String::Strip 1.02 enroute to a CPAN mirror near you

Steffen from modules@perl.org responded to my email yesterday and made me a co-maintainer of String::Strip. I've applied the 64 bit bug fix to it, and pushed 1.02 to CPAN. Thanks for everyone who responded to my thread yesterday about requesting co-maintainer. This is how open source is supposed to work!

Request sent for String::Strip comaintainership

String::Strip has a problem on 64 bit environments, and a release has not been made in over 10 years. I have sent an email to modules@perl.org asking for COMAINT as the author has apparently not been responding to RT tickets.

If anyone sees this post and has the magic powers to make this happen, I'd be very appreciative if they could help out.
