    To install cperl using plenv you need to first install IO::Socket::SSL. For example using cpanm: cpanm -n IO::Socket::SSL Then install cperl with: plenv install -j 4 -Dusedevel -Dusecperl --as cperl-5.22.1 I wrote small script to automate most of it....

    After waiting 12 years and seeing parrot going down with the same people problems convinced me that you need to call the bad apples the bad apples.

    And no, the problem will not go away with a new maintainer, the top…
