    • Has regularly contributed code to the Perl interpreter: NO
    • has contributed at least 5 major CPAN modules with high CPAN ratings/CPANTS score/depended on by other major modules: NO
    • has written well-regarded books and/or articles on Perl: YES
    • has spoken at international conferences on Perl: YES
    • has received grants from The Perl Foundation: NO (contributions from stonehenge don't count - wrong direction)
    • can obtain personal reference from Larry Wall: YES
    Hmm. Pretty high standards. Does anyone rate a 10 by that?
    • Randal L. Schwartz
    • Stonehenge
    • I was thinking of Damian when I came up with the list, though I'm not 100% sure he gets every point. The Perl interpreter point is a bit of a dodgy one, now I come to think of it; perhaps I should rephrase with s/interpreter/core/ or something, since I'd include core modules or major documentation or test contributions. But it's all a bit silly anyway, I reckon.

    • I reckon I probably got all of those except for for contributing to the interpreter, because I'm a Perl programmer, not a C programmer.

      (A bit dubious on the reference from Larry, but I'm sure I could conive my way into one).

      Unless you could adding YAML::Tiny to the core... gimme a few weeks for that on.
    • Looks like we're both 9s.
