There are several feed aggregators for Perl, but now there is going to be one less. Since Planet Perl mostly duplicates the efforts of other aggregators, such as Perlsphere, it’s just extra work for the Perl NOC crew to maintain it. Planet Perl was the first long running aggregator, but since it started many others started and survived. Perl NOC announced that Planet Perl going dormant. It’s not exactly disappearing, but it will be in a deep sleep for a long time. If the community ever needs it again, they can easily wake it up.
