I would certainly hate to see mod_perl no longer being maintained. I use it as a front-end for a library cataloging system that is very much alive, in-use and updated with recent HTML, CSS and JavaScript features. Rewriting this front-end in some other language would be a huge undertaking and would not provide much benefit because Apache + Perl + mod_perl not only do the job but do it extremely well.

While I don't understand what type of time commitment would be required, I would be happy to add my name to the bottom of any list should others have a strong desire to hold such a position.

Dear community members,

As projects mature, they will naturally reach a point where activity reduces to a level such that the project is no longer sustainable.  At Apache, projects reach this stage when there are not at least 3 active PMC members providing oversight. Projects that reach this stage are usually placed in the Attic [1] or absorbed by another Apache project willing to manage its releases.

If you are interested in seeing mod_perl remain an active project, and are able to help maintain and provide oversight, please respond in this thread indicating that you are interested in performing the duties of a PMC member[2].
