Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Shame on you

[ #25475 ]

If this CPAN search lists any of your modules, shame on you (there might be some good ones that slip through the cracks on this admittedly weak test, but really, uploading something as "Perl extension for blah, blah, blah"?)

And no, I'm not too serious about this. It's tough to whine about volunteer work.

  • That shows a different side of "lazy". : )
  • At least I'm not on the first page of the list...where it's totally obvious :-)
  • Well, I‘m pretty serious about it. search.cpan.org is my main browsing tool, and if that shows me “Perl extension for blah blah blah” I’m unlikely to even click through. And if I do so and find a nearly untouched POD template, well, I have to be desperate before I’ll consider using the module and delve into the source.

    I may be a snob, but I believe that someone who can’t or won’t write at least minimally useful documentation either doesn’t care beyond
