Subject: Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated
With newer perls (5.21.x) using DateTime::Format::Duration is causing a warning "Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated". See http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/0f9fdc2c-89c4-11e4-a2cf-94e8e0bfc7aa for a sample report with this warning.

I've encountered this too - it makes it impossible to release any dependent modules under newer perls, because author-specific had-no-warnings tests fail. Are you still involved with perl development? If not, I'd be happy to fix this issue merge other fixes. My PAUSE id is ETHER.

Hi, just checking in again.. are you still interested in maintaining this distribution? If not, I'm able to do so.

Hi, pinging you one more time. Are you still around? I would like to formally request comaintainership of this module to fix the outstanding issues on newer perls.
