in thread Perl 6 to be renamed?

There is no "Perl6". Read the news.

Did I miss something? The latest I read was that they were considering adding an "alias" to the branding (essentially)... but not abandoning the "Perl 6" name. So the outward marketing can be more sane, while the unpleasantness within the community can continue raging.

Now, if you're referring to the fact that @lwall has declaimed very clearly that the name is "Perl 6, with a space" and not "Perl6", then yes... but that's not news.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    No, this time around what is being discussed is a full rename.

      Thanks. Interesting discussion going on right at this moment!

      I can't comment in that discussion, but if I could, I'd offer the observation that "ofun" has this possible drawback in terms of marketability: It invites haters to say that the language is zero fun!

        Zero fun should only be released when there are Zarro Boogs :p
