What I want is to hear from Vroom (or a suitable member of EveryDevel) on what the state of things is. Unless I'm forgetting someone, not a single member of EveryDevel has commented on the viability of anything. We've had a few posts along these lines in the past, fruitless as far as I can tell. So tell us what's going on!
Are they secretly being funded by a millionaire Perl Saint? Have a master plan they're waiting to spring on the world? PM is just a hobby and the bandwidth/resources are being stolen from Vroom's university?
I'm just frustrated because nothing we say here really feels satisfying unless we get some feedback from the big guys. If such conversation is being mentioned in the CB, it doesn't seem fair to those users who are never around to see it, and it would be better commented on in a more accesable forum. Not that PerlMonks owes me anything of course. It's just the most frustrating thing in the world is lack of communication.
