  • Actually, Parrot _does_ receive funding from the Perl Foundation. See [] for details.

    In regards to the IRC complainer, I can't see how this would slow the project down. It's not like I, as grant manager, am in there telling people what to do (or not do). I just approve milestone payments as milestones are reached, and send reports to NLNet on Parrot progress.
    • I could have been more clear. No one involved with Parrot has received funding from TPF in at least a year, to my knowledge. Further, it looks as if there won't be any payment for the PDD milestones, if Allison finishes them, as she is ineligible to receive payment from TPF, as a boardmember.

      • Payments for design milestones go to Chip, and for implementation to Leo. I will be approving a design milestone payment as soon as I get around to writing the latest grant update, from what I've seen completed these past two months.
  • I was briefly confused: chromatic thinks this person is wrong?? Then I realized that the person had said that *parrot* was the quagmire and *pugs* was racing along. I guess sheer disbelief prevented me from reading it correctly the first time.
    • I wouldn't necessarily describe either as racing along, but I believe that Parrot has made more externally visible progress in the past six months. That could be very much a product of my experience, however.

  • Certainly Pugs is not communicating as much as Parrot these days. I have nothing but praise for #parrot, and particle++ in particular, for keeping the monthly release coming.

    Once I survive this serious hepatitis that kept me chained to the hospital bed (which also explained the intense, mysterious drowsiness in the past couple months), I'll start repopulating the blog and new [] workspace, and (of course) cutting releases.

    That's all I can say right now.

    • You certainly have my well wishes.

      Might it be possible to parallelize the release management? So far, that seems to be the biggest improvement in Parrot's progress. I wonder if something similar could benefit Pugs as well when life happens.

      • Well, so far, we've release with the new scheme. I have high hopes for it. But we've still got a ways to go.
        • Why did I think we had a December release? What day is today? How many fingers am I holding up? Didn't I just take a vacation?
