The future of Test::Distribution

Written by Sags and posted by brian_d_foy on 2007.10.25 14:00   Printer-friendly

Test::Distribution is probably the most widely used of all the Perl modules that I've developed. It's certainly the only one that I know of that has been mentioned in an O'Reilly book.

Over the last couple of years (mainly ever since my wife and I moved out of the parents and gained the responsibility of maintaining our own household) I haven't been able to give it the attention it needed. I'm hoping that will change over the next few years, but I've hoped that several times in the past too...

I'm interested in people's views on what I should do with T::D. Some ideas:

  • Just pick off where I left off. Start going through the rt bugs and look to adding support for Module::Build in particular
  • Deprecate the module in favour of _____
  • Try and merge with the Kwailitie/CPANTS etc. tools out there which attack a similar domain but from a different angle
  • Spend my time on a different project

    It'd be really good to hear from people that still use Test::Distribution and would appreciate me coming out from hibernation.
