My name is Leonard Miller (olegm on irc), and I gave a beginner's talk
on CGI::APP in Chicago, and I learned in at the CGI::App BOF, that there
were a number of things we needed/wanted to change about CGI::App.
While I am new to the project and this team, it felt that as a group,
some direction was needed, and some decisions needed to be made. I am
writing this, to prompt discussion for the direction and decisions.
One of the things we talked was to create a startup script similar to
Catalyst, that will get you working quickly with CGI::App. Along with
that, we were looking to create a bundle/package that would hold all
that CGI::App needs for a new installation.
I know that there was conversation on the listserv about
Module::Starter::Plugin::CGIApp, and I wanted to make sure that the
concerns of those who wanted the starter script were addressed.
The last the we came up with was to come up with a new/better name. I
have several names although they are not all mine, I would like to post
them here and start some discussion:
SWAP - Simple Web Application Platform
SWAF - ... Framework
Thank you for listening, please let me know what you think on these
issues. I will be away from the keyboard for the next two days, so I
will hear all your comments on Sunday.
