The 6-Month Ruling
Recently I have started going through all my CPAN modules one-by-one and getting any fixes that are in there out onto CPAN. Some have had bug fixes sitting in the repository for at least 1 year. Because of this, I’m thinking of giving myself a “6-month ruling” where I should probably release a new version of a module at least every 6 months. This should keep me from at least forgetting about publishing forgotten bug fixes in the repositories.
