The cups were purchased by a volunteer. I think they were going to
get used ceramic mugs at goodwill, or something, but they ran out of
time. Everyone was sad about the cups including the person who
I was there for a while myself. I only learned about the perl
connection because he asked me what I do for a living. As big as the
local FOSS community is I don't think it is big enough to be a major
issue for candidates yet. Still it would be nice to have someone in
city hall that attends OSCON.
