Hi Everyone,

I have been working on resolving various Catalyst::Manual tickets and
getting a long-overdue release of the manual & tutorial out.  I wanted to
get some input on a few of the tickets if i could:

1) #47363: Remove References to Old/New Ways of Doing Things

I took a look at some of these but I wasn't sure if I should start changing
things or not.  It seems that every time I don't cover variation people
might run into if they aren't on the latest/recommended versions, then they
get "stuck" and frustrated.  I agree that the "Note that if you are using
version XX of XX you ..." stuff can be distracting, but it seems like a
necessary evil (unless the issue is *really* old... I do try to eventually
prune those out).  Thoughts?

2) #31164: Catalyst::Manual::Cookbook mod_perl configuration incorrect?

I'm not really a mod_perl user.  Can anyone confirm if these changes are
correct?  Here is the patch:

when run within mod_perl. This makes the configuration extremely easy.
Here is a basic Apache 2 configuration.

- PerlSwitches -I/var/www/MyApp/lib
- PerlModule MyApp
+ <Perl>
+ use lib '/var/www/MyApp/lib';
+ use MyApp;
+ </Perl>

<Location />
SetHandler modperl

3) #50953: missing information: action with various args numbers

User asks "what If I want to accept with 0, 1 or 2 but not anymore arguments
than that?"... my understanding is that you can specify an exact number of
:Args or omit it for any number, but not do a range of acceptable args.  Can
anyone confirm if this is correct?
