Some time ago, The Perl Foundation awarded a grant to "improve blogs.perl.org":http://news.perlfoundation.org/2015/07/grant-proposal-revitalize-blog.html. Unfortunately, soon afterwards Jeff, the grant's recipient "ended up in hospital":http://blogs.perl.org/users/drforr/2015/09/post-yapc-update.html at YAPC::Europe.
Fortunately, Jeff is recovering and has started work on the project with Amalia. They expect to have a more detailed plan for the project soon.
Current work includes comparing the existing site's features to those Pearlbee offers, as well as database migration.
