The Perl 5 Porters are responsible for maintaining and advancing the 
Perl 5 core distribution.  mod_perl does not ship with the core 
distribution.  It's maintained upstream on CPAN.  It's README is located 

 From that README I cite:

*** Support ***

For comments, questions, bug-reports, etc., join the mod_perl users
list by sending mail to

When reporting bugs please follow the instructions at:

For announcements join the mod_perl announce list by sending mail to

*** Developers ***

Development discussion takes place on dev (at)

So it would probably be best to first pursue discussion at those locations.

Thank you very much.
