[RANT] Should we try to keep compatibility with old perl5s?
Message ID:
Hi all!

This post is a little flamebait, so please try to keep the discussion civil.

Anyway, after reading the discussion in this public github issue, and following
some of the links (especially ),
do you think I was being unreasonable, or should I as a CPAN
author/maintainer/adopter accommodate for people running old perl5s, in my case
5.10.x and below:

This reminds me of what chromatic wrote here - :

This is why we can't have nice things.

Any comments or opinions? I think I'll relax by watching a nice and fun video.
