Abigail was the person I was thinking of. "qualms" doesn't preclude "heavily in favor". I know brian's got reservations, as do I, but I haven't heard anything from brian regarding not supporting Perl6. I also remember talking with Adam about his qualms, but I thought most of them had been addressed. Granted, this was YAPC::NA::2006, so I could be out of date.

The point still remains, even if I may overstated it a bit. The Perl5 devs and CPAN authors, as a group, are heavily in favor of how Perl6 is progressing, both in terms of deliverables and and in terms of process. If you want, I would be delighted to take a poll on the matter.

As for apology, there is nothing to apologize for. We had a discussion. You feel strongly one way and I feel strongly another. We've had these several times over the past 6+ years we've known each other. If you feel there's something I need to apologize for, I would be honored to discuss it via email -

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
