Re^4: How much Perl6 have we got?
in thread How much Perl6 have we got?
And I just want to add that I think it's really important to continue to have a solid set of people sticking with Perl 5 for now. The people out front tend to be in it for the glory and the excitement, and that's wonderful, but the fact of the matter is that it takes all kinds of folks to make an army. Military campaigns are won or lost based mostly on how well the supply chains are guarded, and not so much on how many people are willing to charge up the hill and get cut to ribbons. Though we need some of those people too. And we also need to make allowances for the fact that the kind of people who are willing to be cut to pieces for the sake of their comrades may need to swagger around a bit before the big battle to work up their courage. :-)
Er, sorry, been reading too many WWII retrospectives lately, I guess...
