Coro (6.08) ****

All modules that uses Coro will segfault if You try to use them. After talking to author of Coro You will learn that it is a feature - not a bug.

a code that is written by not stupid human usually says that there is not enough memory (a example). Coro, EV, etc prefer to crash (segfault) instead usually behavior: You can waste a lot of time to understand that the library requires to do something against to read normal error report.

So I join one previous review: "Author is not very nice"
but don't join that: "the module is great".

code that segfaults if You try to step to the left or the right from example can't be great.

Mojolicious (1.15) *****

Great framework!

I've found a few troubles: all they were fixed immediately or in short time period.

Author always responses, adds test for each issue comment etc.

DBD-Pg (2.17.2) *

The module has many unresolved memory leaks. I've discussed (I sought a version without the problem) the question in a few maillists (for ex. there are a lot of people say there that memory leak is a permanent property of the module.

Also the module has unfinished async mode. You cannot process a few operations in non-blocking mode, for example: connect. It's a pity that such low level driver is in such oppressing status.
