Pilgrimage to a Perl 6 Patch

[ #15802 ]
You're reading the first step on a pilgrimage to a patch ... a patch to Perl 6.

Not a big patch, I hasten to add. But a small contribution that I hope will bring Perl 6 a little closer to reality.

I, like lots of other Perl devotees, have seen the promise of Perl 6 and can't wait for the day they can download - perl6.tar.gz.

But, being a pilgrimage, it's as much about the journey as it is the destination.

And this 'gwass hopper' has quite a long way to go. With no CPAN ID, no CVS experience, and too much work to do at the day job ( my journal entries over the coming months will highlight the technical twists and turns, hassles and hurdles, I needed to overcome on the way to my first Perl 6 Patch.

So if you’re thinking of embarking on a similar journey, or just like the idea of applying a vicarious patch, then pack your bags … we’re about to start.

If you’re a seasoned traveller, who has walked the route before, think back to the route you took and give us your best directions on the way.

OK … Let’s Go!
