cpan-cullers - who can free up the most space from CPAN?
This is a script which works out who can free up the most space from CPAN by deleting old releases.
It does this by grabbing the ls-lR.gz file from CPAN and processing that.
To see the top 20 offenders, just run:
cpan-cullers | head -20
Or to see how much space a particular author could free up, run:
cpan-cullers | grep NEILB
It's a complete hack, but gives a pretty good estimate of how much space each author is hogging.
