The reason that I was asking this was that Gabor has started working on CPAN::Forum again. I have said that I might be able to lend a hand, but first I need some idea of what Gabor is thinking about future developments.
Since it is almost 5 years since the last time any work was done on the page it seemed natural for me to reevaluate the modules used in development. If future developments can be done faster with DBIx::Class than without it, a switch is something that could be considered. Regardless if the page works as it is. But that is up to Gabor to decide.
When it comes CGI::Application, I have no problem with that. It is what I use at work, so better for me if I end up helping out.
