Would there be 14 Perl conferences this year without the shot in the arm Perl 6 provided? Would there be a Perl 5.8.4?

I don't know, but I think there's a correlation.

    I'm fully convinced that if there wasn't a perl6 effort, we'd now been seeing maintainance releases for 5.10 with a 5.12 looming on the horizon.

    As for whether there would be 14 conferences without perl6, I don't know. Is there any Perl conference this year which is mainly about perl6? The last conference I attended had three perl5 and perl1 pumpkin, but no perl6 pumpkins. It had a large talk about perl5 development, but not about perl6.

    I've two more conferences to go to this year, I'll see what's happening there.
