Or, you could just take over one of the many modules that people like to use, but have no maintainer. I have a list of modules I need to give away to someone because they're just withering on the vine for lack of my time.

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    Is there a simple way of finding such modules? I know there is the list at cpanforum.com, but it is a very short list right now.

    And does the above list contain all of your modules that you want to pass on?

      Given that I didn't know about cpanforum.com, probably not. My list is: I've got other modules, most of them at 0.01. If someone wants one of them, I'll gladly work with them on that. And, to be honest, I've got like 300 ideas that would make great CPAN modules, but I just don't have time to work with them.

      If anyone wants to work with me on them, please email me at rkinyon AT cpan.org

[GotToBTru]: I
[GotToBTru]: ve been looking at a document we have been sending to a customer for years now
[MidLifeXis]: We don't, at least in this case ;-)
[GotToBTru]: and it includes a reference number that I didnt recognize
[GotToBTru]: I had to dig into the code to find out where it came from .. and it makes no sense
[GotToBTru]: so I emailed my contact asking if we could just stop sending it .. I'm afraid she is going to ask "what is that anyway?"
[MidLifeXis]: heh.
[MidLifeXis]: Most likely it is a code that some undocumented system, hidden behind layers of IT, deep in the bowels of the building under the machine room floor, reads that code to keep a presence switch from going off. :-b
