in thread What to do when a module is no longer being maintained

We agree more than we disagree. Yes, the new module must be clearly labeled with a name such as BLIPC ("BlueLine's IP Chain") or something like that. Just as we have separate namespaces in XML and Perl, we need them in module names as well.

Moreover, BLIPC should clearly state what version of the original IP Chain it forked off of. But if BlueLine does the above then I really don't know what he is waiting for. Maybe there is a user today who needs his modified module, and next week will be too late.
