    • Availability isn't that limited. They've been given away for free at the last 2 YAPC's. I don't remember if O'Reilly produced proceedings for TPC1. For TPC2 and perhaps TPC3[*], there was a CD for the proceedings. TPC4 and TPC5 had the printed books. I honestly don't even remember if there was a refereed papers track at TPC6 this year; there weren't any printed or digital proceedings either.

      Availability of the print proceedings isn't really as important as keeping an online record of the conference two, three or five years later. For example, I remember Marcelo's talk (I wandered into the room before for that slot), but I always have to go to Network Solutions to look up his last name, and I can't remember the title of his talk (or find his paper).

      [*] TPC3 may have had print/photocopied proceedings, but TPC4 certainly was the first year that they were bound in a glossy volume.

        TPC3 did indeed have (paper bound) proceedings, "Perl Conference 3.0 Refereed Papers.". It's fairly hefty - slightly larger than 4.0 (which was larger than 5.0), but it has neither page numbers nor cataloging information. It does however contain some real gems such as Damian's Coy (all ten pages written in haiku), Class::Multimethods, and Tie::SecureHash papers :)
