As part of my ongoing effort to create a better web-based newsreader for nntp.perl.org, I'd like to take a look at its current code, to learn exactly how things are done. (especially, the RSS feeds generation).
However, I am unable to find out where to find this code. There used to be a perl.org repository under svn.perl.org, with an account of guest, but this account has been disabled (at least with the original password which I was given and which I otherwise was able to find). I sent an email to the Perl NOC guys (Ask Bjørn Hansen and Robert Spier) about a week ago, but still haven't received any reply from either (not even an acknowledgement). I tried talking to Ask on Jabber (twice) but he did not respond.
So I'd like to query the knowledge and wisdom of the collective Perl community about where I can find the source code for nntp.perl.org. If you can help, please post a comment below. (Or otherwise contact me.)
As for some news about CGI-Application-NetNewsIface itself: I released the first non-developers release on CPAN (version 0.0101), in order to help reach the 10,000 CPAN modules barrier before YAPC::NA. Since then, I quite stopped working on it (due to my new full-time job and a voluntary project I'm involved in.) Yesterday and today however, I added support for a MySQL-based cache (a very small code modification), and also added a front page, and an "About this App" page. Both are in the Subversion repository.
I'd really like to add RSS-support next, which is why I'd like to take a look at the code of www.nntp.perl.org.
