in thread Perl 5 -> 6 do's and don'ts?

Thats what I saying dude the most excellent people who toil long and hard need to have better funding or organisation to speed things up. Developing a programming language has loads of potential for making money, just look at the effort Sun and Microsoft put in. I don't think big business do it for community spirit.

If there was more support and more money people would contribute more time. Although it's kinda contradictory OSS has to be more business orientated in it's approach.

They can't rely on busy lazy people like me to help them out. Relying on goodwill will go so far.

[Discipulus]: who make the invitation? the program?!?
[choroba]: it's historical
[erix]: pull requests
[choroba]: originally, you sent a pull request to someone by email, i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo
[Discipulus]: if is the author of a patch, is more like a 'request to push' into rather than a pull request..
[choroba]: as it's considered unpolite to push to someone else's repo
[choroba]: and in fact, you don't push into the target repo, you push into your branch of your fork
[choroba]: the maintainer of the upstream repo than "merges" the pull request, i.e. they pull from your fork into the upstream
[Discipulus]: ' i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo' =~ I (subj) want to push
[Discipulus]: chorobayour words are reasonable
