> Revoking approval. This issue needs further discussion.  

Ralf, I might be missing something here, but in claiming to revoke a properly
granted package approval I'm pretty sure you're way overstepping your
authority.  I clearly have a vested interest in this matter (given that this is
a package I submitted for review), but, absent actual malfeasance, I've never
seen anything like your behaviour here before.

I'm certainly happy to discuss the merits of this with you, preferably on
fedora-perl-devel-list, but Miroslav is correct: the module is (AFAICT)
fungible with core Fatal (except without respect to autodie); and if someone
doesn't want it, it's certainly not mandated.  I fail to see the impact here...
 Especially as:

"Fatal has been obsoleted by the new autodie pragma. Please use autodie in
preference to Fatal. autodie supports lexical scoping, throws real exception
objects, and provides much nicer error messages."
