05:56 < Ontolog> is use parent something specific to Catalyst? Assuming we did the right thing moving catalyst.pl from generating 'use base' to 'use parent' then the docs for parent need to be really clear that it's the new hotness and should be used for preference. I can get somebody to propose a POD patch if you want (it's 6am right now so I'm not gonna try just yet :) -- Matt S Trout Need help with your Catalyst or DBIx::Class project?

I'm no big fan of hyping a module. I think you/Catalyst did the right thing by switching over form base.pm to parent.pm still, because parent.pm avoids some of base's pitfalls. Show quoted text

Yes - as English is not my first language, I welcome docpatches to make things clearer. Thank you, -max

Right, but the docs need to explain to people -why- we did the right thing by switching, in clear words. Show quoted text
