the truth is that the development of po4a is kinda stopped since a few
years. We do the basic maintainance, like reviewing and applying
proposed patches (with some delays), but I don't manage to devote any
time to the new wanted features myself. I'm sorry about that, but this
is a fact.
As a result, I think that you should develop this module yourself. I
understand that Perl will make your brain burn as a Ruby programmer,
but at the end, developping a new module for po4a is very easy. And I
can guide you in this process if you go that way.
Check the doc on writing a new module, here:
I think that this is a good idea to keep both the upstream list and
the debian bug in CC while discussing it. It will ensure both a good
diffusion and a good archiving of the discussions.
Good luck, Mt.

Reject: Figure 3 is unclear. -- Bastard Reviewer From Hell
On a non-Debian distribution,
$ cpanm Locale::Po4a::Po
! Finding Locale::Po4a::Po on cpanmetadb failed.
! Finding Locale::Po4a::Po () on mirror http://www.cpan.org failed.
! Couldn't find module or a distribution Locale::Po4a::Po
That is inconvenient... Could you please put the po4a module on CPAN?
