The HTML-Tree distribution has quite a history over the years:

• It was originally released by Gisle Aas (GAAS), who did releases in 1998 and 1999.
• It was then taken over by Sean Burke (SBURKE), who did 26 releases between 1999 and 2003.
• Andy Lester (PETDANCE) then did 5 releases in 2005 and 2006.
• PETEK did 3 releases in 2006
• Jeff Fearn (JFEARN) then did 7 releases between 2010 and 2011
• Christopher Madsen (CJM) did 18 releases between 2012 and 2014
• Jeff Fearn did one more release in 2017
• The last 4 releases were done by Kent Fredric (KENTNL), in 2017.

I suspect KENTNL was given first-come, as he had planned to continue doing releases.

Kent sadly died in a tragic accident earlier this year. When a CPAN author dies, any of their first-come permissions are converted to ADOPTME, and I think that’s how HTML::Tree ended up this way.

Peter (PETEK) and Christopher (CJM) both have co-maint.

If one of you two want to have the first-come permission on this, you have the clearest case. If not, you could let Robert take it. What say ye?
