Please consider adding up-to-date Perl binding info to the

perl-xml listserv activestate com 

  What about giving a full URL to the project page ? That would
help. Also did the maintainer changed ? XML::LibXML has been
around for a long long time, I don't recognize your name but I
think that's the 5th mail I get from you asking for this, so I
wonder what is going on ! Is that a zealotry case, some kind of
background change or a real missing information ? I have a hard
time guessing out !
  What info do you consider not uptodate ? pointers and details
please !




the current maintainer of the Perl bindings happens to be me. 
Currently refers to the bindigns at (a bit confusing by itself) as 

"Matt Sergeant developed XML::LibXSLT, a Perl wrapper for 
libxml2/libxslt as part of the AxKit XML application server."

Although this is true, none of the links provided currently points 
to something useful and moreover, the paragraph is probably hard to 
find. This is probably the reason behind Tom's postings.

I suggest the following changes, which should be more than 
sufficient for most users:

Remove the aforementioned paragraph, and instead add a link 

<a href="";>Perl bindings</a>

to the section Related links, along C++, Ruby, PHP, etc. at and a possibly another link

<a href="";>Perl libxslt 

to the section Related links (near XSLT with PHP) at

Thanks a lot and appologies to both you and Tom about not stepping 
in sooner.
