Hi Craig,

I was wondering if you’d had any success with this? I’ve just pushed out another PDL::FFTW3 and it would be great to sort out the dependencies better by using the Alien package.

Best regards,
Ed

Hi Craig,

If you send an email to modules@perl.org<mailto:modules@perl.org> they might be able to help as well (make sure you let them know what you’re after: handing over first-come vs making a co-maint).

Else, let me know if I can assist otherwise!

Best regards,
Ed

Interesting.  PAUSE isn’t letting me in.  Might be a day or two to sort it out.

Weird, I totally didn’t see that the first three times I looked at it.

OK, transfer complete.  I’ll have a look at CPAN next.

Hey, Ed, you’re mohawk2, aren’t you?

Hi Craig,

Hope you’re keeping well.

Could I ask you to either add me (ETJ) as co-maint on Alien::FFTW3, or possibly even transfer “first-come” over to me? I see there are 3 versions on BackPAN and none at all on current CPAN.

I also see you accepted a PR in 2016, but didn’t release it (last BackPAN version is from 2013). How would you feel about transferring https://github.com/drzowie/Alien-FFTW3 to PDLPorters (or if that’s complicated, to my GitHub (mohawk2) and I then move it over)?

My motivation is I want to update PDL::FFTW3, and the current strategy of forcing a dependency on IPC::Run in order to avoid a dependency on an Alien package isn’t best practice anymore, especially if the intention was to avoid unnecessary dependencies!

Best regards,
Ed
