Board response to SoC incident.

No Comments

Dear Perl Community:

As reported in our blog post last week, the Board has been reviewing the details surrounding the decision to delist a conference video from The Perl Foundation's YouTube channel following a Standards of Conduct complaint. As part of this review, a special Board meeting was held on July 16th, 2019 to review the complaint and the process of how it was handled. The Board of Directors have agreed that further analysis is warranted.

Although the team that handled the complaint did have Board representation, the Board of Directors was not involved in the initial review. We hope that a brand new set of objective eyes on the problem will help to either confirm the initial finding, or identify more equitable solutions.

While the Board investigates this issue, we do ask that the community refrain from posting speculative or inflammatory messages. Our goals are understanding, healing, and improving. Negative posts only serve to harm our community. We encourage people with comments regarding this matter to contact any member of the Board of Directors.

We hope to provide additional information in about one week. Until then, we thank you for your patience.

Thank you,

TPF Board of Directors
