  • Procedures exist for what you want.

    But they all require that YOU are personally willing to step up and look after the module.

    If the author is available but doesn't have time to do your fixes, ask them if you can do a small release to ONLY fix the bugs. Often they will say yes and give you a maint bit.

    If the author isn't around, try again over a couple of weeks, and also using any other methods you can find (phone etc). If the author is currently AWOL, write to modules@perl.org and outline what you did to fi
    • I should note that the REAL problem is where the author is available, but won't do a release, or says they don't have the time to do it. But then they won't let anyone else do so either.

      That is the only case we don't have a solution for at the moment.
      • I'm not sure which of those I'm stuck in right now.

        There are 2 RT reports for FormValidator::Simple from others (it destroys profiles), and 1 from me. None of them have been replied to, or put in status. It doesn't appear that anyone has heard form the author since the last release. I've submitted patches for the issues, and all of the original tests pass w/ them applied.

        At this point, I'm hoping for the best. I really don't want to maint another dist, but I guess I'll have to if the author doesn't fall back on the planet, esp. since it's going to effect Handel and DBIx::Class::Validation somewhat.
