  • I haven't voted yet because I'm hoping that ActiveState will fix the voting script and allow me to only vote for categories that I'm qualified to vote in. I don't want PHP programmers who know nothing about Perl voting for one of the Perl programmers at random. It makes a complete mockery of the voting.

    I guess you could argue that the random votes would be evenly distributed but I really don't think we can rely on that.

    Besides, waiting for them to fix it will give me time to decide between Schwern and Mat

  • I totally agreed (Score:3, Interesting)

    I voted for Schwern.
    Why? Because as I understood the Award, it is supposed to be for the 'unsung heroes'. And Damian, for all he's a great guy, superb speaker top notch programmer and trainer, isn't exactly unsung. Hell, he has an Award named after him.

     ...which is why, late last night when I found out about the nomination and the criteria for it, I asked ActiveState to remove my name from the list of nominees.

  • ... consider that Schwern has also taken on maintenance of MakeMaker and Test::Harness. (Some of those MakeMaker modules predated File::Spec, and, if you hadn't read it, you wouldn't believe the convoluted inheritance scheme.) That's a job almost as thankless as being the pumpking.

  • I won't be voting for anyone in the Perl category since three out of five hardly count for "unsung" heroes, and the other two don't say anything to me, sorry  :-)
