Hi Jon,

nice to see you around again :-)
(We worked together on SE Toolkit some time ago, btw I also made
a package for SE Toolkit which you may want to co-maintain)

I think it already is open for posting by anybody.

Ihsan: Is buildfarm@ moderated or subscribers only?

This sounds like you want to join the project and maintain some Perl
modules, excellent! We will need one email sent from your work email
address for identity verification (I already know you, but these are
the project rules...) and your ssh public key. Is your SF username
still jonbcraig ?

The Perl modulare are built with "GAR", please see
for an introduction. A built recipe is usually quite short, e.g.
The heavy lifting is all done in the GAR packaging framework.

Best regards
