MetaCPAN URLs and Issues
MetaCPAN has a standard URL scheme. After the domain name we can type pod/ and then the name of a module, for example https://metacpan.org/pod/DBIx::Class with the :: with the correct case. This will always show the documentation of the latest version of this module.
If we add release/ after the domain name and the name of a CPAN release (in the correct case and with - between the words) then we reach the most recent release of this distribution. For example: https://metacpan.org/release/DBIx-Class
MetaCPAN also has a link to the Request Tracker of CPAN where each CPAN distribution has its own queue. The link also include the number of open bug reports. Module authors might want to use a different bug tracking system. They can tell about it via the META files in their distribution. Then MetaCPAN will link to this other bug tracking system. For example MongoDB uses a Jira installation.
