### Converted Parrot VM to Git
Over ten years of history across two version control systems was converted,
-and much of the build process had to be refactored to use Git instead of Subversion.
+and large parts of the configure subsystem had to be refactored to use Git instead of Subversion.
+This also involved writing developer documentation on the new Git workflow, as well as a
+document describing Git terminology.

+### Helped add and test IPv6 support to Parrot
+This was no minor feat, as Parrot supports Linux, *BSD, Windows and Solaris.
### PL/Parrot : Parrot VM embedded into PostgreSQL
-This makes PIR, Parrot Intermediate Representation, available as PL language, which
-stored procedures can be written in. It also allows for any language running on Parrot
-to easily become PL.

+This uses PL/Parrot to embed Rakudo Perl 6 and allows writing stored
procedures in Perl 6. For instance, a Perl 6 grammar can be defined once and then
every call to a stored procedure can see if it parses in that grammar.

### Jitterbug : Continuous integration system for Git
This continuous integration system currently runs test suites and emails on
build failures. It currently knows how to run tests for Perl 5, Perl 6, Ruby,
Parrot and Makefile-based projects. Running Python and Javascript test suites
are planned features. Currently Jitterbug drops in as a post-receive hook on
Github, but it can also be used with pure-Git.
+### Math::GSL
+This CPAN modules allows access to the GNU Scientific Library, written in C, from Perl 5.
+This allows scientists and researchers to access the thousands of scientific computing
+functions in GSL from an quick-to-write dynamic language.

### WWW::Phylobox : Perl 5 interface to phylobox.com
Phylobox.com is a web app on Google App Engine that helps evolutionary biologists
visualize phylogenies, which are graphs of how species and groups of species are related.
