in reply to Registering CPAN module namespace

As explained in About PAUSE, the is not a mailing list. You send messages to it by emailing

I didn't find any follow up message from you. When did you send it and what was the subject line? Which email address did you send it from? Update I still don't see any followup from you in the link you post. I see the initial registration request and Adam's reply. Are you sure you sent a reply?

The deal with registering namespaces is that you need to choose a namespace that is descriptive and tells the user what your module does. No one cares what your initials are; they care about what your module can do for them. :)

Re^2: Registering CPAN module namespace

    Thanks for the feedback. The message in the archive is here. I sent a follow up message from fred at redhotpenguin dot com but never heard anything back.

    I was debating with myself at the time whether or not my contribution warranted the Time::HiRes::Something namespace, so I moved ahead with my own namespace since I was still flushing out what the module should do.

    I had seen author related namespaces used in more than a few cases (i.e. Stonehenge::Throttle, Gungho, Danga::Socket, etc.), so I figured it was better to get it out there and be wrong rather than not get it out there :)
