Hi Andrew,

Firstly - O'Reilly has yet to refuse any perl group using the camel -  
they are good custodians, you need someone to protect things like  
that - of course I would be happier if it was the Perl Foundation :-)

However... this is a world wide effort - not just Melbourne :-) And  
is being done with blessing.
