Thanks for pointing this out to me, Denny. Just read up on Task::Kensho

Task::Kensho is a first cut at building a list of reccomended modules for Enlightened Perl development. CPAN is wonderful, but there are too many wheels and you have to pick and choose amongst the various competing technologies.

The plan is for Task::Kensho to eventually morph into an actual perl distribution.

The modules that are bundled by Task::Kensho are broken down into several categories and are still being considered. They are all taken from various top 100 most used perl modules lists.

Maybe there is a big overlap after all. Meanwhile, Matt Trout contacted me about PROPERL & EPO and suggested we work together on this instead of going both our seperate ways. Am considering to accept his offer.

I did not mean to imply EP goes wrong in any way; it doesn't have the same goals as PROPERL does, that's all. I fully applaud EP and its team and I am already a supporting (paying) member too. The goals of EP are listed on their website (http://www.enlightenedperl.org/) and I think it's a fantastic initiative. But they don't go as far as fixing their efforts to a completely "definable" toolset, which is the ultimate goal of PROPERL. Does this make sense for you?

  Journal: howto (temporarily) disable edits in pmwiki on 2009.02.07 5:15

How to (temporarily disable edits) in pmwiki (this is a dirty quickfix; Auth is obviously a better solution):

edit the pmwiki.php file and change:

179 'edit' => 'HandleEdit', 'source' => 'HandleSource',

to:

179 'edit' => 'HandleBrowse', 'source' => 'HandleSource',

To enable the editing, just switch back.

  Journal: err debian upgrade on 2009.02.07 4:55

Upgraded 2 Debian Etch servers today (with an "apt-get update" and subsequent "apt-get upgrade") one of which hosts the http://vlaanderen.pm.org/ site. There was an upgrade for the kernel included (2.6.18-6-686) but after reboot Apache2+mod_perl wouldn't come up again, complaining about Errno.pm.

I tried an apt-get remove perl (which yielded the debian packages below), but to no avail.

The first Belgian Perl Workshop was, IMHO, a success. My congrats to the Bruxelles Perl Mongers to organize it. Hopefully there are many more BPWs to come. Here are the slides from my talks:

And here are the photos I took. I for one am already looking forward to next year.

The long comatose vlaanderen.pm.org website just received an adrenaline shot right in the heart and is now back alive. Now we get busy reviving the community itself, which no doubt will be helped a lot by the upcoming Belgium Perl Workshop. http://vlaanderen.pm.org
