  • Gábor Szabó - גאבור סבו commented on A late Perl QA Hackathon 2012 post scriptum

    I was wondering why someone cares about 5.8 and 5.10 now that we are heading to 5.16 but then I
    click through the "results" link added in the comment.

    The graph there shows - if I understand it - that starting with 5.10 (an including 5.14) perl is 20% slower than 5.8.

    What I can also see is that since April the 5.15 branch got the 20% back. What happened? Have you found the issue and was it fixed?

    No live auction please - lightening talks at the end of every day is good.

    If there are things like books or t-shirts to sell, a silent auction will do. A live auction is only interesting if there are truly exceptional things. But if you have none, no need to make up something artificial. As Matt noted, we no longer need the auction whether as funding source or as a community event.

    Also, I'm taking the opportunity of being currently unemployed to modernize the Act hosting and finally migrate to the PSGI port. So adding new features (like QR codes badges) should be easier and faster.

    Go for it, Andrew!

    Now, if only we could find out where YAPC::NA::2013 will be held ... :-)
