That's an example of why we install all of the gnu tools on our solaris machines at work.

Is it just me, or are "how often does a business upgrade?", and "how often are new versions released?" often completely unrelated in many corporate environments. If you have brittle code that uses deprecated features, you probably aren't even going to consider installing the latest and greatest whenever it comes out.

If perl is releasing every quarter or annually, all the people that are running 5.005 aren't going to care and are going to continue to running 5.005. Those people aren't going to upgrade until the HAVE to.

I have to agree with autarch too, the Ubuntu model would make a lot of sense, and fit well somewhere between what chromatic and Alias are proposing.

I have only recently got onto twitter. I quickly discovered Twirc, which is an IRC interface for twitter. I'm already running an IRC client all the time anyway, so the idea of using my irc client to access twitter was pretty appealing to me.

Darren Duncan sent a request to co-maintain to Matt on Jan 13th, that was CC'd to the DBI, RDBO, and DBIC lists (and some others). If he's not on the list of committers, maybe you can add him?

I've been using perl for 10ish years and I would buy, read, and flog this book on my friends. I would read, comment, and try not to troll the associated weblog.

The second option is probably more maintainable, especially if is_abstract is implemented in some common base class somewhere. If you've got grep's like that peppered throughout your code for some reason, even more so. If you don't, then it might not make sense to add that level of abstraction.

Absolutely, i think this kind of thing should be done somewhat frequently, and that the TPF should be using it when appropriate.
