  http://www.yapc.org/index.html should contain a list of previous YAPCs

Hi.

The YAPCs' site -http://www.yapc.org/index.html - should contain a list of
previous YAPCs with links. It doesn't at the moment, and it's annoying,
because I cannot find the previous YAPCs.

Regards,

Shlomi Fish

Does anyone know if the ActiveState perl mailing list are still intact? I haven't received any digests in several weeks and looking at the archives online shows no messages since mid-July.

  White Camel Nomination :: Gabor Szabo (szabgab)         


Author: Shlomi Fish
Date: Jun 3, 2008 13:48

Hi!

I'd like to nominate Gábor Szabó (the Hugarian-Israeli Perl programmer, not
the Jazz musician) for his contributions to the Israeli and Global Perl
Communities. See:

* http://www.szabgab.com/

* http://search.cpan.org/%%7Eszabgab/

Gabor Szabo is responsible for the fact that the Israeli Perl community, and
that of other dynamic languages has took off. So far he:

1. Set up an alternate mailing list, which proved to be more active -
[email protected]perl.org.il.

2. Set up a tradition of monthly Israeli Perl meetings, which have turned out
to be popular.

3. Organised 3 YAPC::Israel conferences - YAPC::Israel::2003,
YAPC::Israel::2004 and YAPC::Israel::2005 and an OSDC::Israel conference -
OSDC::Israel::2006.

4. He helped organise the Hungarian Perl Workshops in Hungary, and a Hungarian
YAPC.

  perl usage page on wiki         


Author: Aaron Trevena
Date: May 22, 2008 07:42

hi all,

I've added a stub page giving perl usage metrics on the wiki at :
http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?usage_statistics

it would be really cool, if anybody could add more links, etc.

I've collected many of my thoughts on how Perl needs to move forward.

I think this is a bit oversimplified. These things can and do take resources from each other, whether we like to admit it or not. That taking of resources can leave a better final state than when we began, but at a cost.

Oh, god, someone did a bad thing and forwarded me an email from this
infernal list that I had been blissfully unsubscribed to for...well,
a really long time now. In spite of having given birth and spending
the past 18 months being a mum I have not completely lost my
character so those who are sensitive to my usual missives should
probably brace yourselves.

Firstly, I have waited for a very long time for maintainers to step
up for a number of things, including the history project. Perhaps I
should write a manual with RULE NUMBER ONE: DON'T INSULT THE PROJECT
YOU ARE WANTING TO ASSUME CONTROL OF AND CLAIM YOU TRIED TO GET IN
TOUCH WITH ONE OF THE MOST EASILY FOUND PEOPLE ON THE NET BUT SOMEHOW
MANAGED TO FAIL. What, do I have to expain this to you idiots? Do you
bitch about a meal from your mother and offer to recook it, too? Not
to mention, my email address is everywhere (and plenty of other
people manage to find me daily) and while I probably should have your
address on a kill filter, I don't as I have better things to do these
days.

  Updating http://history.perl.org/PerlTimeline.html         


Author: Shlomi Fish

Hi all!

I'd like to start the long task of updating
http://history.perl.org/PerlTimeline.html which has been stopped at 2002.
What I'm planning to do is:

1. Make the document validate:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%%3A//history.perl.org/PerlTimeline.html

2. Convert to XHTML 1.1.

3. Add more links and news items (that would be the hardest part) in the
following years. Also prune some dead links.

Note that I have some affiliations. I'll fork the document to a temporary
location (with a note). The copyright reads:

  why isn't there a short / memorable url for the perl 5 and 6 wikis ?         


Author: Aaron Trevena
Date: Apr 17, 2008 01:29

Hi All,

I've been contributing to both the perl 5 and perl 6 wiki's, but find
that they are hardly linked to, the urls aren't exactly easy to
remember, and the inner community (let alone the diaspora) seems to
not know they exist.

Why can't we have a wiki.perl.org ?

You can always link to the perl 6 wiki from there (in fact we already do).

Andy - can we have an article on perlbuzz about the wiki - it is
growing, but slowly and I don't think many perl people outside of the
usual suspects even know of it's existence.

  ohloh - are your projects and source code being counted ?         


Author: Aaron Trevena
Date: Apr 16, 2008 07:41

Hi All,

Just a quickie to say, it doesn't take long to add your project and
contributions to perl projects on ohloh.

Heck, I just added Autodia to googlecode (free svn ftw), and then to
ohloh in 10 minutes.

If you have any significant projects - make them count, give kudos to
the perl (and other) developers who deserve it, review projects. It's
all good.

Cheers,

A.
