Greetings! The Parse::Perl Project
is the SourceForge project site used to plan, co-ordinate and store the PPI Perl parser and around a dozen related modules.
I'd like to invite any and all Perl folks with an interest in parsing Perl, PPI
, the Perl::Editor
API, currently working on a Perl editor project, or with an interest in related topics, to the first official Parse::Perl project

Given that that we've got a number of people in both US-West and Euro, plus myself in AU-East, and with the help of dcnad, I've picked a time that should be at least be equally offensive for everybody.
Basically, late friday night US, earlyish Saturday Euro, and Saturday afternoon for me.
For when this is in your time zone, see
Since it's going to be pretty late US and early Saturday in the middle of the family-activies-month in Euro, we'll be running the meeting to a tight timetable, no longer than an hour.
The general focus will be on taking a look at the current state of things, and looking at how we can move towards practical tools like refactoring editors.
Call to order, introductions all round
Project Update and Catchup Questions (Adam K)
Infrastructure Modules Planning and Discussion (document caches, metrics database, common APIs etc)
Editor Comparison and blue sky thoughts
Perl::Editor feature discussion (given discussions on point 4.)
PPI 1.100 Feature Requests, Perl::BestPractice discussion
Meeting closes - General discussion, hacking, and brainstorming
For coordination purposes, all events will be made within 1 minute of actual synchronised network time. You may wish to turn up a little early if you are unsure.
Please note although I won't be moderating the channel, please limit any questions to on topic questions and please shut up if I tell you.
I might move ahead early if we exhaust a topic, but I don't plan on falling behind. Any remaining discussion at the end of each period can wait for until general discussion after the meeting.
At least a few people (including me) will be around for a number of hours afterwards working on various things, so there's plenty of time.
I won't be keeping official minutes, but I'd appeciate it if a couple of volunteers could log the meeting (plus a while into the general discussion period) for the benefit of those that can't attend. I'll summarise in my use.perl.org journal afterwards.
That's it, I hope to see you all there.
For discussion in the mean time, please feel free to join the parseperl-discuss mailing list
, located on the sourceforge site. If you'd like, please introduce yourself when you join, so we have a log of people as they come on.
