in reply to Perlmonks Zombies - Cleanup?

I could go along with the first part - purging un-used accounts.

But I don't like the second part where active users that have left get 'unpersoned', to use a George Orwell-ish term.

My best example of this is tilly, a fantastic contributor who has been forced by his employer to stop visiting the Monastery. (Professional Employees and Works for Hire) If tilly - or anyone - decides to return after a long absence, he should not have to start over as an initiate - his old posts should continue to bear his name.

    Well, as long as we go with the "No Write Up" part (and a looong time of not logging in), it should be fine. Even paco would get to stay then. :)

    I don't think any user with writeups should be deleted, even if it wouldn't cause havoc in the database.

[Corion]: Discipulus: I'm slowly migrating my code to require 5.8.x ;) Most of my code works on 5.6, but Filter::signatures requires 5.10 I think
[Corion]: 5.14 is also a good target, widely available and fairly stable. Also, over five years old, which doesn't push people into a needless upgrade cycle
[Discipulus]: yes I saw your efforts Corion but the pain is worth?
[Corion]: Discipulus: IMO it's not that much pain, but most of the systems I use have a Perl 5.14 or newer on them nowadays
[marto]: the question is more, is Padre still the way new users should be directed?
[Discipulus]: ah ah I have all 5.26 atm but I play alone..
[Corion]: Except this RHEL box, which comes with Perl 5.10.1 , but there I installed my own 5.20.3 for the real Perl programs we run ;)
[Corion]: marto: I used Padre for some time but then switched to Notepad++, since all the funky features I wanted to put into Padre couldn't be made to work, and/or I lost interest :)
[Discipulus]: indeed marto I dunno. I tested once and many years ago. But I'm not the programmer yardstick. I try to install Padre via cpan now just to add a line about it in the issue. Strawberryperl all life long!
[marto]: yeah, when I worked on Windows I did use Np++ all the time

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
