  • Are you planning on uploading those to CPAN?

    I know we don't necesarily encourage Alien:: modules (because they are a suboptimal solution that we should be using as a last resort) but if you have done the work anyway it would be a shame not to have it uploaded properly.

    Second, I feel a bit funny about the capitalisation you used for the image libs.

    Even though the general standard is for leading caps, it might be better to at least match their casing?

    So Alien::giflib would be just fine, because the capitalisation in this case has some significance.

    • "Our" encouragement/discouragement hasn't stopped anyone from uploading anything to CPAN. And I don't find this solution suboptimal either, as external dependencies are always problematic and I prefer one central place of dependency management, which to me is CPAN.

      In the long term, I plan to upload these onto CPAN, but that means making them work on more than one platform and drumming up support from the other module authors whose modules could rely on these modules, or coming up with a way to patch those
