Subject: - primary maintainer wanted!
Message ID:
Hi Everybody,

Want a chance for fame and fortune? Then don't miss this fantastic
opportunity to become primary maintainer of the acclaimed module!

Seriously, though. Even though CGI has been superseded by many fantastic
modules (Catalyst, Plack), it is still widely used and generates a low but
steady stream of bug reports and questions (1 or 2 per month). Mark
Stosberg has been doing a fantastic job maintaining CGI for the past few
years, but he's now moving on to a job that doesn't involve Perl CGI
scripting and needs to give up primary maintenance of the module.

Although I'm the original author of the module, I've been working as a full
time computational biologist for years now and can no longer maintain the
module I wrote as a grad student 20 years ago. Ricardo Signes and I will be
co-maintainers, but we do need a primary maintainer to take the lead on
responding to patches and bug reports submitted to CGI's GitHub site (

If you are interested on taking this on, please contact me.
