Just to add a bit:

As you know, Catalyst is like any other Perl module.  So, we deploy our
Catalyst apps to an internal "DarkPAN" along with all our other internal

What that means is on a new machine (with a few environment variables set)
you can type:

   cpanm "Our::Catalyst::App"

and it an all its dependencies are installed.  So, that Makefile actually
comes in pretty handy.

(And since we use Dist::Zilla, releasing to our internal CPAN is just "dzil
release".  So, that's pretty slick.)

We then build RPMs from these modules and that's what is used for
