I'm the current maintainer for Mail::Sender

I'd like to ask that the current version on PPM be updated to match the current, deprecated version of Mail::Sender out on the CPAN. The release currently in PPM is an older release that contains a bug that ActiveState users have to patch.

Ideally, nobody should be using Mail::Sender at this point in time as Email::Sender (and Email::Stuffer) exist to make your life easier. However, I'd prefer to update the PPM version of Mail::Sender to the one that has this particular known bug corrected.

If I'm in the wrong place for such a request, please accept my apologies as I'm not aware of best practices with regard to ActiveState.

I've posted a bug request for this update. Note: Updates won't get applied for repositories (like 5.14) that have already been frozen.
