in thread Perl 6 release dates - two years later

...because Perl 6 should have been released...
Let me put on my cranky implementor hat here. The only people who can legitimately say that perl 6 should be doing anything, or be released at any time, are the ones who've actively done work on it. (So I can say should. And will)

If you've not done anything or, worse, been actively involved on perl6-language (a festering swamp that holds, no joke, a high place in the list of things that have delayed perl 6 (second only to the various lord of the rings DVDs)), you're just watching. People watching don't get shoulds. "Would be nice", "looks like opportunity X", "pity I've gotta move on to something else", sure. But not should. Should is for the people doing things, not the people watching.
