Well by all means, that is a great thing

But if you are not going to break backwards compatibility, that more or less counts as a production release, because then you are announcing the future releases are going to be feature additions and bug fixes but not deprecations and no feature breakage are going to happen

In that case the original email in which Patrick mentions Perl 6's versioning system of specifying version numbers to denote a set of semantics that remain valid with backwards compatibility stands to apply.

Anything less than this isn't a stability support policy at all. Because then you are just saying you are going to fix bugs, which you are going to anyway.

So should we take this a indication for a first backward compatible(No going back after this) Perl 6 release, or more appropriately a production release? In such a case I'm game for a discussion, because that would make a lot of dreams of many people come true.
