Do you have any plans of restarting the Pugs development?

    Well, The 6.2.x GitHub repository is kept alive by maintaining compatibility with latest Perl 5 and GHC releases.

    As of Pugs 6.28.x, as said in my previous reply, I think while it's attractive as a research project, I'd like to focus on more immediate developments in runtime-agnostic systems (such as Perlito), or on CPAN-interoperable layers (such as MooseX::Declare).

    All this can change if Hackage's userbase someday exceeds that of CPAN's, but I don't think it'll happen in the near future, if at all. :-)

      Thanks, Your work on Pugs provided a lot of feedback and much needed test suite for Rakudo development. And your efforts directed towards Moose et al are very much needed to keep the Perl community going forward. All in all, thanks for all the contributions you've made. All of them just add a lot of awesomeness to Perl.

        Pugs provided a test suite for more than Rakudo. Every Perl 6 implementation now and any in the future benefit from those tests. Pugs and Audrey deserve much credit and appreciation for that.
