12:12 karjala_ Shouldn't metacpan's search have a "sort by" option?
12:12 karjala_ For example, to search for the most populat DBIx::Class modules, or the most recent ones
12:13 karjala_ popular*
13:03 ranguard karjala_: code base is open source ;)
13:04 ranguard and we accept patches (popular is hard btw, but there have been attempts and we'd love someone to work on that)
13:04 karjala_ by popular, I mean number of ++
13:04 karjala_ wouldn't that be easier/
13:04 karjala_ ?
13:05 karjala_ that would incentivize people to ++ their modules with 10 accounts though (maybe)
13:07 ranguard yea, though there was then all sorts of thoughts on this.. https://github.com/metacpan/metacpan-api/issues/253
13:07 ranguard though that's not quite the same
13:14 karjala_ But to be honest, I can't afford time to learn metacpan + develop these features btw
13:15 karjala_ Too busy with some other projects of friends and bosses for the time being
13:15 ranguard :(
13:16 ranguard do yell if that changes - we have a nice developer VM and everything :)
13:16 karjala_ Last time I checked (2-3 years ago) he instructions
13:17 karjala_ the instructions weren't written for people with little technical skill like me
13:17 ranguard ahh,
13:17 [Tux] ranguard++; # invitations and a welcome approach
13:17 ranguard you do need a bit of tech, though we are happy to help
13:17 mst karjala_: did you make a list of the things you didn't understand?
13:18 karjala_ No. I'll try again, if it would help you, and I will make a list.
13:18 karjala_ I guess I can give one or two days for this.
13:19 mst remember that, as a relative newbie who's actually here talking to us, you are an incredibly important person to us
13:19 ranguard thanks - if you can wait until after the w/e - I'll double check it's the latest setup
13:19 mst because the trouble with being an expert is that too many things are obvious
13:19 karjala_ ok
13:19 mst so it's really hard for us to know what needs to actually be said in the documentation
13:19 karjala_ Nothing is obvious to me, ever.
13:19 mst you, on the other hand, can find the problems and tell us
13:19 karjala_ (sorry, I maent something else than what I just said)
13:19 mst a confused newbie who's willing to tell us what they're confused by is AWESOME
13:20 mst and we'd love to have the list
13:20 karjala_ of course, to go the next step and find the next thing that confuses me, I would have to have an answer to my latest question each time
13:21 karjala_ So I'd write my questions both in a file and here (to get answers)
13:21 mst yes, and then we answer, and you move on to the next one
13:21 mst and then you make sure you understand the answer and make sure it goes into the documentation
13:21 mst and then you have a working setup, everybody else gets better docs, and we love you forever
13:22 karjala_ :)
13:23 mst this is how most of the docs for most of my cpan modules happen :D
13:28 karjala_ I lately use LXD instead of VMs for dev environments
13:28 karjala_ But I'll follow your style on this one, of course
