I've seen responses from Adam, Fred and Philippe (and obviously
myself), and also Philip and Perrin in a previous role call, although
the latter two declared themselves no longer active.

So it seems like we have enough active PMC members to survive,
although actual activity is somewhat lacking: I've still not found
anyone to test the obvious "fix" for the current build-breaking change
in the upcoming perl 5.34.0 on *nix (see

I'm proposing to disable a piece of code that no longer compiles,
without knowing what it was trying to do... :-/ On Windows it still
builds and passes tests as expected, but there may be some other
problem that I've not uncovered yet and/or it may not work at all on
*nix, where we have different MPMs and threading options.

Any help on testing this from people who would like to see mod_perl
survive would be greatly appreciated.
