in thread Perl 6 and performance

Even if you find people who want to fix that, it takes forever to fix that when you have to support great wads of buggy, awful C code written as proofs of concept and somehow covered under a poorly conceived deprecation policy, which happens to be self-reinforcing behavior, because if you can't fix things fast enough to support downstream users, they'll write even more buggy and awful C code to poke in the internals, and you have to support that too.

Hasn't the deprecation policy problem been addressed? Namely, that fixes that need to be in can get in faster now?

    I'll believe that when I see it. I don't know of any upcoming Parrot changes that'll affect Rakudo in any dramatic way, but I don't follow either project in detail.

[Corion]: Last day at $work before 3 weeks of vacation (well, not that I'd be really travelling, but no-work-time ;) )
[robby_dobby]: marto: yeah, I'd eventually visit Glasgow some day - just to visit the home town of GHC :-)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Oh, that's awesome! Your timing is perfect enough to see all hell break loose when you get back at work :P
[marto]: well, let me know in advance, I'll buy you a pint :)
[Corion]: robby_dobby: No, I'm returning in the second workweek of January. The main hectic parts are in the first days after the start of the new year
[robby_dobby]: marto: and, I'm not sure I'd be around here long enough for YAPC::EU
[marto]: Corion nice, what are you plans for Christmas?
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Nice, you just won't be around to deal with the mess - enjoy your vacation :-)
[robby_dobby]: marto: Sure, will do. Thanks!
[Corion]: marto: No great plans - I'll meet with my sister, my brother and my mother, but that's all :)
