in reply to The Perl Foundation Wants to Hear From You

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing some news about this Perl 6 I've been hearing so much about. I haven't seen an update to the "This week in Perl 6" here since October (though feel free to tell me if I'm not looking hard enough or if I'm looking in the wrong place). Also, I wouldn't mind such summaries being more high level. I don't follow the goings on of the Perl 6 community, so many of the comments in those posts are lost on me. A short list of "here's what we've worked on, we've got this much to go" would be appreciated by at least by this monk. :)

    Given that Perl6 will ultimately be implemented on top of Parrot, you might find this this TPF blog post of interest. That summarizes what we're doing with Parrot and where we're going from here. It also explains a bit about the Parrot development process. Admittedly, it's not the same thing as Perl 6 development, but it's a start. Post your comment to the blog so others there can see it.

    Cheers,

    Perl.com pulls in "This week in Perl 6" from Atom feeds provided by the summarizers. Unfortunately, our feed parser needs a bit of maintenance and we're down at least one programmer and a project manager, so fixing it keeps giving way to higher priorities.

      I understand. Is there any reason why O'Reilly can't just point to the site where the summaries are held in the interim? Because I was relying on perl.com for those updates, I thought that development had stalled. Maybe I'm ignorant and in the minority here, but having news and then not implies that there's no news to be had for me.

        I just don't want to get in the habit of pointing hither and yon as things change. Consistency is important, though I do admit that I didn't think it would take this long to fix our feed reader.

    If you subscribe to the perl6-announce at perl dot org list, you'll get the summaries (plus the occasional Pugs or Parrot release announcement).
