Monthly Report - July

Last month I nearly broke one of my new year resolutions i.e submit 50+ PR every month in the year 2019. At the start of the last day of the month i.e. 31st July, I had 45 PR submitted and had 8 working hours to do the remaining 5 PR to reach the target. It was a working day, so finding time to do PR was even more difficult. Now a days, I found CPAN authors don't leave anything for me to do. Luckily by end of the day, I managed to reached the target. With this now, I have completed 7 consecutive months where I submitted 50+ PR. I am going to be away for a week next week for The Perl Conference in Riga, so it is going to be very tight to cover up the time. With Perl Weekly Challenge taking most of my spare time, I find it difficult to do my other CPAN contributions. Having said that, I am pleased with the way Perl Weekly
Challenge has been supported by both Perl5 and Perl6 community.

Let's take a quick look through last month main activities.

  • Git Commits
