I might have missed the email where Josh said he had had enough
of dealing with the miscreants - but please don't be dissuaded by being
an "egg". The skillset required to keep the group organized has little
to do with being a perl guru.
In fact, last time the position was open none of the real
smartypantses (you know who you are) excepting Josh volunteered. If the idea of
running a group like this sounds like fun and you find the subject matter
intriguing, go for it! If you're not sure how much of a pain in the ass
we are, ask Josh.
Come to think of it, it might be nice to have a brain dump from
the current and past benevolent leaders regarding the responsibilities
and rewards (ha ha) of running the group on the wiki or somesuch.
