Taking over maintenance of Spreadsheet::ParseExcel

[ #37751 ]

I've taken over the maintenance of Spreadsheet::ParseExcel from Gábor Szabó.

I didn't want to because I barely get enough time to maintain/extend Spreadsheet::WriteExcel. However, Gábor is very busy with other projects and ParseExcel needs to be kept ticking over since it is so widely used and ultimately I'm probably the best person to deal with the Excel internals that are at the heart of the module.

Initially I plan to clean up the documentation, add more working examples and deal with the more egregious bugs. I may try to clean up and document the internals as well so that someone else can take over maintenance and so that patches are more consistent. It will also give me a chance to get ParseExcel and WriteExcel working better together.

Anyway, I've set up a Google Group for discussions relating to the module:

Feel free to join, post, chat if you are interested.

John.
