Planning to use Net::Gnats
     posted by relberger, Wed 06 Aug 2014 02:36:01 AM UTC

The original author of Net::Gnats has transferred maintainer status to me since it is planned that the next version of Gnatsweb will be leveraging this module.

By using Net::Gnats, we look forward to decoupling the protocol code from the web client.

Quite frankly, I have found that the current gnatsweb lacks the sufficient framing to make anything more useful out of it.  Managing it as a monolithic perl CGI script just is not working out.

2. Move the functionality directly to Mojolicious without making a 'cleanup' release
3. Release the next version as a 'like for like' replacement

Due to the enormous number of Perl coding "issues" with gnatsweb,pl, a major cleanup will occur to baseline the code to something a bit more manageable.

Will be using as a way to monitor critic issues over time.  Feel free to peruse that link and post discussion with regards to the criticism worthiness.

Would like to know the users out there using gnatsweb -

Some changes to gnatsweb are being considered that may cause some concern for those who have highly customized it.

Also, there will be some new guidelines set for Perl and Browser support.

Please post to the Technical Support Manager with your concerns or wishes.
