MIA Japanese CPAN authors

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

Hi

I'm hoping someone can help me find a couple of Japanese CPAN authors who have gone missing in action. I have patches / fixes on their modules, and I'd like to get them reviewed / applied, or I'm happy to take comaint if the authors concerned are no longer around / maintaining them.

I've started the module adoption procedure by mailing modules at perl dot org, and I'm posting here as a public notice, hoping someone will point it out to the authors concerned. So, without further ado, here are the modules I'd like to adopt/fix:

If anyone reading knows these authors, please point them at this post, or get them to email me!

Thanks in advance

    If you have patches that fix bugs, have you posted them to the RT queues of their modules (or whatever other bug tracker the modules specify)? Even if you donÄt get into contact with the authors, your patches may point others in the direction of where problems are to be expected.

    Clicking through to IKUTA's github account reveals activity as recently as 8 days ago. Have you tried contacting him through his github inbox?

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
