in thread Web::Magic 0.005

I have no experience with Web::Magic or Mojolicious. But, Let me explain my concerns with the dependencies. I work for a company that requires every module, that will be installed, to be review by the law and security departments. It's a painful process taking months. Any module that has more than a few dependencies I simply won't consider and I prefer to install modules with no dependencies.

    I'm in about the same boat. Thus far, I've been waiting ~2 years to get legal approval to ship a dozen or so modules, though getting approval to use modules internally have come along much faster than that (usually less than a month). I'm undeterred, though, and finally my management stream has gotten annoyed enough that they told me to go ahead without legal approval, told legal that we're going ahead, and they better get the approvals done in time to ship this product.

    If they're trying to make it painful to do the right thing, I just let it slide - I don't let it bother me. I leave that pain to my manager to deal with.

    Once this finally goes through, I'm going to turn around and immediately start to seek approval to ship a private copy of perl itself. Partly as a way to show that it's not phasing me, though mostly because it would be highly beneficial in many ways.

    Don't give up the fight if you have technical reasons to use those modules. If Web::Magic solves problems for you better than alternatives, go for it. I'm not sure it does/would, but if it does, then go get those approvals. At least here, I've seen no evidence suggesting it's the number of modules that is making this take so long, so whether I ask for 12 or 20, it probably doesn't really matter. We're talking about hours of extra work, not weeks.
