I would love to see something like this, and I agree that for now, p.n.a is the right spot for it.

Sadly I have nothing to contribute, but I will be an eager consumer of this content.

Subject: [Melbourne-pm] Mod_perl2

Hey Guys

Firstly - sorry about my unprepaired talk last night. Work has been a bit crazy, and I should have remember my rule about doing unprepared talks :-)

Anyway, some questions got me thinking, in particular the appropriate use of mod_perl vs other methods of writing applications. And that got me thinking - where do I write such stuff?

What is needed, like with most OS projects, is a good WIKI to collaboratively update the mod_perl content. Although a mod_perl wiki should really be part of the mod_perl project, rather than going down that track, until it is required/popular, I suggest we create some pages on perl.net.au.

The sort of topics I would like to cover are:

* Why should you use mod_perl
* Why should you use mod_perl2
* Why should you not use mod_perl
* Processing Parameters, Environment Variables and Headers - in Content and Filter handlers (and other stages)

That sort of thing.

Microsoft is not the answer. It's the question. And the answer is no.
