    As long as it takes.
      So there you go again, we are back to square one. Really it looks like you guys are out to invent some new software development methodology which no one has heard, seen or used before. The only thing is if your experiment fails it may mark the death of Perl.

        Now you're just being silly. The usual software development methodologies with time based schedules simply don't work for open-source, volunteer based, non-paid work. Period. Also most of them produce crap software.

        The only thing is if your experiment fails it may mark the death of Perl.

        Why oh why do you keep repeating such bullshit? Perl 5 is still being developed, even faster than in the previous few years (at least so it seems to me), CPAN upload rates are at an all-time high - and you think that all would collaps if Larry declared Perl 6 a failure? Where is your common sense? Wake up, please.

        If you really care about Perl, stop spreading FUD, and instead help with actual development.

        Perl 6 - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.
