there's a lot of questionable modules being uploaded to CPAN which create top-level namespaces, very often not even being self-explanatory. it would be nice to add points for modules which have registered namespaces. this should encourage more appropriate module naming.

-1. Do we even register namespaces any more? I tried 3 years ago with Handel and never heard anything. For that matter, it took me forever just to get a PAUSE id. Now maybe it was an RT/Email/Pause form issue...but still, it was not fast. I've been under the impression ever since that they just don't register namespaces any more. If I'm wrong, then I'd like to register a few then, like Handel.

-1 As to the intent of the proposed kwalitee rating: the "don't open a top level namespace" argument made sense when walking the module directory tree was the only way to navigate CPAN, but we have several ways to search it now and a fledging tagging system coming online. If a new top level best describes your module, go for it. WRT requiring module registration: the act of registration adds you to the registered modules list which has been rendered moot in lieu of much more powerful things such as search. The existing categories are wildly out of touch. I just see it as busy work and haven't bothered in years. The DSLIP information is now better done with META.yml resources fields. The process also involves humans, so... WRT the intent of forcing the user to get approval for their module: while it's nice to ask for opinions for your module, it sucks to hold up sharing your new module with the world while waiting for humans to respond. And modules@perl.org can be really, really slow. Finally, WRT whether or not registration is correlated with quality: If you look at what's registered on the module list and what we consider to be good quality code I wonder if you'll find a correlation. -- Stabbing you in the face for your own good.
