On December 8, 2013, NEILB created a stencil on Questhub.io opening the Monthly New Distribution Challenge 2014. The challenge for authors was to release each month a distribution they have never released before (either an entirely new distribution, an adopted or a co-maintained one).
Release a new (for you) distribution to CPAN each week. How many weeks can you keep that up?
Timings are in 'PAUSE time', which is GMT. The time for your upload is the timestamp that PAUSE puts on your upload when it goes into CPAN (which you can see on BackPAN). This is very close to the 'Request completed' timestamp, in the first email you get from PAUSE when you upload something.
In the weekly contest, weeks are counted from Sunday 00:00:00 UTC
until the next Saturday at midnight UTC. In the context of the contest,
the first week of the yearly contest is the first full week
of the year. For example, the first week of the 2014 contest started
on Sunday, January 5, 2014. In
strftime(2) terms, this is
week 1 according to
%U, with week 0 being part of the previous
The tables below list the top participants up to rank 200.
