I'm sure you've seen Padre.

Although the project wasn't started by Adam, you should read the changelog. You'll see his name along-side many of the changes listed over the last few years.

Looks like we got our editor.

  Journal: File::HomeDir 0.91 data directory changes on 2010.06.03 10:33

After performing a routine upgrade of my CPAN modules on my $work machine, I noticed that I was prompted to configure CPAN for the first time after I attempted to load the CPAN shell again.

Obviously I had already done all of that so I had to figure out what had changed. I remembered having installed only a couple new modules, including File::HomeDir.

Ever looked back at something you've worked on and thought: "Gee, it's too bad that project didn't get to it's ultimate goal, but, I've learned a lot from it." I have one of those projects. Such is the world of technology, your toolset is constantly evolving and shape-shifting; even "The Next Big Thing" can become obsolete. We move on to the next "Next Big Thing."

Padre 0.54 introduced a couple of project-specific settings, one for Perl::Critic and another for Perl::Tidy. As the maintainer of the Perl::Tidy plugin, it was only natural that I should implement support for this new feature.

Unfortunately, it wasn't immediately obvious to me how I might get at this info. With Adam's guidance, I was able to write the following:

I haven't bothered to post anything in the last five months. With Christmas just around the corner, I figure this is as good a time as any to play catch up.

I would think, if everything goes well, your module would simply replace what Dan had done. Thus you should consider your work as a continuation of that (also, it has the same name).

I would suggest you set the version at 0.03 to follow that notion.

Cheers.

I've been following (and even contributing to) the Padre IDE project from very early on. I've watched it grow from very modest beginings into something quite impressive -- usable, even.

Dear Module Author,

When preparing to upload a new release of your module to PAUSE could you please review your Changes file?

Did you remember to update it? Does it contain something meaningful? Here are a couple of examples of Changes entries which mean very little to me at a glance:

  • Bug Fixed
  • Foo::Bar Fixed
  • Fixed RT #12345

Also, your SCM revision log does not a good Changes file make.

Yes, this is old news. This is just a reminder.

As noted in my last post, I was able to get a bit of a speed boost based on observations made as a result of code profiling.

Like so many before me, I have now joined the github cabal.

Check out my projects.

One of the more interesting parts of github is their breakdown of projects by language. At the time of this post, Perl has 6% of the projects -- tied with C, 1% more than PHP, 3% less than Python and most surprisingly 1% less than "Shell".

When looking at making a .deb, considering working with the debian-perl group (http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org/) as we have a group of people who can upload it to the debian repository and try to keep it up-to-date as you release new versions.
