  • So much mail, so much time and energy, so much exposure, too little thanks. I hope Perl 5 is able to find as good a replacement as Perl 6 found in Piers, for you've done a tremendous job.

  • They'll be missed, I enjoyed them.

    I hereby nominate [chaoticset] for the position
    of Chief List Compactor ;-)

    I will greatly miss them too. I had to stop following P5P about a year ago (because Perl 6 now takes up about 200% of my mailing-list tracking capacity ;-) and -- apart for annoying Jarkko and Hugo directly -- your summaries were my only way of keeping in touch with Perl 5 issues. They were brilliantly done and in themselves were a major contribution to Perl development. So thank-you for all your work, Rafael. It was greatly appreciated.

      *I* was depending on Rafael's excellent summaries for keeping up with p5p (as I no more subscribe to it directly).
  • It was indeed greatly appreciated; thanks.
  • Thanks a lot (Score:2, Interesting)

    I tried once or twice to subscribe to P5P, but I could not keep up with the volume and the level of knowledge needed to understand the whole thing.

    Thanks for for helping me follow at least the most important stuff going on there.

  • The summaries allow people like me to pull themselves into the community. I really appreciated it!
