Release in the middle of the night, don't release very often

[ #9562 ]

I've just released CGI::Wiki 0.10 - the observant will notice there are a few versions missing since the last released one, 0.05. This wasn't just to save myself the trouble of uploading a few mistakes before finally getting it right, but to flag a small interface change. I have documented the change in the pod, the example, README and Changes, and added some temporary code to warn if it's called with obsolete parameters, but I still worry that this is going to annoy people. Oh well, I doubt anyone's using this live yet, anyway.

Next thing to do is finish the SQLite backend to Search::InvertedIndex — it's passing about two-thirds of its tests now. Then write a wrapper around Search::InvertedIndex to cope with phrase searching (already have an idea of how to do this, planted there by its author via email).

And at some point I need to prod chromatic again about my suggested changes to Text::WikiFormat -- I need to be able to support usemod-style formatting.

Finally there's my silly modules to attend to — I was foolish enough to write a screenscaper for a Wiki, which although really quite useful for finding food and drink in London, does require quite a lot of babysitting as people change the site around me :) (Code is in the WWW::Grubstreet modules, not CPANned for obvious reasons, but available on my website.)

      Ah, only one of those is mine, I think :) Although maybe it should have been two — just ask if you want me to split it up to make it easier to evaluate, or indeed if there's any other way I can help. I've had a couple of people asking me about more extended formatting now.

      • You're only one of several people to blame. That Piers [perl.org] fellow had several interesting suggestions for Test::MockObject.

        I think smaller patches would be easier to evaluate, though. If you do that, I'll definitely take a look next week on holidays. :)
