I am continually amused and disappointed by P6 advocates trying to revise history when that history is so easily searched.

Indeed.

And I am continually saddened by your insistence on pouring salt into the Perl 6 inflicted wound that you seem to have. I think it's time to let the scar heal.

    P6 burned through multiple project managers, burned out multiple technical leads, threw away multiple dead ends, but the real problem is pepole who point this out.

    I guess it's a Please Clap strategy.

      You guys keep quarreling about the past while we need a strategy for the future.

        Maybe Perl5 will follow in the footsteps of COBOL. 20 years from now, high pay will go to the few programmers who can still repair/update Perl5 legacy code. :-)

        You're right! I'd like that strategy not to repeat the mistakes of the past.

        For example, I think we should collectively acknowledge that deliberate fragmentation, in the hope that we'll have eventual convergence, has rarely worked for us. Experimenting with multiple competing object systems on the CPAN and hoping eventually something will get into the core has left us with a core that's (apart from mro and parent) unchanged since 5.004 or so for objects with any sizable CPAN dependency chain pulling in multiple competing object systems.

      And I am continually disappointed that P6 advocacy just can't help making things personal.

      Last time I checked, we're all people of flesh and blood. People who make announcements. Whether they be in bad faith or not. If you think this is all not personal in some form or another, you have a pretty inhuman view of the Perl community.

      In this particular case, I thought I was giving good advice to somebody who clearly is in agony. Nothing more, nothing less. Think of that what you will. People who know me a little better than just from online interactions, know that's a thing that I do.
