( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The Perl 6 effort is very well organized at this point and doing regular releases etc. I don't think they have a problem with too much feedback, but too little. Though I may be projecting a bit here. Most of us love feedback and help getting good tests into a project.

I see Perl 6 as an extremely interesting, potential killer-app-language. Just having Moose makes Perl, to me, better than Ruby and Python. The Class::MOP-ish piece of Perl 6 is just a small slice of what's coming. As a language it could hit the sweet spot between a ton of previous design concerns, failings, successes in many languages. It could be the only high level language anyone would want to use five years from now.

It could also flop for any or all of the reasons detractors and critics cite. I'm impressed with it and recent dev efforts, however, and I see its realized success increasing. It's at the tipping point for me where I'd like to start rewriting some selected modules of my own in it. No tuits, as usual, but I'm certainly getting more interested in trying/participating.

Also, viva Perl 5! I love Perl 5 and am also impressed and happy with some of the new philosophical changes in its care and feeding.

Isn't it awesome to be able to be here? To have a stable, lovely, actively developed language that's so great in addition to an experimental, advanced outgrowth of it?
