  • Perl6 has been going for 8ish years. That is about the amount of time between the release of perl 1 and perl 5.01
    • I don't care about calendar time. Let's compare paid developer time.

      • The "contribute money" page at donate.perlfoundation.org does not allow you to explicitly specify "I want my donation to go towards Perl 6 development".

        Seems like it would be nice if there was an easy and centralized way for money contributors to pump cash directly into specific tasks needing to be done for Perl 6... Not sure how fair this would work out in practice though.

        • Ever since P6 was a project and a divisive one at that, I asked that such a restricted giving mechanism be put in place so that people could direct their donations to the projects they were interested in. I'm still waiting. It'll likely happen about the same time P6 is released. :)
          • There has to be some reason why that extra combo box item is missing, otherwise it would've been added already.

            • Well, it's a lot more complicated than a 'combo box', you need a good accountant and the ability to be accountable to the donors.
