    The nav ribbon at the top right side of your screen under the default PerlMonks configuration includes a link to Perl News, which takes you to That's probably what you're looking for. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

    As for the module: you might consider releasing a new version of the module that only contains a bumped version number, an update to the Changes file, and an edit to the POD listing you as the co-maintainer. If there's a new Github repo, that can be listed in the POD as well, and also put in the meta data.

    The reason for this is to get people to stop bothering the old maintainer, and to contact you with questions/issues that may not be appropriate for the RT.

    I have edited that page to improve clarity. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
