in thread Perl 5 -> 6 do's and don'ts?
Thats what I saying dude the most excellent people who toil long and hard need to have better funding or organisation to speed things up. Developing a programming language has loads of potential for making money, just look at the effort Sun and Microsoft put in. I don't think big business do it for community spirit.
If there was more support and more money people would contribute more time. Although it's kinda contradictory OSS has to be more business orientated in it's approach.
They can't rely on busy lazy people like me to help them out. Relying on goodwill will go so far.
