Just saw an announcement of Git::CPAN::Patch over at Yanick's blog.

This is an awesome tool to create patches for other people's modules (OPM(tm)). It will create a git repo from current sources so you can get straight to patching. New in v0.7.0, if the module has a public repo, it'll pull directly from that. Rockstar!

Git::CPAN::Patch could already seed a local repository with the latest distribution of a module, or its whole BackPAN history, or its GitPAN mirror. But with version 0.7.0, it can now go straight for the meat and clone the distribution's officil git repository, provided that it's specified in its META.json or META.yml.
