Git-CPAN-Patch (0.2.1) *****

I haven't even really used this much and have already found the killer feature that makes me very happy.

mkdir Foo

cd Foo

git-backpan-init Foo

And you get a nice git repository will a full history of the desired package. The practicality of this feature alone for being able to just rewind to a given version and have a full history without a published SCM, is just wonderful.

It also produces nicely formatted commits with the original authors names on them, and the proper commit timestamps.
