I follow it, and I saw that post, but I have forty packages, and I'm not
sure offhand if any of them have Perl dependencies strict enough to warrant
changes for Perl 5.8. At that particular time, I didn't really read all of
it because I was busy with other things. But I can assure you that I would
have cast other things aside to look closely at this if the post said "Your
package <something> is <something>".
Writing a direct mail is socially less error-prone, and technically
absolutely trivial, so I see no reason not to do it.
