On the suggestion of brian d foy at CPAN I'm resending this request
so that we can resolve the situation sooner rather than later.
I was wondering if you have any interest in releasing a new version
of MARC::Record  to CPAN from CVS on SourceForge . There hasn't
been a release since Dec 2004 but development has continued afoot
The reason I ask is that the Evergreen people  have spent the last
2 years building an open source ILS for the State of Georgia  and
they are dependent on some functionality that is in the CVS trunk.
Their install process is a bit stymied because the M::R on CPAN is
way out of date. I also get routine emails from M::R users around the
world who don't understand why the latest/greatest isn't on CPAN.
Evergreen isn't alone: the Koha opensource library system also relies
on heavily on MARC::Record. If you aren't interested in this I (or
possibly someone at ESILibrary) would be willing to take over
ownership of the module--or at least co-ownership so that updates can
be pushed out to the CPAN world at large.
Let me know what you think.
