If you consider version 1.7 to be very, very outdated, why is it still current on CPAN?

Most people will get their versions of your software from CPAN. If that sucks, they will (IMO rightly) conclude that your software sucks. Because the version that they see really does suck. The right solution is to make a non-sucky version of the software available for wider use. The wrong solution is to tell users that they need to learn the secret handshakes and become part of the development community for your software.

Most potential users think that they have better things to do with their time than become developers. That also applies to most of the people who might eventually become developers on your project.

I don't care if you don't believe me. But paying attention to how you work with the broader community will result in your group growing even faster and becoming even stronger than it already is.

    Thats a longer story...

    But to make it short, the PAUSE permissions got lost when Andy Lester tried to transfer them to me, so i can't release new versions until a CPAN admin fixes that.

    And the requerst to fix it is lying on modules@perl.org for a few weeks now without anyone touching it. :(

      In other contexts resending it might be rude, but in this case I'd advise you to just go ahead and send in your transfer request again -- when one of the modules volunteers has some free time they tend to start processing a few of the more recent requests, and submitting it again makes it clear that you're still waiting for a response.

        Well, you may have seen it in the CPAN nodelet, i released a new Maypole version.
        I still don't have the PAUSE permission to do it, but i don't care anymore...

        And it seems nothing broke. :)
      Oh good, I'm not the only one to get irritated by modules@perl.org being equal to /dev/null :-)
