So, the main test suite is passing 100% now, and only one small OO bug remains in the extension tests. That's the good news.
The not-so-good news is that Cabalization triggered uncovered a bunch of issues previously swept over the carpet: where to install pugs-specific files, where to install modules that are useful for any perl6 implementation, and how the directory structure interact with Debian, FreeBSD, Win32, and various other hierarchy systems.
In addition to this, there were various issues around GHC 6.4/6.4.1, Cabal 1.0/1.1.4, embedding Perl5 (shared/static), embedding Parrot (0.3.0/trunk). Thanks to patient and helpful feedback from #perl6, I think we figured out solutions to all of them -- hmm, famous last words.
All in all, I'd like to thank rafl, iblech, gaal, scook0, geoffb, vkon, xinming -- among many others I'm sure I missed -- for ironing out this complex interactions between build systems so readily and thoroughly, and I hope tomorrow's release will prove our effort worthwhile. See you!
