Hi all!

I did not introduce myself to the mailing list (depite having made some posts) 
so allow me to introduce myself briefly. My name is Shlomi Fish and I am a 
user, developer and advocate of Linux, Perl, and other Open Source 
technologies. You can learn more about my open source contributions here:


And about myself in general here:


You can also refer to my bio ( http://www.shlomifish.org/personal.html ) or to 
an introduction I made to the MIT Writers mailing list:


Now to the rest of my post. It is about Perl. First of all, please consult:

(and previously http://use.perl.org/~Shlomi Fish/journal/27467 )

For some of my reflections on my work on Test::Run, which is my fork of 

Especially of interest is my call for help at the bottom:

Finally, how you can help: first of all you can submit patches to the 
documentation to update it to the newer code. Or write new documentation for 
all them method extractions. Also, if you feel like refactoring one of the 
places which is still quite hairy - go for it. You can find the code in the 
Subversion repository. A few patches like that and you'll become a commiter. 

A second thing you can do is suggest ways in which you'd like to see Test::Run 
(or Test::Harness) enhanced or customised. You can create drivers now, but 
they may become broken even in the not-so-far future, as I didn't settle on 
the API and the Subclassing API yet. 

And last, but not least, if you find my effort noteworthy, please consider 
donating. The more money I receive by donations, the more financially-worthy 
it would be for me to work on Test-Run. If you make a donation drop me a note 
saying why you did it, so I can try to invest some more time on that 
particular cause.

(It would be a good idea to read the earlier parts of the posts first, 

Feel free to comment here or using the use.perl.org commenting system.

Thanks in advance,
