    There is a new mailing list for Catalyst related discussion in German. It is born out of a discussion in Hamburg.pm/Dresden.pm mailing list, that we should try to collect and bring together german speaking Catalyst users. Matt S Trout quickly set up the list for us before we could say "Blueberry pie".

    "May I remind everybody my personal opinion, which is that I see little to null utility to style patches to C or perl code, but that they clobber version control history, waste my time, and that in most I cases will not apply them." — Rafaël Garcia-Suarez, current pumpking, on why people should not fiddle with the bloody whitespace.

    pmtools-perl6 Mailing Lists

    Journal written by Mark Leighton Fisher (4252) and posted by brian_d_foy on 2006.10.18 13:02   Printer-friendly
    The pmtools-perl6 mailing lists are now set up on SourceForge:
    pmtools-perl6-announce
    Announcements about pmtools-perl6. I expect there will only be a few messages per month.

    pmtools-perl6-porters
    pmtools-perl6 developers should congregate here.

    Both lists are unmoderated presently. I hope to leave them unmoderated, as time I spend on moderation would be time I don't spend on developing pmtools-perl6.

    mock writes "ONLamp has an article up by Stas Bekman of MailChannels on some of the technology behind their efforts to make life miserable for spammers. There's an excellent description of using Event::Lib to handle many simultaneous connections and very high network loads, plus a little hype for a company using perl to solve some tricky network issues."

    "The whole point of reserving these namespaces is not to prevent users from misusing them, but to ensure that when we eventually get around to using a particular block name, and those same users start screaming about it, we can mournfully point to the passage in the original spec and silently shake our heads. ;-)"
