Convert::Bencode_XS maintainership

I have a problem: I'm receiving several bug reports about my module Convert:Bencode_XS, but I'm not able to follow all of them. Also I programmed the XS part "just for fun", not having any big C skills. It seems the module catched up on popularity, people are using it and producing patches for the C part which I have problem evaluating. So I'm searching for some Perl programmer with experience in XS which would like to take over maintainership. Please post in this thread or send me a message, thanks.

    Well first I want to commend you for a number of things. First for having written a module that obviously had a need even if you weren't completely up to the task. If everyone waited for someone else more qualified where would we be? Next, that you recognize the need for handing over the reigns because you can't keep up. Pride can get in the way of progress.

    While I think it is a good idea to post here too, might you not have better luck with the people submitting bug reports and/or supplying the patches?

    Cheers - L~R

      Thank you for the suggestion. I actually found one of the contributors has a CPAN account, so I will cooperate with him.
