in thread Perl 6: Managing breakages across Rakudo Star versions
I will give you a frank feedback on what I think should be the way forward for managing things in Rakudo
1. No more major rewrites, as they break a lot of code and a lot of catching up is required in the months that follow.
2. Implementation for at least one backend complete, which is backwards compatible, has basic libraries and usable documentation.
3. Path towards making Perl 5 and CPAN compatible defined, and planned to achieve over a period of time.
