in reply to Inclusion of Raku on PerlMonks

Excellent discussion, everyone. I personally believe that Raku should have its own web-based community (if they want — or else live on Stack Exchange, or whatever else that language community deems best); and that unless and until that web-based community is up and running, we, PerlMonks, should open our doors to our brethren. I presume that it will not be more than a temporary arrangement.


So looking at the 'Community' page on, it seems that they actively manage live chats and mailing lists, and various individuals have blogs; and aside from that there's an acknowledged presence on Stack Overflow. So what I wonder is: Are the folks in the Raku community content with what they have? Or -- more concisely -- is there any concensus in the Raku community that they need/want something like PerlMonks but don't have it yet? I think the bottom line is: Unless the Raku user community needs something like PerlMonks and PerlMonks is the only extant solution to that need, we establish the position henceforth that Raku discussions are not to be hosted here, and we'll politely redirect them to the other resources they have. As much as we love the PerlMonks format, it might not be what the Raku folks want.

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

    Well that's probably the ironic boomerang of selling the name change by better acceptance beneath Perl haters...

    ... Unless someone starts a great new Rakumonks website...


    ... Ah already registered.

    Thank you for your reply, as well as thanks to haj and liz for similar arguments. That sounds like a reasonable way to handle it.
