What are the list of things that prevent Rakudo-on-whatever being labelled as a full fledged production release?

There'll likely be as many very different answers to that as answerers.

For one definition of "full fledged production release" that I think is arguably reasonable, the main missing absolute essentials are completed documentation and user support. I think aiming at producing such a release in the next few months would be a big waste of everyone's time.

Maybe you mean "like P5". That might never happen; you only get a QA level like P5's if you get an adoption level like P5's.

Extrapolating on the plans and progress of the last 2 years, and assuming no bus accidents, I can see the P6 team aiming at having a solid 6.0.0 beta that adds p5interop, compact arrays, concurrency, async IO, unicode, macros, module versioning, better libs, better module installer, much better performance, complete documentation, and user support by YAPC::NA 2014.

(In case anyone misinterprets this as promising big things or somesuch, this is not a promise but rather a list of the main things I think will be added between now and shipping a "full fledged production release".)
