Re^4: Howto abandon rights to a cpan module and stop getting bug reports for it? (There's the easy way or ...)by BrowserUk (Pope)

It'd be even better if CPAN even allowed a "default trust" model ...
I suspect that that would require long and wide-ranging discussions amongst CPAN authors; would probably require the implementation and validation of various checks and balances; and could conceivably have knock-on affects upon corporate views and policies with regard to CPAN. Five years from now you might finally reach a majority consensus, and all that would be left to do is argue about who is going to implement it; and who is going to fund that implementation.
On the other hand, the timeouts could probably be implemented by one person over a weekend and -- as it only requires authors to log in once every six months; or respond to an email once every six months -- should be sufficiently uncontroversial that it wouldn't raise objections.
