For what it's worth, I ended up doing the arbitration for Catalyst when there was a falling out and each side owned half of the Catalyst namespaces.

It took two days to come to an agreement...

In that case, the arbitration works well because:

1. Neither side could release

2. Both sides could destroy Catalyst

3. Catalyst is important to Perl

4. As a CPAN admin, I had the relevant blessings and powers to actually fix the problem once they came to an agreement.

If the problem comes down to a CPAN permissions/control/ownership issue, I'm happy to step in and do so again.

(Step one of the arbitration is of course making sure that both sides are happy for you to do the arbitration)
