They forgot to mention the most famous recipient of the White Camel!
For those that don't know it was Jacinta 'jarich' Richardson in 2008.
(and to emphasis the message below, I understand that the original
nomination was sent in by a local monger with no connections to the
wider international community -- so get nominating)
>> Every year the White Camels are presented for service to the Perl
>> If you look at the previous winners, you'll notice that these are mostly
>> unsung heroes, like previous awardee Eric Cholet, the human moderator of
>> so many Perl mailing lists, or Jay Hannah, one of the people running
>> pm.org (if you ever created/maintained a pm group, chances are that Jay
>> walked you through the process).
>> Some of these people may be well known, like Allison Randal or Randal
>> Schwartz, while others may be complete strangers to at least part of the
>> globe, like Josh McAdams or Jay. Some of them may be extreme Perl
>> hackers who created the original JAPH, but they actually received this
>> award as a recognition for their community contributions to Perl rather
>> than for their programming ability.
>> That's not to say a great hacker can't receive the award, but you don't
>> have to be one in order to be eligible.
>> That being said, the nomination process for the 2009 White Camels is now
>> If you think there's someone who deserves a White Camel, this is the
>> time for you to send in your nominations. Send them to
>> whitecamel-suggestions at pm.org, if possible with a subject along the
>> lines of "White Camel Nomination :: $name". Make sure you properly
>> identify the nominee and tell us why you think that's a worthy
>> Don't go thinking "nah, somebody else will do it" because: a) everybody
>> else may be thinking the same, and b) you may state your case
>> differently than the next person.
>> We'll be receiving nominations until June 21, 2009, by midnight, but
>> don't wait up or you'll forget. Do it now!
