Volunteers needed: Mailing list support for the perl.org lists

1 Comment

If you have been wondering how you can help out, here is one way. :-)

A quick introduction:

If you don't know me, I am looking after many of the perl.org services with Robert Spier. When I started I helped look after the majordomo system it was running on then. Soon after I moved the lists and the websites we hosted to a computer under my desk at ValueClick where I did work back then. Later Perl.org got moved to a better server and installed in the ValueClick colocation facility where it stayed for ~4 years.

A few years ago Ticketmaster helped us get our own rack at the wonderful IX2 facility and our own bandwidth from Internap. We know have a full rack of old servers. The mailing list server is one of the 1U Dell servers near the bottom of the rack (donated by ShopZilla). We actually have the rack next to this one too now, but it's almost empty. Robert and I are planning to go and spend a day there around christmas and install some new (old) stuff in the empty rack and do some re-organizing. We post updates on that sort of thing in the Perl NOC Log occasionally.

Anyway, now go back to read about helping us with the list-owner emails

Currently, I'm a novice in perl and i'm ready to volunteer for any perl related tasks that you need help. Please let me know if you have any.
