Mice

I use this public list to track what Perl-related tasks (mice) i want to do (eat). If you want to find out which mice are likely up next, click on the “Top” filter. The list is public for these reasons:


  1. I can never decide what to do first, so people voting on this might help.
    Please vote on things you think i should do first! (Can be done anonymously!)
  2. So i can point people who end up going “Well volunteered!” at me to a place where they can write it down.
    Feel free to add new things!
  3. Sometimes people might think some of the stuff i want to do is interesting, and do it themselves.
    Let me know if you want to take a mouse for yourself!


In short: Feel free to volunteer me to eat mice!

Well volunteered!

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

      • win32 file test implementation in perl is broken, needs bug report

        http://perldoc.perl.org/perlport.html#Alphabetical-Listing-of-Perl-Functions

        -r, -w, -x are implemented in ways that are flat out broken and cause false positives, this needs to be written up in a way so unix people can understand it, and supplanted with proper test cases, then reported.

          • Publish git-garden, a module to visualize repo graphs

            What it does is: You point it at a github or fossil repo and it spits out this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10190786/simple.html

            Git-Garden currently lives in my github: https://github.com/wchristian/git-garden

            It languished a bit because i needed to wait for patches to Git-PurePerl to get on CPAN. Now i'm still waffling a bit about naming and other API details, i.e. should import/export modules be their own dists, should i use Module::Pluggable, etc.

            • Write a CPAN Tester reporting tool that can scrape test data from any slave process.

              Write a tool that can run any other tool as a child, and collect its output and use it as a CPAN TESTERS test report.

              ie: cpantester-reporter run cpanm -v Moose

              or even cpantester-reporter -e "perl ./Makefile.PL" -e "make" -e "make test"

              This could then by augmented and bolted on to almost any tool/suite that can install/test perl things, ie:
              Gentoo, where we can permit all users to run test.
              Debian, perhaps they could report test results during packaging.

              etc.

              Separating the test-reporting system from the install toolchain makes this way more useful, just implementing that sucker is the hard…

              • Make sure OpenGL.pm works fine on Win32

                Ensure it can install and run fine on 5.10, 5.12, 5.14 x AP, SP, Cygwin x WinXP, Win7. Ensure it can do occlusion detection. Let Chris Marshall know of any warts i notice. Fork it onto github.

                • Make Web::Simple's dispatch able to deal with generated route signatures

                  Right now Web::Simple's dispatch can only handle route signatures passed in as prototypes, which means they're hard-coded and icky. There should be a sane way to API this up to allow the signatures to be passed in as strings. I'll have to look into that.

                                  • Write a Perl::Critic Policy for various List::* packages

                                    There's an unfortunate thing that can happen with some List::* packages and thats some of the list-operating functions ( ie: all, any , first ) have a nice little bug where to can not actually pass it a list and be blissfully unaware of this.

                                    ie:

                                    return any { foobar( $_ ) }

                                    A cursory glance suggests "Sure, that works", when in fact, any will iterate over an empty list seeing if foobar($_) returns true for any of them.... guess thats not very good.

                                    Its a bit hard to solve this problem without LOTS of dark XS magic and even…
