Your subject mentions Date::Parse (which does have str2time()) but your body text says you want to report a bug in Date::Time::str2time, which doesn't exist in Date::Time.

The only change I can see making to perlbug[1] would be to suggest searching or instead of, both because isn't good at mapping module names to distribution names (except for the trivial s/::/-/g case), and because not all distributions track their issues on


[1] being the only part of the process p5p has any control over
