in thread What is YOUR Development Process?

You were mentioning that developer A produces version 1.0 of some C::A subclass for application Foo. Then, developer B comes along and upgrades that same C::A subclass to version 1.1 for application Bar. All of a sudden, application Foo doesn't work the same.

To me, each application should have its own subclass, even if that class is nothing more than

package Our::Web::Apps::Foo; use base 'Our::Web::Apps'; 1;
If only to avoid the problem that you're discussing.

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
