How much Perl6 have we got? Nobody knows...

in reply to How much Perl6 have we got?

Sadly enough, nobody could tell an estimate of the progress, neither in percentage nor in time. That doesn't look as a good thing to me :-(.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    Oh, that's easy. 80%.

    All nontrivial software projects are at one of:

    • 0%
    • don't-bother-me-right-now
    • 80%
    • obsolete

    I work for Reactrix Systems, and am willing to admit it.

      I think that describes a fair number of trivial software projects, too.

    I don't know about Perl6, but you can derive a percentage of progress for Pugs pretty easily, simply by looking at the first two numbers in Pugs versions. We are currently at 6.2.x (1st milestone), approaching 6.28.0 (2nd milestone), out of six milestones (6.283185.0), so I'd say we're between 1/6 and 2/6 there, or maybe around 30%.

    Considering that it took us 211 days to reach here, it's easy to derive that there are 492 more days to go. Obviously, with your help, we can reach there sooner still. :-)

      Of course, that ignores the truism that at any stage of development, the current estimate of remaining time should be doubled. If you double your estimate before announcing it, of course, it'll just need to be doubled again.

        Heh, indeed, that's why we have milestones and stepwise rollouts. :-)
