  • You don't think that the feeling of "no one wants to talk about problem X" and "There aren't enough people to do the work." are related?

    Or how about the barriers to entry to help out? Real or perceived I've noticed a definite feeling of "I would never deign to tell $perl_deity that $x is wrong. $perl_deity is so much smarter than me"

      "I would never deign to tell $perl_deity that $x is wrong. $perl_deity is so much smarter than me"

      That doesn't sound like a barrier to entry for helping out, that sounds like confusion about what the words "wrong" and "smarter" mean. If someone sees some '$x' they think is a problem, then either they're haven't researched it enough, or they are wrong and the documentation isn't clear enough about why, or they're right and the problem needs attention. As far as real barriers, there is no social barrier to helping out with Pugs. Audrey hands out commit bits like a drug dealer drumming up more business. Pugs seems like the ideal place to get started if one wants to help out. Once a new helper has familiarized themselves with Pugs they can easily move on to other areas.

      • "Audrey hands out commit bits like a drug dealer drumming up more business." LOL!

        If only there were more pushers, and maybe some money changing hands.

        I must confess that I have not been involved in Perl6 as much as I would like. I have enough demons as it is and not enough daemons.
