perigeeV has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I admin at a brick and mortar that's soon to become a statistic. As the Keeper-of-Secrets I have had to keep a low profile regarding intellectual property. Since the edge of the cliff is getting near I have begun to wonder about the ability to publicly post code. I'm no wizard, but I may have a few things worthy of CPAN.

The problem I forsee is that I have little time available to me now, and I don't see that changing in the future. I don't want to put up a module and then immediately abandon it. I feel I would have responsibility to maintain code with my name on it. So I ask all you CPAN authors: how much time and resources does your spawn require of you?

Of course all of this presupposes that the masses would come running for the powerful magic I upload :)
