Speaking of packaging for distros, it looks like the OpenSUSE Build
Service has some semi-automated setup for grabbing Perl packages from
CPAN and wrapping them up as RPMs. I haven't dug into it, but I've
been seeing all sorts of useful things show up in the repositories. If
it can be done for CPAN using the OpenSUSE Build Service testing /
building infrastructure, it ought to be possible for CRAN as well. And
the infrastructure is capable of packaging for all the major distros,
not just openSUSE.
