in reply to Lets talk Moose

Has anyone done anything with Moose worth mentioning?

The way I learn about modules is generally is from the Module Listings on use.perl.org. Here's what I'd see there with Moose:

Moose - Moose, it's the new Camel

Since that tells me nothing, I'd probably ignore it.

Now it's mentioned on perlmonks. Since I don't know anything about it, I look on search.cpan.org. One of the first things I read is:

I am adopting the release early and release often approach with this module

So I look in the Changes file, find that there were 5 releases during a one month period, then nothing since April. It goes back on my ignore list, since presumably the author had fun for a while then lost interest in it.

(N.B. Artificially increasing the version number will NOT help.)

    On the contrary, it is still under heavy development (although the release frequency has slowed a little, mostly because we are now working on the really hard parts, and they take more thought/experimentation). You were looking at the "official" releases. There have been a number of developer releases since April. There will likely be another official release by the end of the YAPC::NA hackathon.

    (N.B. Artificially increasing the version number will NOT help.)

    I would never do that, mostly because I am not sure I really agree with your opinions of quality anyway. There are many very stable, very solid modules which have not been touched for years.
