At the request of Michael G Schwern gravatar icons have been added to author pages on CPAN search.
Any author can get a gravatar icon on their page by registering at gravatar.com using their CPAN email alias.
Does it take a little while to work? I just created a gravatar icon for my CPAN email addy but nothing has magically appeared.
The email address I have shown in my CPAN directory is not a cpan.org email address - as such the email address I have registered with gravatar.com is my personal address - but it is the same address as what is shown in my directory.Nothing has magically appeared for me either - is there something I need to do in order to have this show up?
I guess it takes a while - the images seem to be cached.http://search.cpan.org/gravatar/g/gb/gbarr.jpg <-- existshttp://search.cpan.org/gravatar/a/an/andya.jpg <-- doesn't exist
Yes it will take a while. Due to the slow nature of gavatar.com delivering the icons itself, we decided to deliver the icons from our own servers. But our cache is only updated once a day.

To make it clear which email address you must register at Gravatar - it should be your @cpan.org one.Even if you display a different address on your cpan.org home page, as I do, register the @cpan.org address with Gravatar to make the photo appear.Hope that helps.
