Hello Shawn,

sorry for the late response. I'm CCing module-authors becase you did not
explicitly specify that you wish this reply to be kept private.

people often need to reboot for new kernel / new libc / system update /
etc. or they need to restart their browsers because they either crashed or
started consuming too much RAM (and as you may know - browsers like Firefox
or GChromium have recently become memory hogs).

I suppose I can convert to use GitHub Issues / GitLab Issues / Bitbucket
Issues / etc. - at least for my own CPAN distributions - but this will
involve a lot of manual tweaking and uploading new versions. Perhaps it
will be the last straw for creating my own Dist Zilla PluginBundle.
