tqisjim has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How do you determine if a module is past its end of life? PHP::Interpreter was last updated 5 years ago and doesn't seem compatible with PHP 5.2. Thanks!

    If you take a look at the module's side bar on metacpan (the one on the left), the statistics are pretty telling. Seven untouched bugs most of which are years old; failing test suite.

    I wouldn't say it's necessarily the end of the road for this module. It just needs a bit of love. If somebody were to adopt it, it could be seaworthy in a matter of weeks.

    What does that mean?

    For me anything with /PHP/ in the name is no-go, but the AFF continues to release modules , so the module is alive, for a price, probably :)
