Anyone want to adopt Getopt::Auto?

[ #39143 ]

I took over this module from Simon Cozens nearly 5 years ago when he gave away his modules, but never got around to any of my ideas for it. What was I thinking? In hindsight, I don’t get around to my own ideas for comparable lengths of time; I should never have applied for it.

I did start a refactor at some point that’s still sitting in my projects directory, but in all honesty I didn’t get very far before losing steam. I even delayed writing this note, thinking I’d get around to making my changes available, but they’re insubstantial and unfinished and it really doesn’t matter any more. There’s a patch in the RT queue that’s been sitting there for years. I didn’t think the patch too great, but it would have been better to apply it and release than leave it in limbo waiting for a reformulation that I’d never get around to.

It is time to admit defeat. I’ve been a bad steward.

Is there anyone reading this who cares about the module? Want to take it over?
