Hi to all, Matt, thank you for approving the request! I'm going to release Perl implementation for Google's protocol buffers under name Google::ProtoBuf, and if you have objections or better names - it's not too late.Currently, I'm working on documentation (pod is attached), 540-tests suite says ok and I'm going to release in the beginning of the week. There are 2 more or less similar projects - Protobuf-PerlXS, http://code.google.com/p/protobuf-perlxs/, Project is ready, no CPAN distribution and name conflict is expected, because this project makes XS wrappers for C++ user-named classes (C++ code of the classes is generated by Google's IDL translator, protoc). Protobuf-Perl, http://code.google.com/p/protobuf-perl/Project is in alpha stage, no CPAN distribution is expected as it's going to be code generator for the official Google's IDL translator.The namespace used internally is 'Protobuf'. If you have suggestions/opinions, please share! (I'm going offline till Monday, so I wouldn't answer immediately, sorry). Have a good day, regards,Igor Gariev. > Date: Sat, 18 Oct 2008 15:53:24 +0100> From: email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Welcome to PAUSE! - also pointers to the protobuf-perl project> > Welcome to PAUSE!
