What's the point of this message?

If you're trying to make things happen, I'd suggest that there are far  
better ways than insulting hostility.

Speaking of things happening, I was wondering why the following
information:

http://www.hsyndicate.org/news/4039070.html

was not yet relayed on the usual Perl info channels (use.perl, perlbuzz,
perlfoundation, etc).

Disclaimer the second: Perl news are happening so fast that the use perl
post went below my viewing window.

I'll now shut up in shame.

We have it on the german news site:

  (use.perl,

you can post it to use.perl yourself. I'm sure that someone would put it
on the frontpage

  perlbuzz,
   

Do you have sent an email to Andy?

 perlfoundation, etc).

I suspect that what you actually meant to say there was:

I see that TPF seems to be having problems keeping its archive or press
releases up to date. Or, perhaps it doesn't have the resources to
produce the number of press releases that it wants to. Either way, I'd
love to help out. So does anyone know who I should contact?

hth,

Renée already knows this, but:

People can always submit stories http://use.perl.org/submit.pl

Press releases never magically make it into any channel. PR people make
friends then pester them to run their story. Geeks, on the other hand,
think the merit of a story will carry it.

And, if someone has Perl news but doesn't want to do the work, just
send me the details and I'll write about it.

Well, honestly, it's not that simple. Even the people that do want to
help wrestle with the web strategy and various levels of approval and
permission they need to get to do something. It's readily apparent who
the contactsw should be, but getting past the offer to help is a pretty
high barrier.

I suspect someone with the right sets of permissions needs to trim the
website and point major portions of it to the wiki, which solves most
of those problems.

Oh, I'm totally awar of all that. I was just trying to point out that an
offer of help is likely to be better received than just saying wtf.
