Hello from far too early in the morning to be learning about debian-perl
TL;DR "dod suggested I join so I can get a sponsor easier"
dod caught me over at debian-mentors trying to find a sponsor for
perlbal packages I filed as ITP yesterday... and despite it being 5:20am
I'd like to say hello, request to join your group, and try to find a
I'm 'hachi-guest' on alioth, and most other times simply 'hachi'
I won't claim to be a god at perl until I start holding the pumpkin (if
that ever happens), but I have a lot of fun programming, and am happy
enough with some contributions I've made to the internet:
* pam-perl -- embed a perl interpreter into PAM phases, so you can do
whatever you want easily when applications use pam.
* MogileFS::Network -- Make a MogileFS cluster understand how it is
layed out with regards to a network. Adds Multi-DC semantics.
Maintainer: (I do the work, DORMANDO does the uploads to CPAN)
* Perlbal -- HTTP load balancer written in perl, with an XS extension
available to make it mostly fast.
* Gearman::Server, Gearman::Client -- The original perl server and perl
client for Gearman
In addition to these I care about most of the world of perl modules that
came from Six Apart, or Danga:
TheSchwartz (Actually, I'm lying about this one, I sorta wish people
didn't use it)
I'd love to bring these into the world of debian if they aren't already,
or help raise the bar on other things that I use for work or home.
Oh yes, and part of the reason why I care about these is my work is
currently mid-transition from centos to debian, and far too late have I
realized that I need to package up the things we use for debian. Why not
spend some effort and make packages for the community :)
Thank you for your time (and reading all the way down to here),
