Hmm, on that idea, it might be nice to setup a list of projects
where some of the core members will be ready to mentor less
experienced people in exchange of their contribution.

There are many (most of) the CPAN authors who prefer to work on
their own and maybe get a patch here and there.

There is probably a much smaller number - like Uri - who would be
ready to spend time on mentoring less experienced people.

There are a few CPAN modules that are maintained by a group of
people (e.g. Moose, Catalyst) and there are applications such
as Bricolage or Padre with teams of developers.

Each project might include a description of the level of experience
required as some might be ready to take people with 0 perl knowledge
(e.g. Dreamwidth) while others expect the person to
understand OOP.

It can be as simple as a page on the TPF Perl 5 wiki.

What do you think?
