Over one year ago, slightly after we met at the Vienna YAPC, I
submitted the article I wrote for the talk I held there (integrating
large Free Software repositories: Debian and Perl) to Brian. He gave
me some observations I could update the article with, so it could be
accepted... But I never got around to actually do it. Brian approached
me some months later, re-stating the offer to have the article appear
if said adequations were done. I _am_ interested, but to be honest, I
have grown much less active lately, and I fear I might be missing
important parts of the pkg-perl group's recent activity.

So... Does this sound interesting to you? To someone else? Do you want
to be an author? Impress your friends? Take over the world? :-)
