Yes, I think they should be.
I think your best bet is probably to advertise the job on
- I can also post a brief note to the London
perlmongers list if you like; there are several overseas members of the list
and I'm sure someone would be able to pass the information on to a suitable
mailing list more local to you.
I think that in terms of the OpenGuides component you're probably looking
Template Toolkit, SQL, and database administration - assuming, that is,
you'll be using the same person for maintenance as for development. Let me
know if you want any help in fleshing out the requirements a bit more.
It's quite possible that there would be a need for some enhancements to
OpenGuides itself in order for your programmer to be able to do what you
want. We're generally quite open to that sort of thing, especially if we
don't have to do the work ourselves, though the final say lies with Dominic
Hargreaves, the release manager. (OpenGuides has an extensive test suite,
and any new additions would need to come along with their own tests, hence
my inclusion of that issue in the previous paragraph.)
Anyway, it all sounds good. I'd be tempted to offer to do it myself, but
I just wouldn't have the time on top of my day job.
