24pullrequests is an annual project that runs every December to encourage contributions to open source.  Projects are organized by technology and types of contributions that are needed.

There are only eleven Perl projects so far, so add yours to help improve visibility and maybe get some help.

Three projects that I’m involved with could use some help.

  • ack, the grep-like code search tool is working towards a beta release for version 3.  There are many documentation changes I’d like to make in 3.000, including a cookbook, and it would be great if I could get some docs written by someone with a fresh set of eyes.
  • Perl::Critic, the static code analyzer for Perl 5
  • vim-perl is all the syntax highlighting and other magic that happens in vim.

Leave a comment with links for other projects that need some love.
