My expectation wasn't that it gets patched in a week. It was just that the positive feedback response time be relative to that of the negative feedback. If you have the time to follow rt on your iphone and respond SEND PATCH AND TESTS, then I assume you have the time to follow rt on your iphone and say "PATCH RECEIVED WILL REVIEW". I patched blindly, I wouldn't even normally do that. I didn't submit the feature request without a patch because I wasn't willing to do it. I submitted a feature request without a patch because I was looking for feedback and I'm klined from irc.perl.org. If you don't want all of my patches leading to forks into a subclass like ::ButMaintained, then I humbly submit that you need to give fair access to the same communications medium that the rest get.
Now, again I'm waiting for feedback on a different Catalyst/Moose patch, and again I'm getting fed up with not being allowed entry into irc. And, again I feel powerless without forking. I can have Catalyst::Plugin::Static::Easy up and ready to go in 5 minutes., less time then I spent writing this post. It is as if my preferred method of communication has been blocked by a spiteful moderator, and now I'm forced to play ball by the rules of the spiteful moderator or fork at the expensive of being perceived as non-cooperative.
