Way to strawman, Moritz.

perl-6 has no real users (except that sorry sad sack writing IRC bots and making millions of dollars in production!!) because no-one trusts you all to deliver something "useful and usable". That was Rakudo Star and that was four years ago and you couldn't even be arsed to write documentation or make installable packages or keep the (few) modules passing their tests or even compiling from month to month.

No, Rakudo Star was followed by a huge rewrite that took months. At the end of the process you all announced your intention to abandon the single piece of the project that demonstrated any project management acumen at all, and now you're wondering why all of its contributors vanished.

Somehow you've convinced yourself that the only user feedback you've ever received is "it's too slow".

But I guess that's what you get when you don't have any users besides the spec tests.

After 14 years, you don't even have a static website generator, let alone a replacement for WordPress.

That's why people don't take you seriously. Because after all these years, you still don't have anything anyone would feed to a dog.

So go on, keep doing what you think is best. Because it's clearly worked out well so far. perl-6 is going to have as many users as Perl sometime soon, not because perl-6 is getting more users but because it's poisoned Perl.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
