Perl was accepted for the GSOC in 2011 but rejected in 2012. I think they
plan to apply in 2013.


There has been some talk of "going it alone". There weren't any applications
for TPF grants in either of the last two quarters, so they have been looking
for new ideas. One suggestion was to use the TPF grants to sponsor GSOC-type
Perl projects for students.


I don't know how far they got with the idea.

Hi all, sorry I am not coming lately, busy days.. 


Anyway, interesting subject you are talking about, I know this is just a
community, but you might be interested to mentor students under Perl in GSOC
( Google Summer of Code ). Mentor gets 500$, which is symbolic but a lot of
fun, and can push some stuff into life which annoys you in perl or some
missing feature...

Thanks Tim, also welcome to new member Thomas.

We also discussed group sponsorship. Maybe one other thing it would
allow us to do is hire a venue to hold talks/presentations? Such a
thing might attract new members.
