All up to date AFAIK (and I am subscribed to the daily updates from CPAN
Updates <firstname.lastname@example.org>), apart from
libinline-octave where I am a few days behind.
They are also in decent conditions. All open bugs on my Perl packages, i.e.
that are still open are open because upstream doesn't say a word anymore. No
Debian issues on them.
But as you say: there is no need to re-release them just to get a new
maintainer in. But as you guys are closer to the new developments in Perl
land, could you maybe 'think' of these as virtually adopted? I.e. if
something new is needed, tell me, and if I don't react (I think I have a
decent record of responsiveness from my nine years as a maintainer), feel
free to adopt.
That would apply to all my Perl packages apart from the ones I happen to
maintain/author upstream (libfinance-yahooquote-perl, beancounter, smtm).
How does that sound?
The relationship between the computed price and reality is as yet unknown.
