Is Perl 6 at least as much production ready as much as Perl 5 is?

For what use cases?

You see, Perl 6 isn't meant as a successor for Perl 5 (at least not anymore; that was the original intention for Perl 6, but we've diverted from that path long ago), so it's not clear to me that Perl 6 has to excell in exactly the same spots as Perl 5. So I don't think we need to have a complete superset in productivity to declare it production ready.

That question captures what people mean when they ask for production readiness of Perl 6.

Citation needed. Maybe it captures your idea, but people I talk to all have different ideas of production readiness.

I frankly admit that on most areas, existing Perl 6 compilers cannot compete with Perl 5 on most "production readiness" metrics. So, if that's the answer you want to hear, please have it and be happy.

But there are a lot of folks who don't need the same level of stability and speed, and who are willing to give up a bit of both in exchange for a much more expressive and consistent language. And for those folks we need a more detailed answer than "yes" or "no". It's for those folks that we blog about our progress, fix bugs, add features and make monthly releases -- not for the anonymous crowd waiting for a release labeled 1.0
