The PHP::Serialization module on CPAN has been sat there for about 4 years with known bugs / patches in it's RT queue without a new release being put out. These bugs are critical in my use-case, and so I'm having to run a locally hacked version of the module (with some of the patches from it's RT queue added), not nice..
I emailed the maintainer of the module over a month ago about getting co-maint rights to apply some of these patches, and haven't heard anything back since.
Therefore, I'm posing a public notice that I intend to follow the module takeover procedure for unresponsive authors (http://www.cpan.org/misc/cpan-faq.html#How_adopt_module).
Rather than forcibly take over the module, if anyone knows the author of the module, can you please put me in touch with them so that I can get co-maint rights / we can get a new release with the obvious bugs fixed pushed out.
