RubyForge at 600 projects and counting

Tom just activated the 600th project on RubyForge! That and 1,922
registered accounts. Keep those ideas (and projects) coming folks and we
will upgrade her to handle it.

We also want to thank our mirrors for handling the true brunt of the load.

Pretty amazing... especially if you consider that RubyForge opened for business only about a year and a half ago!

How many do we have to go before we can say that we have a 'CPAN'?

Wouldn't that be a CRAN?

The original model for CPAN was the CTAN for TeX.

I guess I was asking more about a number... I have no idea how many
'packages' CPAN has.

1200? 1800? Unknown?

I figured there was somebody here who could give a close estimate...

I should look around a bit more before I start to blabber.

I found this page after a bit of googling:

http://www.cpan.org/indices/du-k.gz

... so what part do we care about comparing ourselves to? I know we're
not a Perl clone, but it seems like we'd have won a major 'battle' in
PR if we can say (in some shape or form) that we have a 'collection'
as large as CPAN.

Programming is like sex: one mistake and you're providing support for a
lifetime.

But then the GEM system will need to be rewritten to support CRANberrys.
