in thread Dan Sugalski's Parrot Post Mortem

I had a quick look at the "set of milestones" referenced by Ovid. It has the appearence of a dead document: the status of Milestone 1 ends with: "Patrick's expecting a vastly updated engine incorporating subrules and these new features within March 2005." Given today's date is October 2005, this suggests that the status hasn't been updated for at least 6 months.

Later, we see threads: "Design worked out, but still in Dan's head". Maybe this is still true but, if so, it needs to be extracted.

    To be frank, it will not be a surprise if the project is actually cold dead now. To pick up something years later, most likely throw some old idea around, in a industry famous for its changing, that itself is a bad sign instead of a good one. Not to say, as you have pointed out, there is sign that they didn't really pick up.

    The fate of Perl 6 and Parrot could be quite miserable, and is not the first tme you see in this industry.
