Hi Everyone,

So for tomorrow's meeting, I'll be showing you how to hack on MetaCPAN once you have the VM installed.  If you haven't got it installed and would like to have it for the meeting, the instructions are in these slides:


Once you have vagrant and VirtualBox installed, it's pretty easy.  I tested it this morning and "vagrant up" took me about 23 minutes on my laptop.  That includes downloading the VM, running puppet, installing some CPAN modules etc.  After that you can run "vagrant up" and your VM should start in a minute or so.

So, best to try this *before* the meeting rather than killing the hangout bandwidth by downloading stuff.

I'll have a short presentation, where we'll talk about how best to work with the VM.  Once that is finished, we can either break out into smaller groups and work on some simple bug fixes, or we can work through one as a group using the projector.

Before the social part of the evening, we should make a plan for speakers for the next 6 months.  So, please bring your ideas and wish list items.
