  • You seem to be pissed off because I rejected a badly-written patch of yours about a pointless new keyword, and now you're going at war. What's your point in spreading all this FUD really ? Bring Perl 5 to an end ? Make me quit P5P ?

    And seriously are you really believing all this nonsense you're writing about releasing ?

    • Thank you for finally responding directly to me.

      You seem to be pissed off...

      I'm not angry. I'm sad.

      ... because I rejected a badly-written patch of yours about a pointless new keyword....

      Even after all of the complaints about people who talk more than they code, I don't expect standing ovations for producing code, but I would appreciate at least an acknowledgement that I did something about it.

      This is the first time (to my knowledge) you've made any comment about the implementation of the patch. If you

      • Lies and plain lies. I already commented on your patch on P5P. Several [mpe.mpg.de] times [mpe.mpg.de]. But you probably choose to ignore any opinion that's not in line with your ideology?

        There is a plan for 5.12, see for example here [mpe.mpg.de] which is a recent statement of intention. Concerning fixing release dates, I consider that pointless [blogspot.com] and I don't understand why you think release dates matter.

        Also, I don't like at all the way you systemically mischaracterise 5.10 by spreading FUD -- yes, I'm using the word again -- about how it would

          I chose the word implementation deliberately, Rafael. I'm a careful writer. You're a careful reader.

          I don't like at all the way you systemically mischaracterise 5.10 by spreading FUD...

          The quote in the linked message was an analogy. To my recollection, I have never suggested that all new features in Perl 5 require use feature, only that some new features do. As I have written many times, my concern is that this is the wrong default, especially in the future.

          ... what is sad, is that less experienced users do.

          May I suggest that some of them have experienced the pain I describe and would like that pain to go away?

          Sorry, but I can't take you seriously anymore;

          Again, how much code do I have to write for you to answer my other questions?
