in reply to Looking for David Burdick

The procedure for gaining access to an abandoned library is in the FAQ:

How do I go about maintaining a module when the author is unresponsive?
How do I adopt or take over a module already on CPAN?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Ea is doing his due diligence in trying to locate the author to request co-maint. The first FAQ you linked to says this:

    Post a public message in a heavily trafficked site announcing your intention to take over the module. Potential places are http://blogs.perl.org/, http://www.perlmonks.org/, and any appropriate mailing lists or web forums.
