  • Isn’t it dead because it’s been superseded by Email::Filter [cpan.org]? Hmm, I was going to say that that’s where I’d start with my own filtering efforts nowadays, but that looks quite dead too, with 2-year-old bugs in the tracker.

    Anyway, how about just leaving inline notices that a behaviour may change when you document it, as well as adding to the TODO and/or BUGS AND LIMITATIONS sections in the POD?

    • Right. Like much of the "Perl Email Project," Email::Filter is languishing with open bugs and no real development. I could migrate our code from one to the other, then implement the features that were dropped form Email::Filter, and then realize that Email::Filter is being ignored.

      I feel that my employer and I are much better off starting with the inferior-in-code tools and improving them until they're as good. Since we trust the maintainer (me), we don't need to worry about lists of ignored bugs.
