  • Commented on Help needed updating Gedcom::Date
    Oop, sorry, if you know the day you want 'yMMMD', I believe....
  • Commented on Help needed updating Gedcom::Date
    I think if you use DateTime->format_cldr() and get the format from $locale->format_for('y') and ->format_for('yM') that should do the trick....
  • Commented on A Date with CPAN, Part 1: State of the Union
    Also don't forget locale support, which is also quite useful for any app that has to support a wide variety of users....
  • Commented on A Date with CPAN, Part 1: State of the Union
    I can live without support for arbitrary timezones. I’m willing to be satisfied with two timezones: UTC, and whatever timezone I happen to be in. If you think about it, this is exactly what’s built into Perl itself: gmtime and...
  • Commented on Grants for applications (vs. Perl infrastructure)?
    I think the main requirement has to be that the software available under an open source license. I'd also be very skeptical of a grant that was aiming to bootstrap a business by building some sort of "open core" software....
  • Commented on Uploading a new package
    I'd suggest emailing modules@perl.org or Andreas Koenig, per http://pause.perl.org/pause/query?ACTION=pause_04about The Perl blogs site makes a poor bug reporting tool....
  • Commented on RFC: Limiting grant duration
    This sounds very reasonable. You might also consider limiting the proposed duration to something like 2 months per $1,000 dollars of grant money....
  • Commented on Djet
    What is this for? Why would we want to use it? What are the use cases?...
  • Commented on My CPAN Cleaning, Day 2457025.500000
    For the ubergit, maybe git got is what you're looking for? I haven't used it myself....
  • Commented on Spam on CPAN
    I filed a bug against the module's issue tracker. I don't think the author *intended* this to be spam, but it doesn't seem to serve much of a purpose....
  • Commented on Creating an MMORPG in Perl
    Yes, please keep blogging about this....
  • Commented on Classify your RT tickets on CPAN Day!
    This list could use a little curation. SVK has been long dead. Math-Pari is completely insane, though I guess some people still use it. Personally, I stay far aware and use the GMP bindings instead. As for Tk, I guess...
  • Commented on Are conference speakers compensated
    [Side note: Please link nouns like "compensation for conference speakers" rather than "wrote" ;)] Sawyer, this is all very interesting and worth reading, but I think you totally misunderstood what the "dirty secret" was in brian's post. It wasn't anything...
  • Commented on Are Abilities Roles?
    Doh, I missed that init_arg bit. Nonetheless, my point about whether you'd instantiate the base class stands. If the answer is no, there's no point in having it be a class at all....
  • Commented on Are Abilities Roles?
    What is the purpose of making Ability a class in this design? If you never plan to instantiate it, then it should be role. Also, with your current design I could write Strength->new( name => 'Wisdom' ). That makes no...
  • Commented on I hate Dist::Zilla and missing Makefile.PL
    Why do you need a Makefile.PL or Build.PL in a repo? If it's a pure Perl module you can do everything you need to simply by running prove. For my XS modules I always do add a minimal Makefile.PL or...

  • Makoto Nozaki commented on Grants for applications (vs. Perl infrastructure)?

    Thanks Dave. It's not easy to find (which I'll fix) but the open source license is required:

    - - -
    http://www.perlfoundation.org/grant_benefits

    All software developed under a TPF Development grant must be released under a publically available license that is free for redistribution and use without discrimination against field of endeavour.

    One more to consider: DateTimeX::Immutable. Like Moonpig, it makes DateTime immutable, but it leaves the rest of it unchanged. It can often serve as a drop-in replacement for DateTime. Used with aliased you might be able to change just one line of code and never be bitten by mutating dates:
    use aliased 'DateTimeX::Immutable' => 'DateTime';

    Plus, you can make all your DBIx::Class date objects immutable with ="https://metacpan.org/pod/DBIx::Class::Inflate…

  • confuseAcat commented on A Date with CPAN, Part 1: State of the Union

    I'm in the same boat. I rarely deal with times, I often have to deal with dates.

    I sometimes feel like a freak because I rely on Date::Parse and especially Date::Format so much.

    Literally all the dates I deal with are well past 1970.

    I let the JavaScript in our front-end deal with locales and time zones.

    Plus the length of docs for the popular DateTimePiecMoment modules scares me off.

  • Buddy Burden commented on A Date with CPAN, Part 1: State of the Union

    Thanks everyone for the great comments!  I’ve been swamped at $work, so I haven’t had a chance to respond until now.  I’m going to answer everyone’s thoughts here in one post instead of trying to reply to each individually.  Hopefully everyone’s okay with that.

    First of all, the compliments.  Ron Savage and Bull Ruppert had nice things to say, and I think them for the kind words and the encouragement.  confuseAcat popped by to commiserate; it seems like we have similar perspectives, so hopefully this…

  • Ron Savage commented on Help needed updating Gedcom::Date

    That was quick! I'll have a play with it. Thanx.
