  • File::Find::Rule is stable and perfect. It's just a wrapper around File::Find which doesn't make you have to worry about callbacks.
    • Perfect might be a step too far, but as nobody's been screaming out at me that it's become broken, I'm going to have to go with 'it's done'.
      • Well, you still need to take care of the bugs in RT [cpan.org] (i.e: fix them or close them) or people may conclude, like J. David did., that F-F-R is abandoned. While you're in the neighbourhood, you may wish to deal with the Kwalitee problems [perl.org].

        • Hm, see I thought my positions on rt.cpan.org and Kwalitee were known at this point. I don't play either game.

          I deal with bugs that are mailed to me using the contact details in the AUTHOR block. If I want to use an rt queue then I can point people at it in the documentation, but you can see I haven't. That one automatically exists doesn't make it any more appealing to me, though I am grateful that the facility exists for people who do find it useful.

          As to Kwalitee, I don't have the time in the day to game that system. I also don't feel that it has any direct effect on the fitness of the code, but that's a different argument.

          I'm trying to be an active module author here, but when I have to cruise comments on blog posts to find out that people want me to change my code, something somewhere broke.

          • The CPANTS kwalitee is not very important, I just mentioned it in the same breath. However, if you don't want people to use rt.cpan.org, then you can use a META.yml field to point them to the right URL for the correct bug tracker. (See Ack's META.yml for an example). This URL may as well be a page on your homepage (or on a wiki) that says "Email me your bugs.". And you should close the bugs there with a nice comment saying "Please email them to me". (After you've done the META.yml change).
