Does anyone know the status of perl/tk these days? Is it actively maintained? I believe the original developer was Nick Ing-Simmons, and ca. 5 years ago he announced he would stop doing maintenance work on perl/tk. He's now deceased. I seem to remember that someone else did step up at some point to become the maintainer, but googling isn't telling me who that might have been.
I have a medium-sized (15k lines of code) open-source Perl/Tk app, and I'm wondering if I need an exit strategy.
What prompts me to ask this is that a user recently filed a bug report saying that unicode was not properly handled in a file-opening dialog. This seemed to trace back to an issue in Tk::getOpenFile (perl/tk does support unicode in general, right?), but I couldn't figure out who to contact about the getOpenFile issue. CPAN still lists Ing-Simmons as the maintainer of perl/tk.
