in reply to Perl 6 release date

Answer in YYYY-DD-MM format, to avoid confusion (2020-06-12 is June 12, 2020)

This already has caused a lot of confusion. :-) I'm assuming YYYY-MM-DD. My bets are heavily influenced by my birth day (1974-04-27).

I'm betting on 2004-04-27 (that's april 27th) for the first Perl 6 release, as I don't see Larry finishing the rest of his apocalipses before at least a year from now, and I don't want to wait any longer :-)

Also, I'm betting 2003-04-27 for the first full Parrot release (that is, the first full release of the VM + assembler), if such a thing will happen at all (?)

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
