As many of you have noticed and commented on, blogs.perl.org needs help and we're hoping this post might inspire some of you to volunteer time or creative suggestions.
Specifically, the blogging platform we're on has proved hard to maintain and while Dave Cross, Aaron Crane, SixApart and others have done great work on it, the tuits have run out.
You could check out the github repository, or perhaps offer help/suggestions on migrating to another blogging platform without losing information. Specific areas of attention that could use some help:
- Prev/Next links on all blogs are needed (including on the front page)
- Images are broken
- Bring back the syntax highlighting
You can read through the full list of issues to get an idea of some things to take a look at.
SixApart, Dave and Aaron have done great work here and while it started out promising, it's still missing key features to make it a suitable replacement for the defunct use.perl.org.
We'll be watching responses to this, so feel free to chime in. Let's make this a blog that people can be proud of.
