in thread DBIx::Simple - Your opinions/review please

I think it's important to note here that this is not merely a case of a 48 hour silence, but one of at least one legit bug being ignored for 7 months

One of the two open "bugs" was a licensing issue, the other was a non-issue because that one had already been addressed in a previous release.

In any case, all bugs in the RT queue have now been addressed; the licensing "bug" is still open, metaperl's ticket and the duplicate report were rejected, as was an open feature request.

RT is there, but I prefer bug reports by e-mail. My CPAN mail address redirects to /dev/null because it accumulated an enormous amount of spam that after forwarding is pretty hard to filter accurately. As a result, I don't get e-mail notifications from new RT tickets. I never asked for an RT queue; it is created automatically and there is nothing CPAN authors can do about it.

    The META-spec 1.4 version includes resources by which you can indicate a different bugtracker. Would that help?

      Hm, yes, if that bugtracker can be my mailbox... e.g. with a mailto: URL.

      I do like RT, by the way, and I'd love using it if I could use a regular e-mail address, instead of the @cpan.org forward. Actually, it's been years since I pointed that forward to a devnull box; perhaps spam scanning has improved since then, and I should give it another try.

    Well, that explains a bunch. Thanks for writing it out. :)

    Some comments: I agree that the bugs were not that important, my point was more about them being ignored in the first place, i.e. no reply. I understand now why that happened and it is a legit reason, but i still think that the impression it gave is what it is.

    As for RT, I'd suggest using a google email account for that. Their spam filtering is excellent and i cannot remember the last time i received a spam email that way.
