Re: Apathetic and Lurkers
Message ID:
I agree.  I am not able to help at this point because I don't know enough.  I have had
no experience with the internals of perl, as I'm just a user of perl, and not a developer
of perl.  I will speak up when I have something to say, until then, I wish to remain
in the background learning what I can.  Since I can't code C, I have no experience 
writing RFCs, and I have no complaints with Perl, I don't feel I can add much to
the process at this point.  I am, by no stretch of the imagination, apathetic.

When I was a kid I liked to hang out in a mechanics shop while the wrenches overhauled the various motors in the shop.  This was in the 60's and 70's when an overhaul usually meant bolting on high performance additions to the family car.  I'm here with the same childish curiosity.  I'm watching the activity.  Speaking as a 37 year old kid it's fascinating.  I'm not apathetic about the rewrite, I just haven't seen anything yet that I really feel strongly about.  I'm sure that is to come.  At some point I would even like to help, but I haven't seen a place where I could make a positive contribution.  Just my $.02 worth.
