( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A while back I coded up (RSS feeds to and posted about it here. It recieved a good reaction and has been seeing moderate usage ever since.

Now I am far too busy to properly look after it and people are starting to notice when it misbehaves - mainly with dodgy characters getting into the XML. What I want to do is to open it up and let any and everyone work on it if they want to.

How should I do this? I could put it on sourceforge, I could make it a CPAN module and accept patches, I could find one person who wants to work on it and give it to them.

It is all slightly complicated by the fact that it is a web service. I am happy to continue hosting it but it should only be hosted in one place - mainly to keep the load on perlmonks proper down and mainly so that people know where to go for it.

Any and all thoughts, experiences etc welcomed.

Moved from PerlMonks Discussion to Seekers of Perl Wisdom by davido per consideration.
