CPAN dists not on github

CPAN Lotterygithubpull requestscommunity Sun 22 February 2015

I get quite a few emails each week from participants in the pull request challenge 'complaining' that their assigned dist doesn't have bugs to fix. If you've got a dist with outstanding bugs, and it's not on github, adding it to github can increase the likelihood of at least some of those bugs getting fixed. Here I list the top 20 dists not on github, according to bug count.

Here's the table — the bug count is taken from RT:

CPAN Dist# Bugs
GD77
Math-Pari73
Storable60
PathTools57
IMDB-Film56
DBD-Sybase55
PAR-Packer50
Wx48
Spreadsheet-XLSX45
Catalyst-Runtime39
IO-Prompt37
Math-BigInt36
Regexp-Grammars36
PDF-API335
Graph-Easy34
XML-SAX34
IO33
Curses-UI33
XML-LibXML32
CAM-PDF32

I haven't checked yet, but some of those may have a github repo, but the repo isn't listed in the dist's metadata. If that's true, you could submit a PR to fix the metadata!
