Debian Perl Rolling Sprint at DebCamp 2018


The Debian Perl Group conducted a “Rolling Sprint” during DebCamp 2018 in Hsinchu, Taiwan from July 21 to July 27.

The term “Rolling Sprint” describes an event that extended over the whole DebCamp week with the opportunity for people to “hop on” and “hop off” for one or more days. This made it possible for persons who had more plans for DebCamp than one single area of work to participate according to their availability.

The structure of the “Rolling Sprint” was:

Altogether 4 people took part in one or more of the coordination meetings and/or work sessions: bremner, intrigeri, kanashiro, nodens. Additionally, a few other team members participated remotely in the sprint (mostly asynchronously due to timezone differences).

The participants would like to thank the sponsors of DebConf18 and the DebConf Team for making this sprint possible.
