Request for CO-MAINT on my CPAN distributions

Things are very up in the air for me, and I am uncertain whether I'll get back to my distributions or not.

I am looking for a co-maintainer that I can assign to all of my published CPAN distributions in one fell swoop.

This is not an attempt to find someone to own or actually maintain them directly, just someone who has ownership properties who would be reasonable and fair in possibly holding control in the event of a long-term/permanent absence of myself.

I'd rather ask here first because vetting would be quick and easy. Otherwise, within the next two weeks, I'm throwing it open to the modules@ list as a free for all. I'd really, really prefer to have a controlled shared thing though.

If anyone desires or has interest in fulfilling this request, full blown access to my Github repositories would be discussed shortly after co-maint permissions have been granted on the CPAN dists.

Again, all of them for meta-maintenance mainly. If you want to work on them, that's good too. I will take requests for individual distribution takeover if I'm asked at steveb <> cpan org.

My CPAN Distributions.


I also have ownership of a few other distributions in the shared memory arena, but they won't show up on my distribution list because I haven't formally uploaded an updated version of said software.
