in reply to Reporting bugs in corporate-sponsored CPAN code

Personally, any module that's released via any work-related entity that I run into trouble with I patch and release publicly ASAP. That's just the most efficient way of dealing with it, but that's just because I'm usually the public maintainer of that code. When you're working with a large group so that changes may take more time, it might be a good idea to put the bug (and possibly patch) in whatever public ticketing system is the most useful - rt.cpan.org is available for all CPAN modules, but if you have your own system, it may be better to use that.

Aside from that, if you're putting up modules as "open source", I just want to plug http://github.com as a code repository. It makes publicly forking / patching other people's code a breeze and gives you a very clear view of whatever other people are doing with the code.

[LanX]: I pronounce it 'juːmən'
[Your Mother]: Hey, let's not bring antisemitism into the conversation.
[LanX]: for centuries posh English speakers tried to approach French, that's where all the trouble starts
[Eily]: Just another Perl coeurs
[Eily]: (perl with hearts, 'Acker with a French accent is pronunced like coeurs)
[LanX]: IMHO 'ju' for 'u' happens in English where they can't pronounce the French u (or German )
[LanX]: and I'm sure I read that *hotel* used to be pronounced 'otel by the English upperclass
[Your Mother]: American English vowels are pretty lazy/mumbly in general.
[LanX]: talking about antisemitism, youtube automatic subtitles is entertaining shocking sometimes ... like when offering "Fruit Jews" as a drink
[Your Mother]: ...Come on you King of the Juice...
