It gives me great pleasure to announce that Chris Dolan's Policies for Perl::Critic grant, awarded April 07, is now underway. Chris intends to add twenty policies that are inspired by Damian Conway's Perl Best Practices to Perl::Critic to help developers to make their code more maintainable.
Chris has written the first of the twenty policies funded by the grant, Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::ProhibitComplexMapping, which insists that the block argument to map() has at most one statement.
Further details of the policies Chris intends to implement can be found in Perl::Critic's POD. You can also track Chris's work at http://perlcritic.tigris.org/svn/perlcritic/branches/Perl-Critic-1.xxx
