Hello all,

If no one else wants to, I'm willing to take over TimeDate and stay on top of the issues going forward.

I also have some extra bandwidth right now to get another release out ASAP. I've tested the patch from RT and it does seem to do the trick.

Thanks for the update, Graham! So: does anyone else want ownership of TimeDate?

Hi all,

installing https://metacpan.org/release/TimeDate from CPAN while running
tests has become broken -
https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=124509 . Its maintainer -
https://metacpan.org/author/GBARR didn't make a release of any of his
distros since July 2017 and had no github activity for at least a year -
https://github.com/gbarr . Graham, are you there?

I suggest making an emergency update release with the fix to the test file,
and if no one better volunteers instead, I volunteer to receive COMAINT on
all the TimeDate namespaces (see https://metacpan.org/release/TimeDate )
and fix bugs, apply patches, etc. I am https://metacpan.org/author/SHLOMIF
on CPAN.

Are there any better suggestions?
