I often hear this:
"I'd get involved in Perl, but all the cool stuff is done and there's no room to make a name for myself. No one needs another DBI module..."
"All the cool kids are using (Ruby/Python/TI-994A Extended Basic) because they don't have CPAN yet and they can become the uber-programmer for the cool modules."
Well, to these I say, "Nonsense!" There is a ton of work to be done for Perl today, right now. And it's crucially important work. So whenever I come across something that I think is really important, I'm going to post it with the heading 'Help Wanted.'
Criteria: This isn't going to be stuff like, "We need someone to fix this RT ticket for this module." I'm going to try to post stuff that I feel is truly important to Perl and would be useful to many people. I'll also try to post any progress if I hear about it.
