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.
