I also cannot contribute to CPAN.

Maybe not for the same reasons, but for my own.

Although immediate supervisors agree that taking without giving is not nice, the beauracracy is such that I will never be given permission to publish anything that I do at work on any open source forum. (I've been pushing for almost a year).

Since I have a home life (kids, hobbies, husband (only one)), I do not wish to spend my time ignoring my family while programming stuff for CPAN. Besides, it might be legally difficult to differentiate between this work and the work I do at work.

My own moral dilema about taking and not giving back in turn is satisfied by: (a) repeatedly telling my bosses that we are using the sweat of others for our own gain, (b) providing other perl help wherever I can.
