Okay, let me see if I understand completely:
You want a section that is different from Seekers of Perl Wisdom in that:
- It is explicitly for reviewing working code
- The posters are aware that the code is there to be reviewed
- Replies can be private
If this is indeed what you want, I would overall have no problem with it, except:
- I see no reason for private feedback. PerlMonks is about sharing learning, and this could be an excellent learning opportunity for more than the poster
- This would be best accomplished by revising the Code Catacombs section. As it stands, there is no real
distinction made between Code Catacombs, Craft, and Snippets. Rather than adding a new section, I would modify one of those existing ones.
If I am now understanding your wishes, and with the above comments, I think this is a great idea. You mentioned something in
the chatterbox yesterday about what you considered good/bad usage of the ? : construction during a code-review, and I
found it interesting. Where I work I'm the only Perl programmer, and there is nothing resembling a code
review. My only reason for writing good code is that I have to maintain it, and my
only means of learning new tricks is reading books and PerlMonks. I
know I would benefit from code review, and I imagine others would too.
All of this is IMNSHO, of course.
