This should be some (hopefully) useful notes on some of the bits in Fedora that assist in Perl development.

perl-core "meta" package

Since F-8, the core perl package has been split into the "perl" package and a number of sub-packages, in order to make independently updating core modules easier. It also provides the "perl-core" package, which pulls in a dependencies all the parts which comprise the traditional perl package.


The cpan-upload package provides an eponymously named script, which (after a little configuration) allows one to easily upload modules to PAUSE without having to go through the web interface.
