Re^4: How to abandon rights to a cpan module and stop getting bug reports for it? (PAUSE MINOS, Modules In Need Of Support)by Anonymous Monk

I'm no authority on PAUSE, but these steps seem like they would be socially acceptible, effective, and would possibly result in the module finding a new life with another maintainer.
They also seem an awful lot like work :)
Seems like PAUSE should have an abandon distribution button, that stops forwarding rt.cpan.org bug reports to your @CPAN adress, removes you as maintainer, deletes the release from your CPAN directory, and moves it to A/AB/ABANDONED , and maybe adds a README-ABANDONED.txt
If there is a PAUSE Custodial Account there could be a PAUSE Abandoned Modules Account (or Modules In Need Of Support, PAUSE MINOS )
