I updated the link to sources (brian d foy's repo is 404) and listed rjbs as the current pumpking.

That's a different repository though, isn't it?

I think that repository is the only one supported copy left.
At least BinGOs at #p5p pointed me here.

http://github.com/briandfoy/perlfaq is 404, and there's no p5pfaq.pod in https://github.com/tpf/perlfaq.
I also found https://github.com/pne/perlfaq, which looks like a copy of briandfoy's repo, but I don't think anybody uses it.

Looking at git log | tail, briandfoy's repo was forked from http://svn.perl.org/modules/perlfaq/ and p5pfaq.pod was added there later.
And tpf's copy is imported from perl blead.

I don't know what to conclude out of all this mess... I'm just a newbie who wanted to read the rules and ended up patching them instead ;)

@ranguard where did the perlfaq end up being maintained? Back in the perl5 repository again?

@ranguard ranguard Merge pull request #43 from berekuk/p5pfaq-updates
p5p-faq isn't part of perlfaq  (it doesn't get distributed as part of Core Perl or uploaded to CPAN), so this is the right place to updated it. I've only just found that historically it did used to be on the faq site, I also stopped linking to it from dev.perl.org a while ago because it was so out of date and didn't really have much useful information in it.

So I'm going to merge, and I'll also ping #p5p to review if they want to updated it further or if we should just redirect to http://dev.perl.org/perl5/ what has the key information that is in the faq.
