Message ID:
Sawyer, Rik, and Neil had the fourth meeting of the PSC on Friday 22nd Jan 2021

Jason McIntosh (JMAC) has done several pieces of work on documentation, including the creation of perldocstyle[1]. He would like to form a documentation team, and has proposed it on p5p. We think this is a great idea, and hope that others join in. We've given him a commit bit.

We reviewed a document with a collection of thoughts and ideas, following our previous discussion on how ideas for changes to Perl can result in a merged PR. There were some core themes to the discussion: everyone in the Perl community should have a voice; we don't want an overly bureaucratic process; and people don't want to put effort into something that has no chance of being merged. We converged on something that we think is fit for purpose. This is going to be separately written up and shared on p5p for feedback.

We had an initial discussion about going away, what people's concerns are, and possible options. We agreed we'll go away and read up all the emails on this, and discuss it in more detail next time, to determine what, if anything, we can or should do on this front.
