Renormalist, who also calls himself Steffen Schwigon, has been talking about a performance metric for Perl for at least two years. I am always amazed by people who can run a project with very little publicly seen result for such a long time and then come up with a comprehensive thing. As I understand having a standard way to measure the performance of perl can be important to some vendors. Hopefully, it will be interesting to people who are being involved in the development of perl as well.

A late Perl QA Hackathon 2012 post scriptum
Renormalist (Steffen Schwigon) was also in Paris working on some really boring stuff (his words). But wait, his benchmarks show that perl got 20% slower somewhere between 5.8 and 5.10 and stayed that way. Except, that it seems the latest changes in 5.15 got the speed back.
