  Journal: Top-level namespace pollution is evil on 2010.04.22 17:57

Why's it evil? Because not everyone hunts for modules by using a search engine. Because you're less likely to see that you're needlessly reinventing the wheel. et cetera et cetera

People need to read perlmodstyle and think before they upload. Indeed, PAUSE should exact a pound of flesh or some other substitute before accepting top-level modules.

Heh-heh. Sounds good. Actually Zealotry::MONS is the straw that broke the camel's back as it were, but the foundation was laid by others.

Actually, I gave two ways :-P

And I suppose they could put something into that namespace which is not implemented with either of them. While the name might not then be hierarchically correct i.e; implied inheritance is missing; at would be thematically correct.

Regardless, the "prohibition" against non-pragmatic lowercase module names is not mine.

Arggh! Enough with the bloody vanity pseudo-pragmas and other modules to enable some combination of features-you-love-and-so-should-everyone-else sprinkled all-over CPAN. Create a bloody ToolSet or ToolSet::Bundle. That's what they're for, and it keeps all of that crud^Wbeauty collected together for ready comparison and retrieval.

Is currently lagging, and may not be up at the turn of the page without some help. I've got term papers galore, and cannot contribute until nearly mid-month. If you're interested in participating, see http://www.perladvent.org/2008/FAQ-submit.html

P.S. Don't worry about ideas. If you have some, they're welcome, but we've got a list of candidates too.

I've finally managed to transfer perladvent.org from Mark Fowler, so historic links should work (soon). However, the modern monger address will continue to work as well. While it may seem a little early to begin thinking about the calendar, it's very stressful to write & edit things Just In Time, so I'm putting the call out for contributors and assistant editors. I just entered a graduate program and will not be able to devote much time to the calendar until the third week of December; this also means I can't really write things in advance. If you're interested, please see the FAQ s and contact me ASAP. Do not worry if you have no ideas of what to write, we've got a fairly large backlog of possibilities, although we certainly welcome other suggestions. In addition, we need some artwork for the calendar splash page in keeping with general perlish and X-mas themes. Prod artsy coworkers, submit your own open-licensed masterpieces, or request clarification and inspiring suggestions. Finally, keep in mind that the more people who participate, the less stress and effort each must bear ;-)
