  • I joined recently. Not buy subscribing to a mailing list or putting my name on a wiki, but with code. Email-Send, Email-Address, Email-Simple-Creator. In fact, with those and my Net-IMAP-Simple module, you've got a good start for a webmail client.

    Alternatively, you could look at Email-Store and Maypole. Or just wait till Simon is finished glueing them together.

    • I think the problem is that there's no place to go to figure out what needs help, nor is there any easy way to discuss a proposed new module, an API, etc.
      • zackly!

        I was hoping for a simple page with

        • goals
        • guidelines
        • deliverables
        • acheivements
        • .. and most importanly - somebody you can ask about it all.
        I believe the NMS project has all these. It would be nice if there was a listing things like the NMS, Email, P5EE (or whatever replaces it), CPANPLUS, Maypole, etc.

        Also a list of Perl Applications, would be quite cool.

  • I would note that there is also the DateTime project ( []) and POE ( []) which are worthy timesinks (although I don't know how active the DateTime project has been of late).
    • DateTime has been low key recently because many of the core problems are solved. However, there's still lots left to do. There are many other calendars to be implemented, we could use modules for holidays, and there's not much in DateTime::Fiscal.
  • The Phalanx project has your name on it! Help beef up the tests of Perl, CPAN and Ponie. []

    Phalanx is undergoing some changes in how it'll work, so for now, join the perl-qa mailing list at and keep an eye on it.
