  • Hey, Nick.

    I knew you are always dealing with the next Perl. But... version 10? :D

    • In case you are seriously wondering – people have taken to referring to Perl 5 version numbers like 5.8.9 and 5.10.1 as “Perl 5, version 8.9” or “Perl 5, version 10.1”.

      And apparently, Nick is lampooning that; apparently he thinks it’s silly? (Personally I like that tentative new convention.)

      • I was really wondering.

        A friend told me that current solution to Perl 6 taking so long, would be taking Perl 5.10.0 or Perl 5.12.0 and call it Perl 6.

        The real new Perl 6 currently in development would get the sequential number of the previous in existence.

      • Not silly. I agree with the intent. I don't agree with the current "solution", as I think that it has the potential to cause a new can of version number woes. As if we didn't have enough already.

  • … to use marketing first.

    (In my opinion, this one is a good feature of marketing.pm, mind.)
