Getting Involved with Perl 6 - an Update
I read what I can find about Perl6 but get confused about all the different projects and how they relate to one another. Does KindaPerl6 use Rakudo? I hope that Perl6 won't be slower than Perl5 - one of the bad things about Ruby is the lack of speed.
Its also a bit worrying that there are so many projects - doesn't this dilute the efforts and slow down progress?
Then again, so little of the work is paid and open source tends to branch here and stall there. I'm grateful that people do find the time to push things forward.
