in thread Class::DBI mailing list meltdown

Before even the question of whether the mailing list is 'spirited' or not, the presence of a mailing list as well as a Wiki are very good signs that a module (and developer) is healthy and trustworthy.

As it would appear now, using the Class::DBI modules in one's own work looks like a scary decision to make.

Can someone at least reassure me that the existing copies of CDBI and kin on CPAN can't be destroyed?

    Er, wait. Is the module still on CPAN? Of course it is. I don't see any problem here, if the module was working fine for you in the morning I don't see how it is suddenly going to become crap just because the current maintainer realized that he didn't want to offer these services for free and resourced out of his own pocket (or his companies pocket.)

    By your definition more than half of CPAN suddenly becomes scary, I maintain modules that I am not the original author of, but I take the patches and I take the criticism, but I don't provide a Wiki or a mailling list.

    Contribute, do something, don't whine online.


      You are one of those people Tony should have banned. No feeling at all, all you care is the code that other people created.

        Congratulations! You appear to have entirely misunderstood the point.
