[Catalyst] A few questions (possibly a FAQ)

Just started playing with Catalyst with the Mason view. We will be
moving some of our development over to it shortly. I wanted to know a
few things that I didn't see in the documentation.
First: I would like to set up a web site served by Apache (actually a
virtual server) to serve the Catalyst application. What configuration
do we need to do with the apache conf files to make this happen? We are
using mod_perl 1.x and apache 1.3.x (to keep Mason happy). I am using
the built in server (and I like it for debugging, it is very helpful)
right now, but I want to deploy this in another setting. Specifically a
mod_perl context, unless there is a good reason to go with FCGI. Any
config suggestions/examples with this? Right now we are running Mason
atop apache for our application, though we are running it more as a
templating engine than anything else.
Second: We wrote a few modules we need for our work. Should I have the
main MyApp.pm use them? Should we put these as PerlModule constructs in
our config file?
Third: Were do we report bugs/suggest changes in documentation?
Fourth: Any documentation on using sessions/state/cookies with the
system? Tying in external authentication agents?
Finally: Any hope of getting a consistent Bundle::Catalyst? I had to
do some surgery by hand to fix some things with the installation. It
would be nice if the installation of a working system could be as simple as
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::Catalyst'
without any other issues. We had lots of problems doing this, it almost
always works for us for other modules, including our own.
Thanks! This looks like a great product.
