And the fact of the matter is that the pace of spec changes is slowing down. These days most of the substantive spec changes are a direct result of observing how various implementations are attempting to nail down the loose flounders so they don't flop around the boat quite so much.

I feel these kinds of information are what's a bit missing. It's understandable that the Perl 6 community itself is more thrilled by newly implemented features than things that didn't change for a while, but I think that a stable language spec is the basis for a growing (maybe even inter-implementation) ecosystem. And that's going to be a green light for a lot more people. After all, it's easier for people to contribute to CPAN than p5p.
