Subject Re: What's going on with Embperl???

Embperl is already in a publicly readable cvs server, see CVS.pod in
your nearest Embperl source.  Daily snapshot tars, etc available too.

Embperl, being on CPAN, can use the bug tracker if needed.

Neither of these actually fix bugs - people fix bugs.  These tools are
useful if you have to coordinate a large number of bug reports and
patches coming in from all over the place - not something I see
happening with Embperl at the moment.  I would suggest such
contributions get mentioned on this list anyway, even if we had an
active bug tracking system.

Having said that, as Embperl Debian maintainer I'm very happy to
accept patches and coordinate bug reports through - even if you aren't a Debian user.
For people interested, the accumulated Debian patches are always
available as a separate .diff.gz against the pristine upstream source,
so should be easy for other people to integrate these patches too.

So, if you feel that Gerald is being unresponsive, you can pass your
bug fixes/reports on to me (via the embperl mailing list ideally) and
I should be able to do something useful with them.

From what I can see, the main thing holding up Embperl 2.0 is updated
documentation.  Patches cleaning up or consolidating the various bits
of HTML::Embperl 1.3, mid-Embperl2-development and final Embperl
documentation would be very useful.  When doing so, be aware that
Config.pod is automatically generated, so design your improvements
to that file accordingly.
