  • I bet I could even help him check out Parrot on his laptop such that he could type cd languages/perl6/ and make test and see for himself how things are.

    It's not about me, it's about everyone else. I'm not the one asking where it's at, because I know the "it'll be done when it's done answer." It's for everyone else. It's for the guys at the Linux user group meeting I went to last night who when they heard I used Perl immediately asked "When is Perl 6 coming out?"

    Why is it so awful that people wan

    • Patrick has made a number of excellent progress reports recently - http://use.perl.org/~pmichaud/journal [perl.org]

      chromatic has been posting meeting minutes from the p6 developers for ages - http://use.perl.org/~chromatic/journal [perl.org]

      There's a Pugs Wiki [pugscode.org] with links to lots of useful stuff like the documentation [perlcabal.org],
      the Pugs Blog [blogs.com], logs of the Pugs IRC channel [perlgeek.de], a "run perl 6 in your browser [pugscode.org] interface, and the TPF Perl 6 Wiki [perlfoundation.org].

      I found those by using only one resource as a starting point: Google for "perl 6" and clicking around.

      • It would be nice if perl.org's information on Perl 6 was not so outdated. Maybe its perl6 pages could just link to the wiki. It would be nice if the p6l summaries started again, but I sure as hell don't have the time, and I don't know who does.

        I'm sure I could find a way to update them once in a while, but I certainly don't have the time to maintain them as a long-term project (and I think I ought to be writing code or documentation instead). This is one of our biggest problems; we don't know where peo

        • Yeah, I am not arguing that anyone should be taken off doing what they're doing. I'm just saying what would be nice.

          Pie would be nice, too. Chocolate silk with a graham cracker crust. Mmm!

          Is the Perl 6 wiki the most kept-up-to-date place? I wouldn't mind spending a little time finding and trying to deal with a few of the top Google results to get them to point to the right place, either with a link or a redirection. Like, a few hours at least. Let me know and I'll give it a quick go.

            Let's use it that way for now. If you (or anyone reading this) updates the wiki, I'll get parrotcode.org and dev.perl.org/perl6 updated to point to the wiki.

            • I don't update the wiki. I only keep a corner of my eye pointed at Parrot and Perl 6. I meant: if the TPF P6 wiki is the best resource (and it seems to be) then I will work on getting other resources to point to it. I'll drop perl.org a line about dev.perl.org, and will update other wikis around.
