Participating in Perl5 core development
I would love to participate more in perl5 core development. From time to time I read perl5-porters mailing list, sometimes participate in discussions. However, nobody likes people who says "A" and then disappears for a week or more. The only thing I can do is code tiny things on my own schedule. I don't want to run an idea by p5p list and block somebody from implementing it. Often I don't know if an idea is implementable or not, how big would impact, how hard it would be to maintain thing... So there is a big gap between idea and contacting p5p list for review and assessment.
My play perl
Here comes play-perl to the scene. I'm going to push my ideas as quests with link to this blog post and some common wording in the comment. The goals are:
- sharing ideas very early
- discussion at early stage
- assessing importance with likes
- hooking in contributors
You are free to take over a quest
At the moment play-perl is not very multiplayer, but there are plans. For now to coordinate collaboration on a quest you can do the following besides usual discussion:
- ask for status update
- ask for more details
- claim a quest for a day - a week
Let's see where it would take us. Looking forward to experience.
