Hi, The situation of YAML parser/dumper modules on CPAN is pretty confusing. This module's (seemingly old) documentation, as featured on its CPAN page, claims that "soon" it will be replaced with an interface-only module, and it will itself be made available as YAML::Old. YAML::Old exist, and *it's* documentation claims that this switch has happened at "the end of 2008". Yet, this module here ('YAML') still exists as a non-interface module, and has apparently continued to received bug fixes/features and new releases. What's up with that? Is this module now deprecated or not? Which YAML parser should a Perl application developer choose for new projects? If your plans have changed, can you please update the documentation to provide clarity? Regards, Sam
