December 6, 2005 - Announcing the Perl Foundation Blog

The Perl Foundation was established in December 2001, but is a mystery to many people. Today we announce The Perl Foundation Blog at blog.perlfoundation.org (also available as Atom and RSS).

Perl Foundation News is the place to read updates on what members of the Foundation's working groups are working on and for other project-related announcements. Where before a working group member might post an update to his use.perl journal, or a meditation on perlmonks.org, from today those updates and more will be appearing on the Perl Foundation Blog.

The Perl Foundation's work includes:

  • sponsoring the YAPC conferences and supporting their organizers
  • managing grants for Perl-related projects
  • working with outside groups, as on Google's Summer Of Code project
  • putting a public face on the work of the Perl community
  • providing technical infrastructure for web hosting and Subversion repositories
  • supporting and coordinating volunteer efforts

Now you can get information about these activities.

Comments are enabled, allowing you to give feedback directly to our working group members. Talk directly to us and tell us what we're doing right or wrong. Ask us questions and we'll do our best to answer. We love comments and want to hear your views.

We're well aware of the problems of the past. We know that communications have been weak. We're working hard for the trust of the Perl community, and creating the Perl Foundation Blog is a crucial step as we work to earn that trust.

Whether you want to participate in helping make the Perl community even better, or interested in what's going on, we hope that blog.perlfoundation.org helps.


So, is it "blog.perlfoundation.org" or "news.perlfoundation.org?"

Hi Anonymous Poster,

Both, for now. :-) Eventually we'll likely move all the news items from the TPF website to the weblog infrastructure.

You mentioned the noc.perl.org folks who manage the various *.perl.org domains. Could you explain how one goes about getting one of those (with or without hosting) for a Perl project?

I originally posted this on Perlmonks, but was asked to post it here:
Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing some news about this Perl 6 I've been hearing so much about. I haven't seen an update to the "This week in Perl 6" here since October (though feel free to tell me if I'm not looking hard enough or if I'm looking in the wrong place). Also, I wouldn't mind such summaries being more high level. I don't follow the goings on of the Perl 6 community, so many of the comments in those posts are lost on me. A short list of "here's what we've worked on, we've got this much to go" would be appreciated by at least by this monk. :)

Hi Ben,

The "This week in Perl 6" are posted regularly on dev.perl.org, ">http://dev.perl.org/perl6/list-summaries/.

I'll try to find out why they are not being posted to perl.com.

yes, could we have a, maybe groklaw style' bit with links to latest Parrot, Perl6, and P5P blog entries and weekly summaries.

Ask:

I take it you are talking about are the news at www.perlfoundation.org. But which address will the weblog live at? It is currently available at both news.perlfoundation.org as well as blog.perlfoundation.org.

Aristotle,

Both addresses will keep working, so use whichever one you prefer. :-)

I just fixed Perl.com to display the summary links again. Sorry about the confusion!
