Perl Steering Council, meeting #003, 2020-01-15
Message ID:
Hi everyone,

On the 15th, Rik, Neil, and I had our third PSC (Perl Steering Council) meeting.

At this meeting, we discussed emails we received about additional
syntax to the language and Perl 7. Our official position is that we
are interested in advanced capabilities added to the language but
cannot commit to a specific design or implementation. At the moment,
Perl 7 is one of our urgent upcoming topics.

We also informed The Perl Foundation that I (Sawyer) would continue
the current TPF maintenance grants. The Steering Council will assign a
grant manager for future maintenance grants based on member capacity.

Our most significant discussion this recent meeting was about our
guidelines for changes to the language. There are considerations of
security, stability, and innovation. Our interest is in clarifying
this and providing the tools for all of us (the Steering Council, the
Perl Core, and the Porters as a whole) to discuss proposed changes. We
are currently working on a framework for these conversations and will
continue the conversation in future meetings.

As usual, we will update p5p on our future meetings as we conduct them.

-- Sawyer.
