An increasing number of organizations are starting to use local CPANs to store and deploy their private Perl code. This talk will review the currently available tools for building private repositories, with particular focus on the new CPAN::Local library for creating custom repos that can handle non-standard needs (https://github.com/VendaTech/cpan-local).

The talk will cover:

* CPAN basics: directory structure, indices, full vs. passthrough mirrors
* Existing CPAN management solutions: CPAN::Mini and derivatives, Pinto, CPAN::Local
* Tools of the trade: libraries for working with distributions, for reading and writing indices, and for testing CPAN repos
* Practical issues: deployment with CPAN clients, locking dependency versions, serving documentation, remote access and security
