in reply to P5EE ... get involved!

A recent posting by Stephen to the P5EE mailing list had a current status list of his development tree P5Eex::Blue. Stephen has been a driving force in getting P5EE started and his posting should give an idea as to the layout of the project. It is not however set in stone and should be viewed as an attempt to consolidate, organize and create a consistent interface to dozens of existing CPAN modules along with new ones. P5EE has also set the minimum Perl version to 5.005_03 in realization that not systems can easily upgrade to the 5.6.x or beyond which will hopefully increase the available install base.

P5EE is attempting to bring together the power of Perl under a more consistent and stable umbrella. Previous discussion on the P5EE mailing list lead us to the conclusion that Perl is not being pushed because there are too many ways to do things and this is confusing to developers that may not have fallen deeply in love with Perl. So in order to combat that P5EE hopes to combine numerous CPAN modules at a particular version number and only allow for adding newer versions once regression testing has been done. Consistency, easier interface, set release points and stricter code testing are just some the things I hope P5EE will provide the Perl community.

P5EE will hopefully become somewhat of an easy to install addition to Perl that provides developers, administrators, etc. a stable set of Enterprise ready tools to interact with a plethora of current technologies.
