Proposing guidelines for Perl 7 docs

I recently submitted a grant proposal for researching and writing Perl 7 language-documentation guidelines, and it just entered a public-comments period.

It follows a grant-funded project I delivered earlier this year that revised two particularly problematic sections of Perl’s core documentation. Here, I propose the first steps of a major project to generalize that work across the full vastness of the language’s documentation collection.

The grants committee typically allows five days or so for public feedback before making its vote, so if you feel moved to say something about this proposal, aim to do it over the weekend, I suppose!
