Updating information for perl5-porters-faq mail response
Message ID:
The situation:

Perl is developed on GitHub now. It can be read from pod/perlgit.pod:

> All of Perl's source code is kept centrally in a Git repository at
> I<>.
> You can make a read-only clone of the repository by running:
>   % git clone git:// perl

but when a newbie sends a mail to <> he gets a 
reply from the distant September of 2003:

>     The FAQ was last updated Fri Sep 26 2003.
>     Its primary author was Simon Cozens. It's currently maintained by Rafael
>     Garcia-Suarez.

Of course there is no any information about perl git repo and the 
current development process there. It confuses a little bit. So may be 
it's time for updating information in such case? If yes what should I 
do? Is it necessary to create an issue on GitHub or questions about 
perl5-porters mail-list is not for it? Or in whole this email is enough?
