    Whatís this ďweĒ in ďmaybe we should not fight itĒ? When did you ever contribute *anything* to Perl? Rhetorical, of course.

    For people looking for an answer: Itís up to anyone willing to take on the work if itís worth it. mod_perl is not the same thing as the other services and techniques mentioned and itís not what the user above described; there is simply no direct analog. For my part, I will likely never use mod_perl in new code againóbecause I will never choose apache as my webserveróbut I do maintain some in an application on hundreds of production installs and itís always a pleasure to work with.

    I have noted a striking up tick in FUD against things Perl, particularly in the form of "concern trolling". While it may seem Perl and the community is in a fragile state, it's also obvious when a coordinated effort - perhaps years or just months in the making rears its head. It can take many forms from attempting to mothball things like mod_perl or make or even cause problems on p5p and waste developer/disucssion time that takes away from the power of Perl and its community. I am not saying this is actually happening, but the community has taken quite a few hits in the last decade or two. The call to put mod_perl in Attic came seeming out of the blue on an ASF email list that traditionally is very low volume. Why? I ask "why" a lot - but it just seems to be coming at a fever pitch. So whomever you are (and I don't really mean this ^ anonymous monk), realize there are plenty of eyes here and all around the 'net.

    downvoted out of existence

    and yet you still refuse to take a hint.
