They're having a platform war. We're forever left out of the ruby vs.
games, the "enterprise" people ignore us (though really, I'm not sure I
that :) but ...

"We have been considering Perl as one of the platforms to be admitted to
contest. So far, we have decided against it because we believe that too few
professionals use it professionally for us to hope to get enough
requests for
admittance for the Perl platform.

If you are a team that would like to participate and would like to use
please contact prechelt at inf.fu-berlin.de (Lutz Prechelt)."

This is a bit of a shotgun e-mail. Several list admins are probably
going to
attempt to track me down and shoot me in the head. I don't care.

Our community has repeatedly failed to market it's way out of a paper bag,
I've even helped contribute to this with my eminently forgettable London
Frameworks Night talk. But this is about producing working code. *That* we
know we can do.

Stand up and be counted. It's gotta be good for a laugh if nothing else.
