  • Hi. I have submitted bug reports on SpreadSheet::WriteExcel, that led to changes as you squashed the bugs, and I greatly respect your attention to bug reports and the visible and invisible work they lead to for you. I am not competent to write a patch to SpreadSheet::WriteExcel.

    Your view on patches is enlightening. Maybe you could put it into somewhere (the readme?) in SpreadSheet::WriteExcel, to encourage prompt useful bug reports over later worthless patches. I think anyone that can write a patch can write a great bug report, but they might not, as they want the developer to take their finding more seriously than the mass of "bug reports" of dubious intelligence.

    If you put it into the readme, other savvy module owners might adopt a similar practice, and you can Change the World.
