After reading Perl, MUA project
it occured to me that it would probably be a good idea to have some sort of forum where like-minded monks could get together to collaborate on projects like it.
If we could get more of that sort of co-operation going it would allow monks with a range of abilities and specialities to learn from each other and benefit from the experience. Even monks not actively participating could learn by following the development process (depending on the scale of the project). As an incentive (if one were needed) for active participation perhaps XPs could be awarded.
Perhaps we will soon start seeing modules/code with the credit 'Developed by the Perl Monks'.
