Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.
Question for my European friends: do you spell it "theater" or "theatre"? Our company insists that this is how Europeans spell it and we want a more "international" feel.

I don't live in Europe, but in New Zealand we'd spell it theatre. I suspect the Australians might come down on the side of theater.
I'm intrigued by your use of the term 'Europeans'. Is that some sort of euphimism for 'not American'? The UK and Ireland are really the only(?) countries in Europe that primarily speak English, so most Europeans probably have a completely different word in their own language (although they may be derived from the same Latin/Greek root).
When I say "European", what I really mean is "our marketing people have some awfully silly ideas", but I was trying to be a bit diplomatic about it :)
Which brand of European do you mean?
U.S. english is a just a dialect. If people want to be clear they should say 'U S English'.
Then there are those stupid dates - when will the U.S. use sensible date formats.
Big-endian dates avoid all confusion over what 03/04/2000 means, they sort trivially, and they are an ISO standard.
They will change the order of months or add Nikember or Bigmactober between november and december next.
