Update: Apparently the author is still around. My emails keep being bounced, though... hmm.
Okay, so I'm heavily heavily using STOMP lately. I'm building systems that rely on POE::Component::MessageQueue, and now I need to implement the client portion in POE.
So I grab POE::Filter::Stomp, and I notice it's broken. I could send in patches, but that module has no tests. That to me calls for a rewrite, really, but it's not my module.
Anyway, I was in a bit of a hurry, so I just re-implemented the module with tests and all (well, they aren't the greatest of tests, but they at least excercise *something*). So I conjured up a tarball and email the author...
and he turns out to be MIA. yikes.
So now I'm going to have to send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org, wait for god knows how long until the author is official accepted as MIA...
Argh, no, I can't wait. Fine, I won't upload it to CPAN. But here's my repository:
Feel free to bang on it, I'm all up for fixing things -- I really need a stable STOMP infrastructure. Let me know if you use it.
P.S. If the author of POE-Filter-Stomp reads this, please contact me!
