A cynical person could say that is actively hindering Perl5 development by hiring so many (ex-)pumpkings and other people knowledgeable in Perl
OTOH, by providing them with an income, they may actually have some time to help Perl development. Open source contributers need to eat as well.
As far as I'm aware, demerphq, BooK, Abigail and RafaŽl (and likely many others whose names I just currently don't have in mind) work there.
There's Acme::CPANAuthors::Booking which lists about 25 people. But last what I heard is that they employ over 50 developers, so I guess not all of their employees have modules on CPAN.

[haukex]: Yes sorry I don't run them all the time, my POD tests are only run as author tests (and are excluded when I'm using Devel::Cover)
[Corion]: choroba: Hmm - no, I keep the snippets inline, but as my framework also has support for capturing output etc., maybe I should do the same...
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, that approach is sane, and it heals the fragility of Pod parsers in a nice way while still syntax-checking stuff
[choroba]: Unfortunately, none of it is online
[haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
