The Perl neighborhood is in a shambles resulting from disputes regarding its (nonexistent) Code of Conduct, its (inconsistent) enforcement of neighborhood requirements, and an lack of ability to agree on what constitutes toxicity or a correct response to it.
At the very least 5 extraordinarily senior Perl neighborhood members have resigned from their positions and/or withdrawn from engaged on Perl itself to this point in 2021:
- Neighborhood Affairs Crew (CAT) chair Samantha McVey
- The Perl Basis (TPF) Board of Administrators member Curtis Poe (writer of Starting Perl and Perl Hacks)
- TPF Grant Committee member Elizabeth Mattijsen
- TPF Perl Steering Committee member, key Perl Core developer, and former pumpking Sawyer X
- Perl developer and SUSE engineer Sebastian Riedel
