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

Give up your modules

[ #30622 ]

No names, but if you happen to be sitting on modules which other people depend on and you're not going to fix bugs, give up the module, offer someone co-maintainership or figure out something which gives users a way out. I realize that not everyone has a pile of free time to constantly upgrade and maintain modules, but if it's something widely used and you don't have time for it, isn't the responsible thing to find a way to get those bug fixes out there?
