I also have no time and yet I find myself porting small pieces of p5 code to p6 just to see how to do it. Since I am not yet taking advantage of the new features, it really is quite straight forward and doesn't take a significant amount of time.
- Reference Material
Have you seen Perl6::Bible? It should help a bit as a reference guide when things are unclear. I know the hassle of joining p6.l to try and get a single question answered so if it isn't in the "book" yet, you might consider joining #perl6 on IRC. Just have a window open lurking and if you have a question, ask and it will be answered or someone will go find the answer for you.
- P6 Rules/OO
Well, as much of PGE (rules) that exists to date from pmichaud is available to Pugs and p5 regexen via PCRE are also available. While full OO support isn't in yet, a great deal is. And when you find something missing that you want - ask for it (really). Having a real need for something is usually motivation enough for the people with time to implement it.
See Get Involved With Pugs for more information. Oh, by the way - Pugs can use CPAN modules now!!
