Re: Getting Involved with Perl 6 - 2009
in thread Getting Involved with Perl 6 - 2009
Thanks for bringing it up, I'll try to summarize the current state:
- The pugs repo is used as a general repository for Perl 6 related projects. Although we still call it "pugs repo", it hosts the specification, test suite, elf, mildew, STD.pm, some infrastructural code (IRC logging, evalbot, ...). We think about renaming the repository one day.
- The test suite won't move into the rakudo repository. It is meant to be implementation agnostic, and moving it into the repo of an implementation would be counter-productive (and it's used by other programs as well, namely STD.pm and elf). Maybe I'll move it out into a completely separate repository one day.
Currently none of these issues are pressing, so I won't hurry. Especially I want to sort out the rest of the old pugs test suite before doing any kind of move. Since the easy-to-verify tests have already been moved, this is tedious work, and going to take some time. I also consider using git instead of SVN, but I'll have to wrap TimToady's head around git first ;-)
Any move will be carefully coordinated with the heads of the others projects, of course.
