How does perl-thanks work?by szabgab (Priest)
|on Dec 17, 2013 at 09:40 UTC||Need Help??|
szabgab has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I just tried to send a thank-you note to the Perl 5 porters, but I am not sure if it worked. How can I check it?
First I ran perlthanks on the command-line. After answering all kinds of questions and writing my note, it told me it has submitted the message, but as I don't have a running e-mail system on my machine, I am not sure if it worked at all.
Then I sent an e-mail to perl-thanks-at-perl.org from my Gmail account.
According to domm, they used to reach the Perl 5 porters list.
So I wonder. Have my attempts failed? Am I looking at the wrong place? Are they waiting in some other queue for someone to approve them manually? Do I need to send the thank you in some other way?
Shall I submit a bug-report complaining that thank-you does not work? :)
UpdateThe one I e-mailed from Gmail has just showed up in the archive. (6 hours after I sent it). I don't know for sure, but I assume it was held for manual approval as moritz also suggested.
