Perl Foundation projects looking for volunteers

A recent thread in the mailing list got people saying that they wanted to donate some time to The Perl Foundation, but didn't know where their efforts could be used.

Here are two places to start:

  • Jim Brandt, who organized YAPC::NA 2004 in Buffalo, is looking for volunteers to help with a Perl-based conference system. See his TPF blog post for details.
  • I'm looking for someone to write up a PR piece that we can publish about Coverity's source code analysis of the Perl 5 source. There's already been an article about it from Coverity's point of view, but I'd like to have something where we can talk about how we, as the Perl community, are working with Coverity. It'd be a bit of research, and some PR-ish/newsy writing. I'd really like to encourage other companies to work with TPF. Email at andy at if you're interested.

Thanks for your interest!
