PRC 2016 - Second Trimester
This second semester got me modules owned by well known community members. I expected that to make my life easier, namely to prepare more relevant PRs, but unfortunately it did not work that way.
For April, I got Dist::Zilla. My PR was the documentation of 'Dist::Zilla::App::Tester', but I never got any comment: https://github.com/rjbs/Dist-Zilla/pull/543
For May, I got WWW::xkcd. For this I could get an answer about what might be a relevant PR. I added a method to fetch random comic strips. I even got some comments, and I adapted my PR. But it not got merged: https://github.com/xsawyerx/www-xkcd/pull/5
For June, I god Gedcom. This one was harder to understand and find where to do changes. I found a TODO file, and got for the simpler task (clean up Makefile.PL). I prepared the PR, and offered myself for other fixes, given the author could give me some feedback on them. Unfortunately no comment was received: https://github.com/pjcj/Gedcom.pm/pull/17
Finally, for June I got one of my own modules assigned to a PRC player. I did what I expected others would do to my PR: comment on it, or merge. Well, I commented, asking to rebase based on another branch, but I never got an answer: https://github.com/ambs/Text-BibTeX/pulls
I confess all this makes me sad. It gives the impression that module authors are not willing to help making their own modules better. And probably, a lot of PRC players just want to prepare a PR, with no desire on working it to fit the module/author goals.
In any case, I am waiting for my July assignment.
Note 1: I am not against any of the authors above. Really! I poked some of them (well, all of them) and i just not continued poking because I am sure they will look to the PR sooner or later. So, please, bear with my English, but this is not complaining, just a report.
Note 2: Thanks to rjbs who merged the Dist::Zilla PR.
