in thread Perl6 Timeline By Apocalypse
It's the third-stage rocket booster to Perl greatness, essentially.
Well, just don't tell anyone the third stage is a nuclear fission rocket, eh?
(We're also working a fusion drive for Perl 7, but that's always going to be 20 years away...)
As for helping out, most folks just lurk on perl6-language and perl6-internals for a while until they get up to speed. There are various documents on dev.perl.org, but you have to read them as works in progress, especially the mailing list archives.
