... about a company ... doesn't feel like the most important group of users to optimize for

I am sympathetic to all points of view in this discussion and neighbouring ones as a way to improve Perl. I also dont have much at stake except that I like Perl and right now building a tool using Perl - so 6month salary. But so far I have not seen anyone mentioning the investment, past, present and future of companies using Perl. That is the money at stake. And I have not heard anyone saying "on behalf of this company or the other we support or oppose these changes". And I am happy not to hear these financial arguments. On the contrary Because, it seems that Perl can pick and choose. But in real life this is not how it works. Companies will oppose or push standards or even legislature just for money. Just a sanity check on my side.

bw, bliako

    If I were to be charitable, I'd say it's because most of them are participating in the Tragedy of the Commons and not doing much of anything for p5p.

    (If I didn't care about being charitable, I'd ask why p5p should care about them.)
