PAUSE doesn’t let these situations occur now, but we have some historical cases. I’m sorting these out so that we don’t need code in the toolchain for dealing with permissions conflicts.

Given that you both have permissions on both modules, and Ilya seemed happy with the proposal, but I haven’t had any reply from Thomas, I’m going to go ahead and just drop all permissions on the older MP3::TAG::ID3v1 and MP3::TAG::ID3v2 modules.

If you subsequently decide you want to do something different, just let me know and I’ll help you get that done.
