in thread Text::Markdown - unmaintained.

I know it's kind of off-topic, but I think this thread has everything that should make a Perl hacker feel good about the world.
  1. Someone who wants to contribute to and improve existing code
  2. Someone who wrote code in the past that was good enough to elicit interest from another who wants to help maintain and improve it
  3. An earnest, honest, respectful process for seeking this responsibility and privilege
  4. The new code passes the old code's own unit tests!
  5. An appeal to the community, who gladly offers it's help and advice
  6. The old hacker is found, and apprentices the new hacker
OK, it's an embellishment, but I'm a believer in Perl (the community) even on the days when nothing seems to be working.

I laughed, I cried... It moved me, Bob. :^D
