Official Mirror:
CPAN::Inject is a Perl module that provides a simple and reusable interface for injecting arbitrary packages to a CPAN mirror. Specifically, it accepts any Perl distribution tarball and performs some processing to make it look like it came from CPAN. Subsequently, the package will be installable from the CPAN Shell, with the full automatic recursive dependency resolution. This package also provides a command line utility, cpaninject, which can be used to inject arbitrary packages under the officially blessed "Reserved Local CPAN Author" id, LOCAL.
