Grant Complete: learn.perl.org

Eric Wilhelm has finished his grant improving learn.perl.org". He has written
six tutorials - from "Getting Started with Perl" to "Your First GUI Desktop
Application".

The six tutorials are

The tutorials are currently hosted http://learnperl.scratchcomputing.com, but if
Eric finds a better permanent home for them, he will setup redirects for that.

In addition to the original plan, Eric has created the
Combust::Spontaneously module and published it on the CPAN. This
lowers the technical barrier for contributing to perl.org sites by
allowing editors to preview their changes without needing to be an
apache admin. Eric hopes that this tool ultimately leads to perl.org
improvements which exceed what he had planned in terms of site rework
(perhaps it already has).

Eric's grant proposal included a website redesign, but the whole *.perl.org family
was redesigned by Leo Lapworth and friends (see http://news.perlfoundation.org/2009/11/new_look_on_wwwperlorg.html).

The initial Grant proposal can be found at
