Already have, and already have :-) It should be up tonight (just waiting 
for approval on the use of the Camel from O'Reilly, don't ask !)

After I put it up I may need help, but it is fairly automatic. It just 
takes a set of text and pod files and generates all the neat stuff 
around it. Thats why I got people to send me the Perl shop stuff as pod.

This brings up a point we must discuss, which is our structure. We are 
now re registered with O'Reilly (with my details), and I believe Paul 
has been changed on I guess we need some positions, even if 
they are in name only.

Either, I will put this on my list of things to fix.

I already have partial approval (ie: someone at O'Reilly said that 
should be fine, but it hasn't been seen by the official person yet). The 
message is in their court - shouldn't be long.

We have done the web site with the colours of Amanda's Camel etc, but we 
can change the image if we must.
If we do find that they do not approve the Camel, then we SERIOUSLY need 
a new logo for the Perl community. The use of the word 'perl' is free to 
use anywhere about perl, good, bad etc... The use of the word perl in 
association with an image, should also be the same rules - you should be 
able to put up a camel and say - Perl sux because...
