in reply to Offering Plate with a twist

It might help if the text was a little clearer about the relationships between the various organisations involved. Here's a brief history:

In July 2001, Perl Monks (and Perl Mongers) announced that they were merging with Yet Another Society (the people that organise the YAPC conferences). In December 2001, YAS announced that they were setting up an internal unit called The Perl Foundation to handle all of their Perl work (YAS also works with other Open Source technologies). Perl Monks and Perl Mongers both became part of The Perl Foundation.

Therefore Perl Monks no longer really exists as a separate entity - which is why the the offering plate takes you to a YAS web site. For information about what TPF is doing with your money, see the newletters on their site.

I'd be happy to answer any further questions about the relationships between the various bodies.
