Perl6 Community Development Server

by Limbic~Region (Chancellor)
on May 27, 2005 at 12:37 UTC ( #461041=perlnews: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

All,
It has been mentioned a couple of times, that Juerd has worked to set up a community Perl6 development server. Accounts are available via email request only to individuals who are serious about progressing perl6 development. This should dramatically alleviate the hassle for those on a platform not currently conducive to Pugs.

Cheers - L~R

    What do you consider "serious about progressing perl6 development"?

    • Does this involve the building of Pugs (ie, with Haskell)?
    • Or people who are trying to build Perl6 programs, and hopefully they'll find bugs and write tests?
    • Or people who are just trying to learn Perl6?
    • Or is it just at the discretion of you and Juerd?
    • Or something else?
    I'm just wondering what that phrase means.

      mrborisguy,
      My opinion is that the first 3 all qualify. Given the limited capacity of the server, Juerd is trying to ensure the resources are available to the people who need them and abide by what he agreed on with his sponsors.

      I have no say in the matter and am merely spreading advocacy. The spirit of the condition is clear - don't ask for an account if you are going to use it for things not related to Perl6.

      Cheers - L~R

      Does this involve the building of Pugs (ie, with Haskell)?

      Depends on your definition of "building". If you're only going to compile it, your account will add nothing to the development process, because how Pugs behaves on this machine is already known. If you're going to be contributing, then obviously you're helping Perl 6 develop, and if you'd like access to this machine because you think Linux is handier than your own operating system, feel free to ask for it.

      Or people who are trying to build Perl6 programs, and hopefully they'll find bugs and write tests?

      Yes. Actual users of Perl 6 can help find corner cases. Of course, they are expected to report bugs they find in the form of tests.

      Or people who are just trying to learn Perl6?

      That's the same as the previous, as far as I'm concerned. Perl isn't a language you can easily learn without actually doing.

      Or is it just at the discretion of you and Juerd?

      Ultimately, only mine.

      Or something else?

      Yes, that too. For example, if you want to join discussions on IRC in #parrot (irc.perl.org) or #perl6 (irc.freenode.net), but you want a persistent connection and have no box that's always online.

      In general, I don't ask people how they will be using their accounts. But I do monitor the situation, and will terminate accounts of abusers. I will in the future ask how people *have been using* their accounts.
