in reply to Perl Projects
A Perl Projects section would be interesting, but I don't think that it would be a great success, as I don't see where it would differ from Freshmeat except that it is for Perl only. Coordination and releases have to be done on a website and via a mailing list anyway (at least I think that this is more efficient than this forum)...
Releases of the code could be posted either as links or complete with the code under Code or something like that, mostly copying Freshmeat but maybe losing the platform focus and having a language focus instead.
Despite these negative comments, I'd appreciate it to be wrong in this case and have a flourishing community of people that release many useful programs as monks :).
