I have been promoting the idea of a community project to get Perl supported on Google App Engine.
I have made various contacts with people inside Google, and it seems that the core App Engine team is busy with plenty of other things. However, this does not stop the community from getting something started. We will likely attract perl advocates within Google as we go along, even if they are not on the App Engine team. I would like to see the effort advance until the point where it becomes a simple matter for the App Engine team to embrace Perl.
I have started a project for all people interested in following this effort or contributing toward it.
