How to take over maintenance of a moduleby syphilis (Bishop)
|on Jul 24, 2007 at 15:11 UTC||Need Help??|
syphilis has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Me and my big mouth ... I recently sent an email to a certain CPAN author that basically said "Hey, are you ever going to update your module ?".
This guy (being obviously fairly street-smart) replied "Nope, I'm far too busy. Would you like to take it over ? ... What's the procedure ?" Naturally, I freaked, and dropped the whole issue like a hot potato.
I've since been thinking that, perhaps, I could take this particular module over. It currently won't build for me under both mandriva and cygwin (though it builds fine on native Windows) ... and I can probably fix that. (That is, I can probably break it on "native Windows" as well as mandriva and linux :-)
Which leads me back to his question ... just where do I find "the procedure" that he asked about ?
