Has the author been contacted to request adoption of this distribution?
That is part of the adoption process, unless it has already been
established that the author is missing or deceased.

All of Adam's distributions have already been imported from subversion to
github, e.g.: https://github.com/TheOpenRepository/File-Remove

Hi Philippe,

I did not say it was the optimal solution - but what brings the most
value? - live working code or broken unmaintained artefacts of yesteryear?

I have migrated a lot of Subversion repos to Github, some were in an
almost unmigratable state, due to bad decisions on repository layout and
gitpan saved these distributions and I could get back to active maintenance
instead of spending all my time trying to salvage history of old bug fixes.
The changes file and distribution release history provided sufficient
information to keep me happy and still draw the same picture of what was
released to the public via CPAN.

If possible, migrate - if time or other circumstances block - gitpan is an
alternative solution.

Happy New Year :-)
