This is a new task in perltodo:

Tasks that need only a little Perl knowledge
     Fix POD errors in Perl documentation
         Perl documentation is furnished in POD (Plain Old 
Documentation); see
         perlpod.  We also have a utility that checks for various errors 
in this
         documentation: t/porting/podcheck.t.  Unfortunately many files have
         errors in them, and there is a database of known problems, kept in
         t/porting/known_pod_issues.dat.  The most prevalent errors are 
lines
         too wide to fit in a standard terminal window, but there are more
         serious problems as well; and there are items listed there that 
are not
         in fact errors.  The task would be to go through and clean up the
         documentation.  This would be a good way to learn more about Perl.
