=for porters

Absolute ages ago, in Q4 of 2020, Jason McIntosh was proposing <> that we officially form a Perl documentation team.  This had a bit of behind-the-scenes activity, but was unfortunately often overshadowed by other goings-on.  Today, we're happy to say that this is a done deal:  the docs team is now a thing, Jason's going to continue working on it and, as you may already know, he's organizing a documentation audit <> sponsored by Google's Season of Docs program.

The charter for the team is now in a pull request <>, which we'll merge after 5.35.0 opens, just to keep life simple.  Jason has been added to the Core Team (q.v. perlgov) in a pull request <> that may or may not get applied before 5.34.0 is released.

Neil, Nicholas, and I are all of the opinion that Perl's documentation needs improvement on a number of axes, and hope that this is a big step in making that happen.  I'm sure Jason's got plenty to keep him busy, but he should probably get ready to field some pretty-pleases from us in the not too distant future!
