A week ago, I posted a message to the firstname.lastname@example.org which can be summarized like this.
"Dealing with dates and times in Perl sucks. There's lots of good modules out there, but no two have a similar API, none is feature complete, and none of them play nice together. Oh, and there's no decent time zone code either. Let's fix it."
Since then, there's been a lot of discussion (318 messages in 8 days (eek, about 43% or so by me!)) and some code written, even!
So if this is a topic that interests you, please join the email@example.com list. While I am playing dictator, there's lots of things to discuss, particularly module APIs, and lots of date/time things I don't know about or understand properly, so there will be lots of work for interested parties.
