  • Hi,

    if you've already spent too much time tracking this down, then please go all the way and bug the author so he uploads a fixed release to CPAN. I do this all the time and I wholeheartedly think this is an important service to the community. I would guess Florian Ragwitz / rafl would be reasonably responsive. After all, he maintains much of the debian perl stuff if I am not mistaken.

    If he doesn't respond, you can always ask to make you co-maintainer so you can upload a quick fix. (Provided
    • Steffen,

      It's already filed as a bug on RT. The patch was proposed three years ago. I posted this entry mainly for web searches as much as anything else. RT isn't crawled, so the usual search engines don't know abou it.

      This is a crucial module for anyone doing https work. If I were to take it over, I would be doing everyone a disservice, since I know I could not devote the required tuits. I do other stuff. But if someone reading wants to volunteer for a good cause, module-authors is the place to go. See

      • I'll stop bugging you to do anything. But let me explain myself first:

        Your logic has a bit of a flaw. Just because you do not have the time to adopt the module and make it one of your own, it may well be that you have the half-hour to apply the patch and make a .tar.gz. That would make the module *slightly* better without you becoming its new full-time maintainer.

        That being said, I know and understand ENOTENOUGHTUITS, so I'll stop labouring the point.
        • Nah, you have a point. I'll see if I can talk Joshua Chamas into making me co-maintainer. At least with that one line fix, the module would already be better than it is now.
