Set::String hijacked

[ #22027 ]
It seems that "Tels" has hijacked Set::String for the moment. Nope, I never gave it up. I tried emailing the guy, but he won't accept emails without jumping through some gpg hoops. I'm not going to jump through his hoops (especially since I don't have it on my windows box).

Instead I've applied for registration of Set::String, Set::Array, and Set::Hash. I also attempted to re-upload Set::String 0.03, but I'm not sure if it worked.

Goddammit.

  • What do you mean hijacked? When I tell CPAN.pm to install it it tries to install D/DJ/DJBERG/Set-String-0.03.tar.gz and I am doing it off FUNET.

    I suspect you are talking about to search.cpan.org which has a long standing problem in that it totally ignores the PAUSE ownership/security information and just displays the latest upload of a given module. CPAN allows multiple uploads of a given module, but the official package list which the CPAN shell uses will only point to one (which must be one of the owners

  • I see in the summary of P5P [perl.org] that Tels is mentioned in the same breath as Set::Object. There just must be a connection.
