Adopt My Modules

Dear Perl Community,

Over the last 17 years, I’ve created, released, updated, and/or maintained a slew of Perl modules on CPAN. Recently my work has changed significantly, and I no longer have the time to properly care for them all. A few, like Pod::Simple and Plack::Middleware::MethodOverride have co-maintainers, but most don’t. They deserve more love than I can currently provide. All, therefore, are up for adoption.

If you regularly use my modules, use a service that depends on them, or just like to contribute the community, consider becoming a maintainer! Have a look at the list, and if you’d like to rescue an orphan module, hit me up via Twitter or email me at david at this domain.

Wanted: New SVN::Notify Maintainer

I’ve used Subversion very occasionally since 2009, and SVN::Notify at all. Over the years, I’ve fixed minor issues with it now and then, and made the a couple of releases to address issues fixed by others. But it’s past the point where I feel qualified to maintain it. Hell, the repository for SVN::Notify has been hosted on GitHub ever since 2011. I don’t have an instance of Subversion against which to test it; nor do I have any SMTP servers to throw test messages at.

In short, it’s past time I relinquished maintenance of this module to someone with a vested interest in its continued use. Is that you? Do you need to keep SVN::Notify running for your projects, and have a few TUITs to fix the occasional bug or security issue? If so, drop me a line (david @ this domain). I’d be happy to transfer the repository.
