in thread Perl 6 ... dead?

The design of Perl 6 was started with RFC's. I cannot imagine how this can be considered secret.

    Ok, and after that process was over, how has Perl6 been designed?

      In large part, Perl 6 has been designed not by a committee. (By special request of the committee...)

        Yeah, and you've done a really good job of it. I'm not saying that language-design by non-committe is a bad idea.

        However, there's still *years* worth of work in documentation, testing, and library writing still to do before Perl6 can really be production ready. The problem is that as it stands now, none of that work can be started because everyone that is non-cabal is in the dark about the details. Can't the rest of us do *something* in the meantime?
