Update: Here is some useful insight into the situation from Schwern, provided below in a post by Smylers.


Has anyone else here been following recent events on the CDBI mailing list?

There was a scuffle of sorts, regarding release timing and the overall relevance of the CPAN, which in my book wasn't such a huge deal as far as mailing list scuffles go.

Then Tony banned someone from the list who was one of the primary participants in that discussion.

Then it got weird when the guy tried to resubscribe and there were some wonky threats of legal action on the part of Tony.

Then a small discussion about the meta-scuffle appeared on the list.

Then Tony pulled the plug on the entire mailing list as well as the archives.

Anyone know what the heck happened? I was watching the list traffic and I'm still not sure.

Tony had this to say in the final message:

Thanks to the recent actions of Sebastian, and various other people both on and off this list, I am closing down the Class::DBI mailing list and wiki.

Class::DBI development will continue, and new releases will be uploaded to CPAN for the time being.

I'd like to thank those of you who helped made Class::DBI useful, and made working on it fun. Hopefully it can return to being so sometime soon.



Update: P.S. Tony, if you happen to be reading this, I've got no particular 'side' to take. I'm just in the 'happy user, usually silent, but currently baffled' camp.
