Re: Math::BigInt::GMP, Adding Alien::GMP As Dependency
Message ID:
Hi all,

I can do the necessary maintenance and roll out a release.  I'd also be 
happy to take a look at rt#120718 relating to @INC and testing.  Do you 
have a git/svn repository for this distribution? It would be useful to 
have the full development history of the project if possible.  If not I 
can import from CPAN.

I believe that we will need either TELS to add co-maint, or the PAUSE 
admins, so I am copying them.  If I am mistaken then I am happy for you 
to do it.
