[[DebianDeveloper|Debian developers]] can join easily. Simply drop your Perl module package (see the [[http://pkg-perl.alioth.debian.org/git.html|Git guide]]) and mail a note to the group. All Debian developers already have commit access. Remember to check the sources back in to avoid a fork :)
Debian Perl Group
We have recently migrated all the Git repositories to salsa.debian.org. Documentation updates are pending.
"Please consider joining the Debian Pkg-perl group, helping us co-maintain our packages, and having us co-maintain yours." (Gunnar Wolf (not only) in February 2006)
Debian Perl Group founded message sent in Jan 2004.
These are our goals:
We want to constantly improve the coverage of available perl modules in debian. Specifically, we aim to:
- Adopt orphaned Perl module packages.
- Handle the RFP (Request For Package) of Perl modules.
- Document and improve the usage of tools like dh-make-perl.
- Help with bugs in Perl packages.
- Keeping Perl packages in the Debian archive as up-to-date as possible.

How to get involved
Here's the short version for those only interested in the technical details:
A good way to get involved is to introduce yourself on the mailing list. A simple email about yourself saying what your goals are, how you might like to contribute, and what you would like to get from the group is the standard introduction protocol. It does not have to be formal of course. Here is a recent example: example introduction email
Technically speaking you need to have an account (possibly after registering one) at salsa.debian.org and include your salsa username in the introductory mail to <debian-perl AT lists DOT debian DOT org>; one of the project admins will add you to the group.
After that it is simply a matter of finding modules or packages that you use or are interested in. All packaging is now done using git, so follow the guide for git (link above) and you are off and running!
Dump your lib*-perl package here
If you don't have time even for this, just send a signed mail to email@example.com and list the packages you want us to take over.
