If you are administrator for a Perl installation and you use CPAN for updating Perl modules, then this software provides some assistance to you.
CPAN+changelog is a wrapper for some of the CPAN modules' functions, namely
"r" (upgrade recommendations) and "install". These functions are enriched with ChangeLog and BuildLog functionality. A new "history" function allows you to look up when a modules' version has changed.
This aims at making module installation/upgrades more transparent (ChangeLog) and easier to analyse in retrospect (BuildLog).
"r": for every upgradeable module the corresponding ChangeLog entries are shown. This makes for an interesting read and helps you in deciding how urgent an upgrade for that module is.
"install": provides a BuildLog for all of the output produced during install. Additionally, it creates an installation snapshot by calling "autobundle" after a successful install. Those snapshots help you to recreate the same module environment on another installation. Also, the "history" function uses them. A warning is issued if a modules' version number has not changed during upgrade, indicating a build problem.
"history": looks for Snapshots and BuildLogs indicating that a module has been installed or where the install has failed
