the PerlChina http://www.perlchina.org/ site has been up and running for almost half month. Everything seems to be going well.
The site's purpose is to offer a place for chinese perl users to hang out, and gather resources to contribute to the chinese perl community by translating articles/docs/books and answering questions on forum.
users are from Shanghai, Beijing, Dalian and other cities. we are developers
few articles from perl.com (Maypol,XML,Class::DBI etc) have been translated and more is working on. Merlyn's columns are well-written and We are waiting for his publisher's permission.
we are also looking at perlmonks.org for ideas how to operate the site and form a successful community.
P.S myself is working on Sean Burke's LWP article on perl.com. and he is offering help too. Thanks!
