TheDamian acknowledges a failure of marketing
Damian said "failure of marketing" to refer to the fact that on the one hand "people have given up on Perl 6 ever appearing" but on the other there's the reality that "it has appeared" and "3 years ago we started releasing alphas" and "we're very close to something that you could call Perl 6.0.0 if you wanted to" and "it's an awesome language".
Of course, some folk will argue that it hasn't been released, or that we shouldn't do marketing until it hits production status, or that it's not really an improvement on Perl 5, or Ruby, and on and on...
