Today I published the Incomplete history of Perl as my birthday gift to Perl. Users of git or mercurial can perform the initial clone now and avoid the rush later:

git clone git://

(also available via HTTP at

Note that the preparation of this history has involved many long toiling hours of correlation of changelog information, searching for and attempting to apply literally thousands of patches from p5p archives and comparing them to the binary releases, c, etc. I believe it to be a significant achievement into the restoration of the early revisions of Perl. It certainly wouldn't have been possible without the support of my employer, Catalyst IT, and of course the wonderful revision toolkit that is Git.
