Cleaning up the CPAN modules list

Dear Monks,

the PAUSE administrators are planning to do a little house keeping on the CPAN Modules List. We intend to remove old namespace reservations which have been registered with the modules mailing list but for which there never has been an actual implementation on CPAN. This will apply to all unused registrations from May 2007 and earlier.

Since there are surprisingly many of these unclaimed registrations, we will send an email to every PAUSE author who has such an unused namespace asking her to contact the modules-at-perl-dot-org mailing list about the issue. Registrations for which we have not received any correspondence until December will then be made available again.

If you are among those to receive such a reminder, please don't be offended. If you are still around, it is most likely a misunderstanding. For example, people have sometimes registered namespaces with the wrong capitalization.

We intend to send the reminders within the next two weeks. Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
(for the PAUSE admins)
