  • It's wonderful to see this post. With leo and you both journaling, the visibility of Perl 6 development will be much enriched.

    A small nitpick, lest people stumble into an empty channel -- Pugs's IRC server is #perl6, not The social atmosphere of freenode is of communication between various language/project communities, which is methinks essential to Perl 6 in general and Pugs in particular.

    As for funding, I've said in PA01 that it would be more helpful to donate time to

      Righto, thanks for the correction.

      As my six-month sabbatical is drawing to a close soon, I'd certainly welcome sponsorship, from TPF or other places.

      You hear that folks (especially the company who asked me about it at YAPC)? Get cracking. :)

      Even better if we can get a round of public review for the current beta of Artistic license, so CPAN authors and other Pugs hackers can help improving it.

      That's the plan (as I mentioned

      Huh...I thought it was the IRCOPs sending 14-line global messages every half hour (followed immediately by another 1d4 to correct typos in the original) in order to beg for money or apologize for decoupling Europe while in a drunken stupor.


  • Lots of details and good points about the whole secrecy thing (took 20 minutes), but then accidentally closed the window and lost it. Crap. So here's the questions in point form. Don't interprate it as agression. - Given the Summer of Code projects have started, why can't we see what they are beyond a title. - What on earth is "Extended Type Inference System for Perl 5" and should I care or help out? - For the benefits of people like the Java::Swing authors that have decent Perl/Java integration working
    • errr... wrong formatting option. might want to view as source. hating not being able to edit after posting. :(
    • Too much to reply to all at once. I'll split it out over several journal posts.

      BTW, thanks again for the PPI grant, I'll be done on Tuesday (you can call Ovid off now).

      Thanks for doing your part of making grant results public by writing up a follow-up article []. This is a responsibility of all grant recipients, but far to many of them just drop off the face of the planet after the grant is "finished" (it ain't finished 'til ya' tell folks it's finished), even with Ovid's wonderful skills at hounding p

  • How has ponie been doing? I can't seem to find much recent news about it. Is it still alive? Has there been any progress? Where can I get a copy? I hope it's not dead, it was an interesting idea.
    • Ponie is progressing, athough progress seems to be stalls then jumps, even when the effort is applied smoothy. A development snapshot was released a couple of weeks ago, announced in Allison's state of the carrot at YAPC::NA. I sent an announcement to the ponie-dev mailing list, and it's also waiting in the use.perl story submission queue [] for a use.perl editor's tender loving care.

      Details of what's new are in the README [], and you can also view the most up-to-date version of the Roadmap [] in the subversion rep
