this mail is for the non-English Perl Monger groups.
Another one, for the English speaking groups will follow soon.
The GCI - Google Code In - has started 2 days ago.
The Perl Foundation participates through the volunteer work
Florian Ragwitz (rafl) and Paul Johnson ( pjcj ).
The dead-line for the first round was extended to 27 November
and in these 2 days I think I know what is missing.
I'd like to call for your help.
Some of the tasks are translation related such as
- The Moose website
- The GUI of Padre, the Perl IDE
- Several screencasts I made and put on YouTube
Having translations in your language can be of a lot of
help getting people started. They will have to learn English
eventually but its a nice help.
In order to have translations in your language we first need
mentors who speak your language fluently and who
would be ready to help a bit.
Once we have that we will also need students but as
I could see in these two days that's less of a problem.
We need mentors. If you think this is a good cause
Please forward this message to your Perl Monger group
(and maybe add a few sentences in your local languages :)
and kick their ass to sign up as mentors.
Here is the process:
1) Sign up as a mentor at
2) Join the #gci channel on irc.perl.org
If you don't have an IRC client you can follow this link:
3) Talk to Paul Johnson ( pjcj ) or Florian Ragwitz ( rafl )
who can invite you to the TPF program.
Let them know you are ready to mentor XYZ translations.
They will probably schedule a few translation tasks to your language
and when they need your help they will let you know.
Once there are a few tasks you can send out another call for students.
I think that's it.
If you'd like to get in the first round you have only 4 days for that.
