  • It's not dead. It's merely resting.
    • *cough* I believe biologists have a special word to describe 'stable'. :) Leon was far too kind and perhaps it's time Jarkko went public with some of the similar concerns he has had of late.
      • Yes? I have problems not taking this a little bit personally you know. Probably because I'm not really proud of it myself. Anyhow you're right, as far as I'm concerned I have been buried in my new job, my new city, and a shitload of more or less related personal difficulties. This being combined with the fact that almost no-one cares about Perl 5 development anymore, at least not enough to organize things and make them happen. I will probably agree with anything that anybody could say, in public or not, abo
        • You shouldn't take it personally and if you did, I apologise. This situation has been coming since before P6 was announced. So many people talk about it but just not openly which only exacerbates the condition. If people were to talk about it more openly and start talking about the current state of affairs then it might alleviate the tension which I believe is responsible for a number of people finding other things to do with their time. People don't find tuits for things that they don't want to make time for anymore. P5 isn't the only part of perl experiencing necrosis. People care but are lost for a solution so they say nothing which, again, doesn't help either. I would have expected more of a fight to the death rather than a silent expiration for a language that has taken so much time and care from so many people to build....but this says a lot, too.

          When all that is left is personalities and press releases, all you've got are personalities and press releases.
