Inspired by reading S22 draft, I started building some new module
infrastructure for the Perl 6 ecosystem, described briefly in [1].
To cut the long story short, it allows to easily collect the metadata of
all the modules in the ecosystem, like versions, dependencies etc
without neceserilly cloning the repositories. Plenty of modules have
alredy been adjusted to use the new ideas (includind JSON, NativeCall
(aka Zavolaj), Testing and a few more), but I think the idea is
worthwhile so I ask the module authors to consider adapting your modules
too. If you do, please let me know so I can add them to the list [2] and
test the whole idea in action.

Any words of advice, criticism and ideas about the new ideas are also
very welcome.

Kind regards,
