So, if there is someone out there that could ...

Here are some things which you or indeed anyone else could do:

  • Review Switch and detail its shortcomings and suggest better alternatives. Report back here and link to the review and it should get a good number of ++helpful votes.
  • Add your sentiments to Bug 86969
  • Fork the repo, improve the documentation to how you think it should be and submit a PR.
  • Lobby the dist maintainer to set the x_deprecated flag

The Perl community is just that - a community. If your cause is worthy (and I think it is) then you should be able to either devote your own time to it or convince others to devote theirs.

    Thank you, hippo, for your step by step recipe regarding how to best inform the Perl community that a module is deprecated.

    I have begun to put together my thoughts regarding a review of the Switch module, including numerous links, most of which will come from the Perl Monks website.

    (I was not aware that this was originally a Damian Conway module that programmers shouldn't use in production, because its purpose is to explore and prototype future core language features, as explained at Categorized Damian Modules.)
