I think attack is some kind of request. Maybe it is too far similarity.

I do not think that it was frozen since its creation. I guess they
updated it to newer versions.

I just picked random perl file
(request-tracker4/etc/upgrade/ from
request-tracker and read it. At the beginning it contains:

use 5.8.3;
use strict;
use warnings;

It is promising. Thought Perl 5.8 was released in 2002 but 'grep -r
"use 5"' says that only two files have such line. In general other
contents of that file does not seem strange for me. So I think this is
not too old perl. Do not I miss something?
