Readline package
Message ID:
Hi fellow Rakuists,

I’m a total Raku n00b, and I’m looking for guidance. The late Jeff 
Goff‘S Readline package doesn’t work on Macs anymore, which makes Rakudo 
Star kind of broken in Apple-land — at least it is when installed via 

I have a patch written, but don’t know whether to ask PAUSE to transfer 
the package maintainership to me, fork it (as Term::Readline or 
somesuch)... or something else.

It’s not a hugely complex package, and I can see myself maintaining it. 
(I’m currently on the core team of a moderately popular Node.js package, 
so I know the drill.)

I read about Jeff, and he seems like an amazing person. So I want to be 
very respectful.

Please let me know what you think is best.

Daniel Lathrop

p.s. it already feels great to be in the Raku community. Everyone is so 
darn nice.
