    I need to fix whatever the bugs are in Test::More which people are bitching about enough so they stop bitching for a while. Unlike other modules I'm not working on at the moment I do not want to give up Test::More/Builder. There's tons of potential there and I'm a greedy bastard. I'm honestly not sure what the bugs are but I'm sure I'll find out soon enough.

    If you are a greedy bastard, at least consider integrating the patches/features in the Test::More RT queue.

    If you don't have the time (it doesn't matter the reason) please consider giving a co-ownership status to other people who are willing to help fixing bugs and integrating new features. You're not giving up your ownership, you are just sharing it.

    Test::More is no longer a pet project, it's a part of the perl-core and it's used in mission critical and business environments and it needs to have a robust support of the community. If you are willing to provide it, please do it. If you don't -- share the responsibility and give other people a chance to help. The current situation doesn't help to make perl less amateurish.

    There are developers who're willing to co-own and maintain this module, just say 'yes'
