Hello.

I ran to your project and it seems to be quite promising for my needs.
However since the project seems to be stalled for some months now I'd
like to ask if the project is alive anymore?

And beyond that, has anyone actually created an bot with this library?
I'm looking for a simple bot which could assist me with daily basis
(request trackers, RSS-feeds etc) so I could get rid of extra tabs on
my browser. But since it's going to be in heavy use I really need
something stable.

If someone can even share code for their bot I'd be more than glad to
see how and what this library can do. Hopefully your project gains
more activity again, atleast I wish to see the good start reach mature
state some day.

Hi, the project is in a stable state if you download it from CPAN. The
state in google code is in the midst of Moose conversion and I have
not completed it. As for examples, they are there in the examples
directory off the base of the distribution. I wrote one of them. To my
knowledge both of them have been successfully used. If anything, I'll
make a commitment to getting a working copy of the Moose version by
YAPC NA, which happens in June.

Let me know if you have any questions about useablitity. The whole
reason for this module was to make something complicated easy to do.
If it's not achieving this, let me know so I can make it better.

Thanks,
Todd

Thank you for your reply. I need to try the module and see what it can
do. Basically the idea I'm after is an enhancement to our web-services
(request tracker, calendar, task manager etc).

Now we receive notifications to email and that's more than a bit
annoying when there's lots of things to take care of and email account
is already filled with requests from clients.

So if the bot would notify us via jabber about new requests, bugs, tasks
etc and we could comment to them via jabber as well it'd be more than
nice ;)

But I'll try the library when I get some spare time and let you know
about the results.

FYI, I did a little work today and released the moose version of the
module. The major change is I changed the callback parameters on new
to hopefully be a little more clear. More fixes and enhancements to
come Probably not till YAPC though. The new version is 2.1.0
