  • One key difference between the Phalanx project and Corehackers is that a module usually has a single author or at most a small coterie of co-maintainers. So getting contributions accepted requires getting their attention and support and a busy/disinterested author can intentionally or unintentionally drop a contribution on the floor.

    On the other hand, the Perl 5 core has over 20 people with a commit bit, so the odds of getting someone's attention and support is higher. I still think it's advisable to discuss a potential contribution in advance, but the risk that volunteer work will be wasted through neglect is much lower.
