Importing of http://bugs.musicbrainz.org/ticket/2941
Happens only at the start of a line (see http://test.musicbrainz.org/release/3234a2f6-abfa-42d9-9502-ecb73334dc98/annotation )
Unless https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=27850 gets resolved there's nothing we can do
Shouldn't we just leave this open and await the downstream bug being fixed?
Judging by the fact that all the bugs there have been open for years, I don't think we're going to see that happen
Then is there another non-dead library we could be moving to? There are always options, even if unpalatable and a waste of time I agree that there are plenty more important things to spend time on; but the practice of closing obvious bugs (even if caused by a library) strikes me as a bit odd. Having open tickets is easier to search for and reference people to if they complain, for a start.
Nothing that supports the same syntax. We would either have to change syntax, or write our own parser. To me, neither of these are feasible options.
We can re-open it, but I'm unassigning it because I can't work on it.
Completely understand that!
I suggest Markdown syntax everywhere.
It will manage URLs too but maybe the only pb. is that you have to surround them by <http://my.url> (simplest URL).
You can alternatively also have named URLs etc. [this is my website](http://my.url), or see ref.#1[ref1], it's a named reference.

Markdown gets a -1 from me and doesn't fix this ticket anyway.
I've requested to adopt this package on CPAN.
I now have co-maint and will apply luks' suggestions when I get a chance.
Moving to 2012-08-20 release as we are now in freeze for 2012-08-06.
In beta testing.
Er, how is this (and the others) in beta testing? We're in freeze.
Wait, never mind, this is entirely dependencies, so I see. Still probably shouldn't have updated those dependencies after freeze though.
The dependencies had already been updated on beta, I just hadn't updated this ticket.
