[Slackbuilds-users] perl modules' naming convention

Hi all,

I was preparing a .SlackBuild for spamassassin and its correlative perl 
modules (only required modules: for now I'll avoid optional ones), and 
I've noticed in the SBo repository some packages are prepended with 
"perl-" and other are simply capitalized (without prefix).

Do we have a standard naming convention for perl modules to follow?
Basically I would go for "spamassassin" (without prefix or "Mail") and 
"perl-$A-$B" (for cpan modules; e.g. perl-net-dns, perl-html-parser 
...). Is it acceptable?
