    I'd like to get our company to put some money in. After all most of our development is perl based and we'll be needing perl 6 eventually and even if we never need it we'll be able to take advantage of the parrot VM, etc.

    I'd like to get involved too but I have little time and so far my attempts at contacting people about starting things like a perl knowledgebase or application database, or revamping the main perl websites have had no results.

    It would be really cool if I knew a) who to contact and b) what jobs needed doing and how much time/money was outstanding.

    I'm also interested in things like getting some backing/support from the OSDL, I haven't seen any mention of any support from the OSDL for perl and thats a sore shame.

    On top of that it would be cool to have a group of people outreaching to students and lecturers at universities and colleges teaching software development and computing.

    Except with all of this its difficult to see where to start, who has done what already and what they acheived.
