There is no #params anchor on that page, so I'm not sure what you're 
looking at.

This is documented under 
https://metacpan.org/pod/Dancer::Request#params-source, as you noted. 
Since that is the only section related to params on the entire page, I 
don't see the issue.

I see "-source" right there in the link: 
https://metacpan.org/pod/Dancer::Request#params-source. Am I missing 
something? I must be looking at a completely different page than you 
are. Or maybe I've just had too much to drink ;)
