the IO dist
Message ID:
There has been no stable CPAN release of IO since v1.25, May 2009.

It has changed many times in core since then.  Currently it is v1.36, last
updated in v5.23.4.

Today on #p5p on IRC, Paul Evans suggested that he wanted to make improvements
to IO::Poll.  I'd love to unblock that, if the problem is getting CPAN releases

Todd Rinaldo suggested that maybe we should stop treating IO as dual-life, as
it might break things if released now, and that it might make more sense to
only get a new IO(::File) when you upgrade perl.

I don't have a horse in this race, but if we want to get a new IO dist
released, we should just do it:  make a dev release (there have been some over
the past years), test it, and release it after a test period.

Opinions, please.
