Since it appears to be dead, Perl News should either be killed or opened up to general postings.

Re: What's happening with Perl News?

    Perl News is slowly withering away. The semi-official reason is that use.perl.org does a far better job that said section tries to address.

    Get yourself an account on use.perl, and then configure your account so that it sends you e-mail on the things that interest you. I guess a really nice hack would be to convince pudge to hack something up so that the reminders arrived as chatterbox messages :)


    print@_{sort keys %_},$/if%_=split//,'= & *a?b:e\f/h^h!j+n,o@o;r$s-t%t#u'
      Has anyone checked about a news feed from use.perl.org? A quick little hack could set it up to at least display the headlines (with links to the full story) in the news section here.
