At the moment, there's only been 1 release of Alien::Dojo, and it's broken.
The author is happy to hand over maintenance of it.

The message mentioned above is here:
This is Yuval's resonse:
It seems a bit over-engineered to me, but Yuval is the man when it
comes to design, so I bow to him. Unfortunately, I don't have the time
to work on it - it's a minor issue for me, as it's so easy to manually
download the dojo-ajax release from the website.

As HTML-Widget-Dojo stands, I think the latest in subversion worked ok
with dojo v0.3.
Dojo v0.3.1 has since been released, so we need to check whether the
widgets we use have had incompatable changes.
I had posted a few bug reports - I'll need to search for them and see
if they've been addressed.

This thread also mentions a couple of issues that might still be outstanding.

Feel free to ask anything else.
Anything specific to HTML-Widget-Dojo should probably be on the H-W list though.
