Hi, when I use make_ppm <module> I get the following vague message (which host? is it important?) multiple times: SOAP Fault: 504 Unknown Host SOAP Fault: 504 Unknown Host After some searching I found that it is generated in sub make_info_soap in PPM::Make::Search . The following URLs are hardcoded in the module source and not overrideable with config variables: my $info_uri = 'http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/Apache/InfoServer'; my $info_proxy = 'http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/cgi-bin/ppminfo.cgi'; my $meta = 'http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/meta/'; I use PPM-Make-0.9901 which was released on 02 Feb 2012. http://mirrors.cpan.org/stats/hist/ tells me theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca went inactive on 2013-10-07. What does the code in question do? Is it important or can I just ignore the message? Is there a successor to theoryx5 or should the code just die, because it does nothing but print a cryptic message? Ralf

Thanks for the heads-up. Previously Randy Kobes (the original author) ran those sites to provide better meta information on a CPAN distribution. Sadly, he passed away in 2010. Those sites had remained there for three years since then, and gone. In the meantime, I dropped support for those sites in the master. https://github.com/charsbar/ppm-make/commit/0a078c242cd93090d8097f738c5bcc04fe12fca2 I'm thinking of adding support for MetaCPAN API to fetch meta information, but have not implemented it yet.
