The 2015 CPAN pull request challenge

Email me to sign up for the 2015 CPAN pull request challenge! Each month I'll assign you a CPAN distribution, randomly selected. You'll have a month to submit a pull request.

This idea was prompted by OALDERS's blog post on 24pullrequests, I had an idea for a more gentle challenge for 2015:

There are lots of things you could do, and it doesn't matter if you're not familiar with github — just let us know, and we'll help you get started. You don't need to be very experienced with Perl either: this is an opportunity to learn a bit more.

I think this is a good way to help others, learn a bit more about CPAN, and talk to random people in the community. Exposure to other peoples' code is also a good way to learn, even if sometimes you learn about things not to do :-)

Here's what I'm thinking for the 'rules':

Ideas welcome.
