Scriptorium: proposal for a new section

by Discipulus (Abbot)

Good morning

it is a lot of time i'm lurking in the monastery (yes i have to admit: is the only source of my XP points..) and it is a very comfortable place.

You can search, ask, be aware, get involved, contribute, help.. everything about Perl.
You can even have some fun (in a monastic way obviously..) and, walking in the cloister, listen in Abelardo and Ada Lovelace discepting about celestial spheres (implemented in Perl) or abuse of the patience of Erasmo asking him a childish question and get answered too.

I have also my private cell with my table and, on it, parchement and ink for free(many yaers before understanding the word 'scratchpad').
So, where is the scriptorium? Why there is not a place where I can start writing something and get others monks involved and contribute? A place like a foundry, forgery, blacksmithing or a scriptorium.

This section could be accessed directly from the gates and in user's homenode you can have links for every project you are partecipating, as you have group membership.
In the project page you can have an index showing the status and peoples involved, a cover, like a normal starting post, where you show the purpose and show the actual code, it will be fine for the maintainer or for everyone have the possibility to send privete messages to all the partecipants about news or release, you can have a form to sign in the project (and may be a check like 'do not spam me with private msg').

What do you think about?

Thanks for the attention.

there are no rules, there are no thumbs..

    I think that github has perfected collaborative development much better than perlmonks can. So I don't see much use for such a section.

        And in any case we wouldn't call it "Scriptorium" because ... Scriptorium. :-)

        I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
