Forwarding to SPUG on behalf of Eric Wilhelm <ewilhelm at cpan.org>:

The Perl Foundation needs volunteers to make summer of code happen this
year.  It sounds like the administrators got stretched too thin in 2005
and 2006, and we really didn't have ourselves together in 2007.  So, I'm
proposing a departmental structure under a TPF umbrella, which will
localize the cat-herding effects within various large projects (so far,
parrot and Catalyst appear to be on board with this.)  I would like to
demonstrate that we have our act together this year, so we need to get a
solid pool of administrative volunteers and mentors together before the

Administrative needs:

  (Contact ewilhelm at cpan.org or join #soc on irc.perl.org.)

  * backup administrator (reduce the bus number)

  * Department heads for p5p, "modules", etc

  * Suggestions about department structure

Mentors and project ideas needed:

We need to get these pages populated before March 8th or it is quite 
likely to be a no-go.
Potential mentors, please add yourselves and your project ideas here:
