Re^6: Fixing broken CPAN modules without author cooperationby BrowserUk (Pope)

That sounds like you are saying that if someone offers you a patch for one of your modules that you no longer care about, you aren't going to make any effort to apply the patch, but you're still going to get upset if they upload an unauthorised version.
Why should it bother you? You don't care about the module. Any bugs arising from the unauthorised version are going to go to them not you, and you can still ignore any bugs that arise from your version.
You are effectively saying: You cannot fix any of my abandoned modules unless you are prepared to take of full responsibility for it. That's just silly.
