Perl 5 is already very mature, anyone who needs it already has it (it's shipped with every standard Linux distro), knows how to get it (perl.org/get.html is linked from perl.org) or is capable of finding out how (Google).

In contrast, Perl 6 is still in its infancy and a lot of people still think it's vaporware. If getperl.org points to a Perl 6 download that would counteract that.

That said I don't feel strongly about it either way, I would be happy to relinquish control of the domain(s), or even split them both up (getperl.org is currently a DNS redirect to getperl6.org) and put the files into a public repo (the pugs repo, perhaps? If no one minded).
I only intended to use getperl6.org, but seeing that getperl.org wasn't taken (I thought for sure a domain-squatter would have already grabbed it) I registered it on a whim. So really, I am open to suggestions.

It is hardly forcing :) but if people want to register their local equivalent, and feel it is necessary, they might as well go for it.

For example I won't be registering getperl.co.nz because I doubt it would get a lot (or any) use. I suppose that would be different for non-English domains (.de, .fr etc.) though, where they could be translated.
