Re: [perlguitest] Notice: My probable/indefinite reprieve from this project.
- Hi All and specially Dennis,
I am new to the list and while I sent already two messages for some reason
they did not get through. Maybe this one will not make to the list
I found out about Win32::GuiTest only recently but could already include
it in a class where I was teaching automated testing with Perl. Everyone
was really enthusiastic about it. It would be really sad if development of
this project halted now.
I actually don't understand your reasoning, maybe this is due to being
new in this list so excuse me for saying this.
If Ernesto has indeed disappeared I think it would be the time for you
- as probably the most suitable person - to take over the development
of the module. At least temporarily, till Ernesto comes back.
- I am resending this as the previous one disappeared...
sorry if you will receive it twice.
