Regarding the closure of rt.cpan.

Let me preface this short post with this, I don't have the solution to this problem. Perhaps there is someone in the wider Perl space who is well placed to pick this up, but there seems to be little going on in terms of community engagement.

In the first week of 2021 I noticed a link to this sunset message for rt.cpan behind displayed on the rt.cpan homepage. Firstly I believe the notification on the page could be highlighted better, grey on grey, on a page with lots of grey isn't exactly eye catching.

The Perl Conference - Glasgow 2018 - A summary

This was a very busy week, the conference started on the first day of school (ever for my kids!) so I was late every day :P I met a lot of great people, some all too briefly, and learned a lot of interesting things through conversation, unrelated to the talks below.
