Re^10: Fixing broken CPAN modules without author cooperation (years)by BrowserUk (Pope)
|on Apr 27, 2012 at 16:54 UTC||Need Help??|
An author may be associated with a module. It may even bring him some benefits. Who am I to tarnish this, or piggyback on it.
So better that their name is associated with an out-of-date or broken module, than with one that someone found useful enough to consider spending time fixing and making those fixes available.
That is the most illogical reasoning.
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
