Hi Charles,

Good to hear from you at last!

Over the last couple of years I have been working on a pure Perl
milter which uses the Sendmail::PMilter interface to Sendmail.

Sendmail::PMilter uses your module Sendmail::Milter, but for proper
operation of my milter (which makes use of version 6 of the milter
protocol) there are issues with both modules which need to be fixed.

There are also serious unfixed issues in the CPAN ticketing system
going back more than fifteen years.

I have fixed all the issues in my version of Sendmail::PMilter and I
am now the maintainer for that module.  In the absence of a reply from
you I created a module which I have for the moment called MilterV6.pm,
and at present I use this instead of Milter.pm (amongst other things
it contains new constants etc. required for full support of the milter
protocol version 6 API).

I have not yet published any of this.  It seems to me that it would be
better not to add MilterV6.pm to CPAN if I can update Milter.pm instead.

Kind regards,
Ged Haywood.
