I'm asking to fix Number::Format to keep working
Message ID:

Hi!  I'm Rik, one of the members of the Perl Steering Council, and I'm on the hook for releasing the next version of perl, v5.38.0, "pretty soon."  Changes to locale handling in the last year have broken Number::Format <>,  I'd really like to avoid having Number::Format broken on our new Perl, and so I'm hoping we can get a fixed build shipped to the CPAN ASAP.  A patch has been submitted on GitHub <>.

It looks like you're not working on this code anymore, and I don't need you to come out of retirement — but you can if you want!  Alternatively, I'm happy to apply the minimum fix and ship it.  Further alternatively, I'm happy to take over maintenance for a while, as it looks like there's a pileup of some other issues.

Please let me know how you'd like to proceed!  If you want *me* to do a release, you can update permissions in PAUSE or you can just reply.  I've cc'd the admins, who can then update permissions.
