DESCRIPTION

This is a "CPANPLUS::Shell::Default" plugin that can add custom sources to your CPANPLUS installation. This is a wrapper around the "custom module sources" code as outlined in "CUSTOM MODULE SOURCES" in CPANPLUS::Backend.
This allows you to extend your index of available modules beyond what's available on "CPAN" with your own local distributions, or ones offered by third parties.
