I know it is. That doesn't make it a clear description of what the package is
for. I believe my suggestion is much clearer, but it's only a suggestion; feel
free to use the original text if you prefer.
This link works
It appears to be a missing or a broken symbolic link. The tarballs in CPAN
are all located under the authors directory tree. All others references
(e.g. from the modules directory) are symbolic links.

License text still missing, no changelog entry.
To get the package approved just add following line

Since the license text policy has now changed, this package meets the guidelines
and is Approved.
Please fix the changelog entry though to make the release consistent, and
s/www/search/ on the Source0 URL.
Aargh. Forget the bit about Source0; the current URL works fine.
