I think Rakudo is doing pretty good progress off late, I generally browse through the IRC logs when I get time. And what looks to be clear is that some time between 2011 and 2012 you must see a production ready release.
The problem with Perl 6 is that the spec is released before hand setting very high expectations.A spec complete production ready release is a very overwhelming task to be achieved in a short period of time. You must also distinguish between such a release and the completely standard library being available. I think the spec for that is not yet nailed. So it will take time and the only way is to either help them or wait in patience. It will happen some day.
Meanwhile books are being written and a early adopters release called Rakudo * is planned in some weeks from now. All this is definitely good progress.
