in reply to Finding a module to work on

Ask yourself: Do you have an itch to scratch? Do you have some particular problem you need to solve?

If you don't, chances are that whatever particular cool module you start making or maintaining, you'll quickly lose all interest in it and it becomes a burden -- unless you really have that much extra time in your hands. It's symptomatic that you can't put a name on any topic that would interest you. Usually (of course not always) this means that you are raring to do something, but once you have that something to work on, it's not what you want. (Case in point: PDF::Writer.)

On the other hand, if you accept requests, I could use Perl bindings to libogg and libvorbis -- mind you, something more Perlish than converted C interface. The goal: being able to effetively manipulate audio data in Perl, the first step being able to decode audio data and then, after processing, encode it again. This is relatively simple and you would gain some XS and C experience in the meantime.

(I had some ready code for this, but my harddrive had a mechanical failure, and since then I've noticed that there's no burning need to have it after all. But it would be nice to have. If the module even supported loading data directly into piddles, the more the better!)
