Since there doesn't seem to be much happening in the news section thesedays (I bet there are people here who don't even know we have one) how about opening it up for general posting? I can see a number of posts in other sections that would go much better there:
- Announcements of code that are too big for the catacombs
- A place for people to draw attention to new Apocalypses, etc (they have been going in meditations lately)
- Parties, events and conferences that may be marginally related to perl
- Other stuff that I'm not lively enough to think of
The moderation system seems to cope fairly well with posts in other sections and I'm sure that everyone in the community would have a fairly similar idea of what news would be appropriate
I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
