I have numerous fixes for Apache::ASP including the one mentioned here.
I'd gladly pick up maintenance for Apache::ASP if Josh is willing to let 
me have it and is actually following this list.
Truth is I haven't heard from him since 20090328 when we were discussing 
a generic Apache::Session interface for state management.
I have this thing working in-house but numerous requests for comments on 
this very list went unanswered.
I naturally thought Apache::ASP is dead (at least for the rest of the 
world) and went along happily using our in-house version.
Said patch is rather large and (at the moment) ugly, but seems to work 
just fine.
I also have a patch for geany (version 0.18 sadly) to work with perl 
powered asp pages and a wordlist for ultraedit to do the same thing.
- Josh, if you're listening and feel like it, would you please resume 
maintaining Apache::ASP ?
- If you are listening but don't care, would you give co-maintainer 
status to someone ?
- If neither is happening, we'll either need to fork off some other 
namespace or have an unofficial distribution. I did the second one by 
accident once and it's not overly complicated, though instead of ``perl 
-MCPAN -e'install Apache::ASP''', one would need ``perl -MCPAN 
-e'install authors/W/WHOEVER/Apache-ASP-X.Y.Z''' or some such. It's 
certainly not the best solution, but it is workable.
