I released App::EPAN.
A lot of people proposed solutions for keeping some version of a local CPAN, for various reasons (like, e.g., keeping a DarkPAN, that is a CPAN-like mirror with private modules).
Most of the work is done by cpanm, which includes saving the downloaded distribution files into an appropriate directory. But… those files cannot be used (not even by cpanm, as I understand it) directly without some indexes, which is where App::EPAN kicks in.

This creates a sub-directory
epan with all stuff inside. If you don’t
like this… just change the name with option
Well enough for today… if you need something like this, give App::EPAN a try!
