in thread Perl 6 to be renamed?

Based on what logic?

Laziness (mainly), impatience, and hubris — along with a good dose of πιστις, ελπις, and αγαπη.

Anyway, I expect that if/when ζ catches on, there will spring up a new community site devoted to it and so the question here will become moot.

Will all projects/languages inspired by Perl be equally welcome

I don't know about "inspired by", because, after all, that would include PHP and Ruby. :-P

I think if a project is based on Perl (say, a new dialect someone is working on, like Perl11) then questions about it would be allowed here.

It's worth noting that there is a significant grey area between allowed and welcome. A post on Perl11 would be allowed, but the poster might find it not very warmly received. That's ok. We have ways of handling content in the grey area. Posts can have their titles prefixed with "(OT)", or posts can be moved to the "offtopic ghetto", like what was done with this post. I think the admins would like to leave these decisions to the moderators. What we don't want is for any action on a "Perl 6" post other than reap to incite some members to launch yet another crusade against P6 here. If you don't like it, scroll past.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    That was exactly the point. Why should Rakudo be treated differently than PHP or Ruby? It's just another language inspired by Perl.


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      I dare say PHP in its very earliest days would have been tolerated here, as long as the volume was low, until it got its own community site(s).

        Come on, jdporter!

        I dare say ... would have been ... as long as ... until ...

        How many hypotheticals and subjunctives can you fit in one sentence?!

        If you want to justify your earlier deific pronouncement that Raku discussions will be welcome at Perlmonks by comparing it to other foreign languages inspired by Perl, citing PHP as an example, could you at least share one post where PHP was considered on-topic?
