  • I couldn't understand what Nicholas was trying to say when he posted in 'Those who cannot learn from history' this sorry, sorry link

    http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl6.meta/2001/02/msg647.html [perl.org]

    Now I do. Look at it and blush those of you who are happy at driving out a productive volunteer.

    At least silly Simon could eventually apologize before he too crashed and burned.

    Do I think the frequent release schedule is helping Parrot ? Not as much as Jonathan is. At the moment the focus is right back on the performance of the VM that Dan was so adamant about. Have those that succeeeded him really made a better Parrot ?

    P6 is moving forward because the spec is in an implementable state. Not because Dan was wasting time, or not doing something someone else felt was better PR.

    • What exactly am I wrong about?

      That 5.10.0 contained regressions?

      That they have not been fixed in over a year?

      That this contradicts the argument in favour of holding back releases on grounds of quality?

      That that means it needs to be possible to cut another release soon as a contingency in case of mistakes?

    • What Aristotle said.

      Look at it and blush those of you who are happy at driving out a productive volunteer.

      Your implication is complete fiction. I invite you to read, for example, everything I've written about the Perl 5 release process. If you can find a single personal attack against any person, committer or not, I will immediately offer a personal apology.

      (You will also find that this debate has been lopsided in that respect.)
