in reply to Take Back Your Modules!

In order to update my (script) submission to CPAN, I need a few fixes to Pod::HtmlEasy. The author is not replying to RT; indeed he appears to have left the community: la.mx.develooper.com replies "<GMPASSOS@perl.org>: Sorry, no mailbox here by that name." So what can be done if there is no author to give up the module?

    If you are willing to maintain it you can start by creating a new release (preferably use a version number with _01 at the end to indicate developer release.) and upload it to PAUSE. In the case of Pod::HtmlEasy that would be Pod-HtmlEasy-0.08_01.

    Ask others to test your version of the module.

    Then send an e-mail to modules@perl.org and ask the admins of CPAN to give you maintainership.

      Ah! Many thanks.
