Fwd: Test::Spelling Adoption Request
Message ID:
Hi Jesse & Shawn,

I’m writing this wearing my PAUSE admin hat.

Hi Jesse & Shawn,

Chase Whitener (CAPOEIRAB) would like to get co-maint on Test::Spelling, so he can fix some issues — see below message.

Jesse has first-come on this module, but Shawn did most of the releases, which is why I’m emailing both of you. I’ve also copied Ivan, the original author of Test::Spelling.

Chase is a pretty experienced CPAN author:

If you’re happy for him to have co-maint, I can grant this on your behalf Jesse.

> heard back from him. I have not reached out to the other co-maint

> on the maintenance thus far.
> There are some open issues and PRs as well as the spelling on Windows
> issue I'd like to work on. Between myself and the few others that have
> expressed a desire to have a few things fixed in the dist, I'm
> confident we could keep it maintained without breaking things.
> Thanks,
> Chase
