PAUSE: Request co-maint for vars::i
Message ID:
Dear PAUSE Admins,

Can you give me co-maint for *vars::i* please? This was written by *D. H.* (
*PODMASTER*), and last released in *Nov. 2003*.

I emailed *D.H.* on *Mar. 28*, and again 2 weeks later, but haven't had any
reply. I tried to track him down via Internet searches but without success.
Searching by initials is hard! I've cc'd him on this email.  Also, his last
release was in Jan. 2005.  Back in 2011, someone else tried to find him
without success - see link in the previous message.

I've cloned the github repo and have fixed the open bug in RT. If I get
co-maint, I'll release my fixed version, and also add metadata for the repo
and license type, and tidy up the Changes file.  My next release is
currently on CPAN as Acme::CXW::vars::i, and the matrix is green.

My PAUSE id is CXW.

Thanks for considering this request!

I am following up on my email below.  Would you accept a contribution to
fix the captioned issue in vars::i?  I would be happy to do the release if
you don't have time.  Would you please let me know either way?  Thank you!

PAUSE admins,

and , Podmaster appears to have
dropped off the map.  Do you happen to have any alternative contact info?
