Oh, the irony of it

[ #35521 ]

Will the Parrot team finish Perl 6 before I finish converting the Perl 5 history to git?

Who knows ... but it looks like I will end up missing my original target release date. I just haven't had the energy recently to burn the midnight oil for it.

However, I have managed to knock off one of the reasonably difficult TODO items in my Perforce importer. I think this one was responsible for most of the discrepancies between the preview one and the rsync blead. There's a couple of problems of this scale left, which will culminate in the nastiest queries and techniques employed by the tool being removed.

I'm quite happy that I developed this along the way using the stable development style, otherwise it would have been truly shattered by now :-). At least when progress is slow, it can be steady.

Well, with a bit of luck I'll solve the other two biggies with a couple of those "magic" nights you get every now and then over the next few weeks. I'll post here once I get a decent preview export out of this version, and will continue to update as I work on the project.
