Thanks, though I could not find if that covers what happens after I sent the report. If it requires manual approval that might take several hours to arrive, and if I get any feedback.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Indeed, that aspect isn't covered in this documentation. It is not uncommon for mailing lists (especially high volume/technical ones) to be moderated in this fashion. If I get time this evening I'll submit changes to this documentation clarifying usage and what to expect.

    Update: ... and report the broken links on Done.

      So when I send a message to perlbug@, I get an immediate reply, but when I send one to perl-thanks@ I get nothing.

      In any case it would be awesome to add some explanation. RT 120812

        I've sent some emails and am waiting to hear back before submitting a patch. I'll keep you updated.

      As to redundant/overkill; Maybe so, but I think that a page like that would bode well for Perl's image -- popularity, PR, etc (not to insinuate to the contrary), and how would making people feel good, be a bad thing. :)
      The page would just be impressive, too. My humble thought's, anyway.


      Yes. What say about me, is true.

    Maybe a "The following people sent a note of thanks -- thanks!", somewhere. I can't see where that couldn't be easily automated. Maybe even the "Page of thanks", or something. Just so those who do take the time, know they were heard.

      "Maybe even the "Page of thanks", or something. Just so those who do take the time, know they were heard."

      A page thanking people who said thanks seems like pointless recursion. Optional confirmation of thanks may be something of interst to some, however given that (once approved) their message is visable on the public archive this too may be over kill.
