       TASKS - Want to help? These things need doing...

       Increase test coverage

       More tests need to be added to test the codes that not urrently being
       tested.

       It's pretty poor right now:

          http://pjcj.sytes.net/cover/latest/DBI-1.52/coverage.html

       Start with improving the subroutine coverage

          http://pjcj.sytes.net/cover/latest/DBI-1.52/blib-lib-DBI-pm--subroutine.html

       Test the proxy

       The current t/80proxy.t is isolated from the rest of the test suite so
       actually tests very little, and what it does test is duplicating other
       tests.

       Ideally the proxy should be tested in the same way as DBI::PurePerl.
       In other words, by creating wrappers test files for each test file that
       set $ENV{DBI_AUTOPROXY} and run the original test. They'll also need to
       start and stop a proxy server.

       Fixing bugs

       The official bug list is here:

          http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=DBI

       Naturally I'll offer direction and guidance on any you want to tackle.
       I've also got a few that could be entered into rt.cpan.org.
