This is the request I received from the CeBIT contact person.
While we applied as "Perl" we are going to present a number of projects.
I think the descriptions we provide to CeBIT should include both a general
text about Perl - the language - and text about each individual project we
are going to be able to represent.

I'll need lots of help in this, both because I am not familiar with
many projects
and because my writing skills in English aren't that good.
Also I am not sure, but I think adding a German version to the text would make a
lot of sense.

So which Perl project wants to be represented? Will you send a project member to
represent it or would you help one of the participants to get up-to
speed to show a
demo and explain the benefits of your product/project?

ps. I am going to blog about this soon, but I'd be happy if you
already forwarded
my request and the list of questions to the project(s) you are involved with.

projects on our websites and Therefor we'd like to use a couple of
questions we'd like you to answer:


Q. Short and sweet: How would you describe your project in one or two

Q. When did the project begin?

Q. How many active members does the project have?

Q. Why was the project created?

Q. Why should a CeBIT visitor come to your booth?

Q. Who do you make your software for?

Q. Where do you see your biggest current challenges?

Q. If you could hire a full-time project developer now, what problem should
he or she be ready to solve?

Q. Under which license is the software currently offered?

A picture tells more than words: We can put up to 20 screen shots
online, please send them in with captions!

Since the CeBIT will send out a press information as well, and publish
the info on their web sites, we kindly request you to send in the
short description latest until February, 2.

Thanks for your help!
