Don't take CPAN for granted

CPANQuesthubacknowledgement Mon 22 July 2013

It's all too easy to take CPAN for granted, particularly the modules which just work, and continue to do so year in, year out. Take a moment to thank the author of one of your "go to" modules. I did: he seemed to like it, and it made me feel good too. There's a quest stencil for this on Questhub — give it a go.

It's easy to forget that every module on CPAN is the work of one or more perl programmers. People like you and me.

Pick one module to say thank you for:

Email the author or current maintainer and thank them. It doesn't need a long message, but be specific and make it personal.

You don't have to stop at one, but do one this week, and make a list of others for another time.
