Please RSVP by 5:30pm if you plan to attend so I can use the Yes count
to determine how much pizza to order.

If you're on the fence about attending, ask yourself these questions:

1) Do I ship one giant rpm for releases containing many changes?

2) Is my development codebase one big root directory?

3) Do I have a hard time figuring out where parts of my application
start, and where they end?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you should look at
creating CPAN distros.
