Well, just looking back through Perl News
reveals the announcement of an IRC channel, modules releases, new books in print, an ActivePerl release and an interview with Larry Wall. From this I deduce that announcing channels, modules, books, code and interviews is approved of.

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

tags should generally be avoided. If they must

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
