in reply to Perl 6 Involvement

My take on this:

Some parts of Parrot are easy to understand and get involved in. Others are difficult, and will require reading through the archives to avoid repeating the same paths we've already covered. (In fact, that's another useful documentation contribution -- if you see something that keeps coming up over and over again, people appreciate summary documents that describe the various approaches we've considered and their advantages and disadvantages.) But it's a friendly list, so don't worry about people threatening to disembowel your relatives and pets if you say something that's been said already. You will need to subscribe to perl6-internals in order to participate effectively, and as with most development lists, patches usually speak louder than words (even for documentation).
