Thanks for this journal entry ;-)

But we do ship subscriptions internationally. So this shows that the website lacks of information about that. Thanks that you mentioned this... There is just one thing with international shipping: you have to pay the additional shipping costs (that differs from country to country).
We had some issues with international zip codes, but we have fixed this.

Regarding your visit in Germany: There is one Perlmonger group near Duisburg - Ruhr.pm. I'll drop them an email...

Yeah, clearly the problem isn't (just) a lack of will. I'm not a Perl 5 core dev, so obviously I don't know all the details.

So why couldn't you sustain it? Is there some reason preparing a release is so much work?

There was a long thread on p5p about regular releases for perl. I think this message is a good point to start reading (if I remember correctly): http://markmail.org/message/w4zbguq4cjitfvcb

One thing I have wondered is why we can't get a few paid people working on Perl 5. You'd think that there are enough companies out there depending on it that they'd be willing to kick in $10,000 per year each to TPF, and TPF in turn could hire a couple people.

It would be great if companies would give some money to TPF. If you look at the donations page of the perlfoundation site, you'll see that there are not that many big donations (I know that booking.com gave $50,000 to TPF last year - thanks! But such donations are rare).
Nevertheless TPF gave a grant to Dave Mitchell for releasing Perl 5.10.1.

Attached to: TPF fund drive for grant money
The $10,000 USD limit was just for one quarter. Maybe you meant this post (http://news.perlfoundation.org/2008/06/help_tpf_fund_grants.html)

I'd like to help you with the fund raise. I can "promote" it on some websites and in the german perl magazine.
Something like this has to be prepared well. You need a press release in several languages. I can prepare one for german media.

@TPF: Do companies get a receipt when they sponsor TPF?
