in reply to Maypole and I - Tales from the Frontier of a Relationship


Since yesterday I am the new maintainer of Maypole.

Just wanted to say that after some time of inactivity it's now again very actively maintained and I am happily accepting patches! ;)
So most of the pitfalls will be covered soon.

And yes, there is a common way for plugins, but it's cleanly separated into another module named Rubberband.

    woo hoo. good news indeed. a maintainer is just what is needed.

    i'm pretty sure Maypole will work with apache2 as a mod_fastcgi script. i know it works fine that way on apache1. the fastcgi FAQ and examples have the code, it's only a few lines added into CGI::Maypole to make a FCGI::Maypole.

    it's also easy enough to get around the Apache::* dependencies, i believe A::Request is just used for Cookies.

    imho, the Apache::* dependencies should be removed as they are mod_perl related and not merely for apache. i hacked my FCGI Maypole enough to support Cookies and Sessions using the same interface that the Maypole modules use (Maypole::UserSessionCookie or somesuch) but just using the functions provided by CGI::Simple. just a little work would let Maypole support request headers without relying on A::Request.

    i have patches for most of these things, but since nobody was maintaining i didn't send them in. the original project i chose Maypole for is about ready for it's second incarnation and i've been wondering if i should continue with Maypole or try another path.

    i'm on the mailing lists, i'll pay attention now that there's somebody at the helm and i hope Maypole picks up some momentum.

      It would be nice if someone started a patches section on th e Maypole wiki to keep that kind of stuff on. It would be an easy way for you to show your patches and hopefully get them worked into development. Just my 2 cents! :)
