What CPANTS needs
Message ID:
Here's what CPANTS needs to get moving that I can't handle myself...

    A mailing list. or something.  Ask?
    Testing hardware until the distributed client stuff is working.  Kurt?
       Perl-labs want to jump in?
    A web site. and were
       suggested but I'd like the public face to have its own domain to
       promote its independence of CPAN and Perl.
    A document repository.  CVS or whatever.  Nothing fancy.  Ask?

That should get things moving.  I have also have specific needs for
volunteers.  There's alot of programming involved that I have no idea
how to do.

    Distributed systems.
    Building secure sandboxes for programs to play in.
    Lexical analysis of Perl programs.
    Experience with the B compiler and modules.
    Experience in quality assurance and code reviews.
    Experience in large-scale automation.

I'm sure people will be knocking down my inbox to volunteer their
time, RIGHT?

PS  CPANTS currently lives at

Plus I remember being impressed with Ada because you could write an
infinite loop without a faked up condition.  The idea being that in Ada
the typical infinite loop would be normally be terminated by detonation.
