Subject: [pm_groups] Summer of Code -- volunteers needed

Hi all,

Volunteer pledge drive!  Please forward this to your local PM groups.

TPF needs volunteers to make summer of code happen this year.  It sounds
like the administrators got stretched too thin in 2005 and 2006, and we
really didn't have ourselves together in 2007.  So, I'm proposing a
departmental structure under a TPF umbrella, which will localize the
cat-herding effects within various large projects (so far, parrot and
Catalyst appear to be on board with this.)  I would like to demonstrate
that we have our act together this year, so we need to get a solid pool
of administrative volunteers and mentors together before the 8th.

Administrative needs:

   (Contact ewilhelm at cpan.org or join #soc on irc.perl.org.)

   * backup administrator (reduce the bus number)

   * Department heads for p5p, "modules", etc

   * Suggestions about department structure

Mentors and project ideas needed:

We need to get these pages populated before March 8th or it is quite
likely to be a no-go.

Potential mentors, please add yourselves and your project ideas here:

will batch the wiki edits on your behalf.
