Perl6 - ROLES
Message ID:
From the July 18, 2000 afternoon meeting at TPC4.

Roles on the perl6 project:

  language design
  quality assurance
  doc repository
  internals [1]
  spokesdroid [2]
  project manager [3]
  customer relations [4]
  perl5 maintainer [5]

[1] Dan Sugalski will serve as point person for perl6 internals design.
    Other p5p's are encouraged to join in as a greek chorus.
[2] brian d foy will work mostly behind the scenes in this role.
    This role involves gathering the position of the perl6 community
    and presenting it to the public in a single voice with a 
    consistent message.
[3] Nathan Torkington has agreed to take the role of project manager
    for perl6 until he can find someone to take over.  
    This position involves controlling the release of information about
    perl6, messages about the project, etc.
    Early discussions about this role mentioned the possibility of 
    recruiting someone with managerial experience but not necessarily 
    coming from a technical background or even a Perl background.
[4] Dick Hardt's role for perl6 will be to talk to customers with a
    significant interest in Perl's stability and growth (e.g. Yahoo, 
    investment banks, etc.) and forward these concerns to the perl6 
[5] The perl5 maintainers will coordinate with the perl6 project to
    insure major bugfixes and features addressed with perl6 are 
    backported to perl5, as warranted.  This position will be required
    until the point when perl5 is desupported to the same extent as 

Any mistakes, errors, etc. are purely my own.  Please send corrections,
clarifications or requests for clarification directly to me as to reduce
chatter on the bootstrap list.  

This is a living document and will be updated as required.
