You can post anything related to the development of perl5. If you have a look at the list archives, you'll find that (in general) everyone is very polite and helpful.

Dave.

    And dont forget LLVM Perl is not related to the development of Perl.
      Dave,

      Is Anonymous Monk right, will Perl5-on-LLVM be considered not related to Perl development?

      Thanks,
      ~ Will
        I would guess that if you're unable to successfully make the case for Perl-on-LLVM, you're in a bad spot for championing it at all. Of course, actually looking at the p5p archives doesn't indicate to me why Perl-on-LLVM should be off-topic on p5p. But then again, I have only looked superficially, as it's not central to my interests.
        will Perl5-on-LLVM be considered not related to Perl development?
        First off, any discussions about the future directions(s) of perl5 is on-topic. Secondly, if the plan is for any LLVM enhancements to be included in the current perl core, then its definitely on-topic. If the the plan is to produce a completely separate product (e.g. the perlito approach), then after some initial discussion, you might want to take the day-to-day development discussions onto a new list.

        Of course, I'm not promising that p5p will be interested in, or warm to, such topics.

        Dave.
