"PMD" is a common abbreviation for PerlMonks Discussion, the section for discussing the PerlMonks site itself (see also Guide to PerlMonks Acronyms and Abbreviations). A form for starting a new discussion about the site can be found at the bottom of that page (but please review Posting on PerlMonks first).

Major changes to the site will be announced in the PMD section though it will also contain other threads such as questions about the site. Minor (and major) changes to the site are recorded in Tidings.

[haukex]: here's the code that uses it
[Corion]: haukex: Hmm - maybe I can reuse that. I see that it uses Pod::Parser, which I think was one of the more fragile parsers. But if I'm statically (re)generating the tests instead of doing that "live" on the client/tester machines, that's a much smaller...
[Corion]: ... problem space than trying to cater to all versions of Pod::Parser(s)
[haukex]: I think you're right, I think Pod::Simple is the preferred parser now
