Why you need a designer to do it # Because we can't embed images of our own shocking design skills

I was kinda going for the butterfly taking fight w/ minimalisim, kinda to invoke the whole "late stage development", "maturing past pupa", "taking flight", "new, and yet somewhat mature at the same time" ideas.

But its still pretty suck.

Dist::Zilla now available on Gentoo Overlay

I won't be notifying of every new package added to the overlay, just the ones that are significant to me and have substantial stacks of depends.

As of yesterday, Dist::Zilla [1] is available on the Gentoo Perl Overlay [2]

Hopefully this encourages the use of the awesome module.

( I've been doing this on my own branch for a few months, and only integrated it yesterday, which is why you'll see lots of back-history arriving overnight )

Perl 5.10.1 and Task::Kensho now available on gentoo.

I've been meaning to state this sooner, but things get away on you and you

As of this week, Task::Kensho and all its dependents are available on the
gentoo perl overlay [1][2], free for your installation.

Noted some of the dependents are still Masked, and if you want them, you'll
have to unmask them yourself, But its available, and its being used, and thats
what matters.

Also, yesterday, the long awaited perl 5.10.1 build was merged back into the
master branch, and hopefully if we can get enough people to test it and report
on their success, we can get it slated for migration.

Its sad enough that 5.10.0 didn't hit sooner, it was expected 5.10.1 would be
out a week or so later so they delayed, and of course, weeks turned into
months and the rest... yeah.

Props to Torsten Veller for his continuing efforts with the Perl 5.10.1 builds.


( ps. people wishing to contribute are more than welcome, hit up #gentoo-perl
    on freenode. )
