That's misleading. ... The people who forked NQP were the Rakudo developers who wrote the previous NQPs.
The NQP response was "We're going to do this anyway. Don't worry, we have no plans to replace Parrot. VM portability is important to us anyway."
That seems logical enough.
Perl 5 has users ...
Heh. I was simply asking if the Perl 5 test suite passed every test for every platform. I don't know how the p5 QA team approach use of the words and concepts of "passes", skips, todos, etc. and was trying to align my vocabulary with Jenda's.
the tens of thousands of spectests Rakudo doesn't pass now—so I think you're playing semantic games by comparing edge cases in Perl 5 to missing features in P6.
What tens of thousands of spectests?
Fwiw, I wasn't trying to compare anything with edge cases in Perl 5. I was just trying to nail down vocabulary so I'd be comparing apples with apples in my exchange with Jenda.
