Be a Perl hero. Take over Net::SSH::Perl & Net::SFTP

So a while back I foolishly took over maintenance of these modules. Unfortunately, they're big and complicated, and they don't have very much in the way of tests. My lack of tuits means that I haven't done very much with them.

But these modules get a lot of use, and there are bug reports piling up. So if you want to be a Perl hero and take these over, let me know. I think many people will thank you. I'm happy to help with advice and suggestions, but I just don't have time to write the code (particularly the test suite) that is needed.

Contact me at autarch {AT}

    Aside from the test suite and the bugs in RT, do you know of any other problems that need to be solved? I'm thinking about taking up your offer, but I want to make sure I'm up to the task first.


      Way to go Sam! And what do you mean by, "up to the task", you did take on Bric :).
      Nothing that I know of. The big problem for me has been that it's a fairly large, complex code base, but it has almost no tests. Coverage is really, really low.
