Moved older projects from googlecode/svn to github

I've moved Autodia and Maypole to github so that it's easier to share or hand over, and make the development more open and interactive.

Hopefully this means that if somebody wants to take the ball and run with it by taking over Maypole it should be pretty easy to handover, also I may be able to start giving people the ability to patch, or make pull requests to my autodia repo - I've been astonished at how smooth github makes this :)

Tidying up my old CPAN code

I've just decided to spend a couple of hours tidying up my CPAN projects - surprising how little you can get done in an evening if you let things slip.. on the plus side, I've made a start and cleaned things up a bit :

  • Autodia page on my personal site now updated to point to latest version on metacpan, and files to svn trunk
  • Several bugs marked resolved, and updated, spam delete in rt.cpan.org
  • Emailed Smylers about consolidating the various GraphViz::DBI forks on cpan using some shared co-maint and github (anyone else interested give me a buzz)
  • Tidied up Graphviz::SQL and Math::Curve::Hilbert a bit and put them in github.

My Plan is to mark any bugs older than 5 years or for very old version of my cpan modules as stalled or won't fix and then get on top of what's left - all my CPAN modules are being moved into github too.

No code written this evening, but definitely useful time spent.
