I realize I don't have much room to complain here as I am not a devil nor do I desire to be one. I do however feel I contribute in other meaningful ways. One of which in the past was financially.

I am not sure why the community doesn't have more a say in what features get added or not. I don't really like the changes to the scratchpad, inbox, or a few other things I don't remember at the moment. I also don't remember there being a request for input before implementation either.

I am not suggesting that every change require a consensus vote. The people managing the site have always done a decent job of exercising common sense. It is just frustrating and I am just venting. I am not going anywhere anytime soon but I will no longer contribute money (for reasons explained elsewhere).

Update: I figured I should be fair. There is Inner Scriptorium for discussion on changes to the site. As indicated, it intended to be used by pmdev. Regular users are only made aware of new entries when they appear on Newest Nodes. As pointed out by bart in No link to Scriptorium, there hasn't been a whole lot of announcement about this section or what it is for so how would anyone know to go there looking for proposed ideas. In other words, it is convenient to say that a topic affecting the entire town will be discussed at the next town meeting but doesn't do anyone much good if the announcment is in fine print of the last page of the newspaper

Cheers - L~R

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
