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 email@example.com 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.
This post was a good first step. You'll want to read up here for details on the entire process of this though: http://pause.perl.org/pause/query?ACTION=pause_04about#takeover
Thanks for the suggestions. I just emailed the author, and the address on his CPAN page bounced back.
He hasn't been active on CPAN for about 12 years, and the other tickets have gone unresponded. So I am hopeful that the CPAN gods will grant me the comaint bit so I can release a maintenance release there.
The FAQ (already linked to by Mithaldu) seems to be saying you need to write to firstname.lastname@example.org and bug them about it there.
I say "seems to", because it's the kind of writing where they really don't want to tell you what you need to do, because they'd rather you found another solution besides bugging them.
Time for Any::String::Trim? Probably only take me 30 minutes to put up there, but the problem is getting that 30 minutes.
In the interest of keeping the namespaces as clean as possible, if what you are trying to do is update the existing on, you really should just get the comaint bit, rather than uploading something else. Unless of course, you are going to change the scope or the API that is.
I pushed 1.02 to my github repository, and added a link to the ticket. This fixes the issues on 64 bit platforms.
I'll push to CPAN if I am granted COMAINT.
