  Comment: Installable! (Score 1) on 2009.08.24 2:14

Running "make install" will install Rakudo and its libraries into the Parrot installation that was used to build it, and then the executables will work when invoked from any directory.

So this means that (a) it can be installed as a package and (b) real live scripts in random directories can use it? Yay! This has been holding me back from playing with it.

  Comment: For me it's about control (Score 1) on 2009.08.18 1:26

Attached to: Whither SourceForge?
Sourceforge is traditionally a CVS/SVN host. I liked hosting my CVS and SVN repos myself because it's not easy to clone them and I didn't want to give up control of my change history to a third party. I saw lots of projects on sourceforge but I never ever considered using it myself.

Since github is git based, this is no longer an issue. It costs me nothing to push my stuff up to github--I always end up with a full repo in my local copy. No history or metadata is out of my reach. I believe they even use git for their custom web pages--meaning even your project docs and such are similarly protected.

With github you won't lose anything if they go out of business or become evil.
