+=head3 def/work_in_progress
 
-This module only works on UNIX (not Windows, DOS, etc.).
+The module is still a work in progress and more features are planned to
+be added. It is "in flux". This is as opposed to a module that is in 
+maintenance mode (or deep maintenance mode) and is not planned to be enhanced
+and expanded too much.

+
+This module should work on Mac OS X.

+This module should work on Microsoft Windows.

+=head1 CPAN Module-Rank
+
+=head2 Introduction
+
+The CPAN Module-Rank aims to be an automatically calculated metric for CPAN
+modules similar in purpose, but not in implementation to Google's
+L<PageRank,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank>. When we say it's
+automatically calculated it does not mean the data it is based on was not
+generated by humans. Even Google relies on the mostly human-generated web to
+build its index, but like Google's search results the Module-Rank calculation
+for a given query will not require human intervention.
+
+=head2 Parameters for Discussion
+
+=head3 Last update date
+
+L<Not fully indicative,http://perl.plover.com/yak/12views/samples/notes.html#sl-9>, but still a useful parameter.
+
+=head3 Average activity over time. (How many releases and how frequently)
+
+A-la-Freshmeat.
+
+=head3 CPANTS Kwalitee Score 
+
+Or specific metrics.
+
+=head3 CPAN Testers 
+
+This is hard to determine. Sometimes a program break due to the assumptions of the development system. (Such as only Linux or only Mac OS X).
+
+=head3 Number of incoming references/dependecies in (WWW, CPAN, etc.) 
+
+PageRank/citations-like.
+
+=head3 CPAN Ratings/Reviews. 
+
+=head3 Test coverage.
+
+=head3 Author tagging/categorising/marking. 
+
+=head3 User-contributed tagging/categorising/marking. 
+
+=head3 Total number of reported bugs (both open and closed) 
+
+The more bugs people have reported for a module, the it is indicative that people are using it. We shouldn't judge based on open bugs alone, because that will encourage people to keep them open.
