard: maybe you can re-open https://github.com/CPAN-API/cpan-api/issues/325 now that there is a Acme-CPANAuthors-DebianDev ?
09:58 dipsy [ [feature] Show if an author is a Debian developer · Issue #325 · CPAN-API/cpan-api · GitHub ]
10:02 BooK I might change my source to use db.debian.org
10:04 BooK and possivly come up with some way to deal with such distros more generically (Acme-CPANAuthors-Booking is managed in the same way)

17:43 neilb joined #metacpan
17:47 ether maybe a link to the other site, like we have for github and facebook and twitter and grindr etc
17:48 ether so just add it as an option in the user profile?
