Subject Call for help with mod_perl advocacy !
Date Mon, 02 Aug 2004 17:24:57 GMT
As some people might now, OSCon (http://conferences.oreillynet.com/os2004/)
has just finished, and there was a mod_perl PR BOF were a bunch of mod_perl people
gathered around and discussed mod_perl PR and advocacy.

mod_perl is coming closer and closer to a 2.0 release (really soon now (tm))
and there was a lot of conversation about how we can insure that is comes
out with a big bang! We all agreed that there were a lot of things that could
be done to amplify the impact of mod_perl and increase our visibility and
user base.

Some of you might not have noticed, but take a look at the mod_perl usage
statistics, and you'll notice that they don't look as good as they used to
be.

So, we decided to revive the advocacy@perl.apache.org list, and use it
as a focal point for all the future efforts in making mod_perl more widely
known and used.

So, if you are interested in helping out, or if you just want to know what
is going on, please join us here :
http://perl.apache.org/maillist/advocacy.html#Subscription_Information

And you can get at the archive here :
http://perl.apache.org/maillist/advocacy.html#Searchable_Archives

Since there are no official minutes from the BOF, I'd encourage people that
were there and had interesting ideas to repeat those ideas on the advocacy
list in a little while (giving people time to subscribe to the list), and re-ignite
discussion there.

Another way to be helpfull, is to send out success stories. If your company is
running mod_perl and loves it, get us the story.
