Re Lester Hightower's self-review, please note this is not self-promotion, it is related to an ancient bug from at least three years ago which has never been fixed. See the following email, which I sent over two years ago, reporting the bug:

Dear search.cpan.org maintainers,

There are two bugs regarding cpanratings.perl.org in search.cpan.org
which have been there for at least a year or so.

Bug #1: The number of reviews is wrong. The number of reviews given on
the search.cpan.org page shows the number of reviews where the
reviewer has given the module a star rating. For example,

search.cpan.org/dist/Net-Telnet/

says (3 Reviews) , yet there are actually four (one without a star
rating). This is repeated for many other cases.

Bug #2: If a reviewer writes a review, adds a star rating, then
deletes the star rating again, the star rating remains on
search.cpan.org. For example, see

cpanratings.perl.org/dist/Text-Levens...

Note there is only one review, with no stars, yet the above still
keeps the five stars that the reviewer added then removed. This is not
due to a slow update, since the stars were removed a year ago.

Ben Bullock

-----------------

Given that the unfortunate one-star rating is solely due to a bug, Mr. Hightower should be forgiven for self-rating 5 stars.

Since I've already reported the bug, maybe someone else could re-report it? Thanks.

Disclosure: I am the author of the Lingua::EN::Nums2Words module and I rated it a 5 just to try to average out the one review from Mr. Martin that was rescinded after the 1.13 release, but that is still marked as a 1-star.

It also may be worth reading this nice article on modules that do this type of work, from Neil Bowers: blogs.perl.org/users/neilb/2011/09/cp...

Rescinding my previous review as the module has been updated since 2006 but I haven't used it.
