Hi all,

installing https://metacpan.org/release/TimeDate from CPAN while running tests
has become broken - https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=124509 . Its
maintainer - https://metacpan.org/author/GBARR didn't make a release of any of
his distros since July 2017 and had no github activity for at least a year -
https://github.com/gbarr . Graham, are you there?

I suggest making an emergency update release with the fix to the test file, and
if no one better volunteers instead, I volunteer to receive COMAINT on all the
TimeDate namespaces (see https://metacpan.org/release/TimeDate ) and fix bugs,
apply patches, etc. I am https://metacpan.org/author/SHLOMIF on CPAN.

Are there any better suggestions?
