> When you look at the snapshot of the whole history. You see failures, slowdowns, rewrites, porting to multiple backends and yet no production release yet. A lot of blog posts, essays but no end to this thing.

That's what you see and emphasize. But please don't suggest that's all there is to see or emphasize. I see and emphasize successes (zavolaj, emmentaler, bailador, rosettacode, etc.), development speedups (that's why I wrote the original meditation this comment is part of), code that's good enough that it doesn't need rewriting (eg the excellent p6model), continued hope that the Parrot team will deliver (but a strategy, and now codebase, that no longer relies on that), and a lot of high quality releases (or whatever you want to call them). A lot of blog posts, essays, and clear evidence P6 will be productized in the next year or two.

I get that most don't care. I'm focusing on speaking to those that do.
