in thread Responsibilities of a module author

Except, I am actively maintaining it to the best of my abilities. It's still my responsability and I will be using it for work. In addition, I want to be involved in the direction that it takes as a module I do maintain depends on it. It's never quite that simple.

Oh, and PDF::Writer has no documentation as the API is completely random and will change every release for a while as I refactor.

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    I don't see anything wrong with saying that. I wasn't trying to suggest that you should deprecate a module that you are maintaining. Whatever is your situation and level of commitment, just communicate that clearly.
