in thread Basic Perl5 to basic Perl6?

Well, it is true that I might be wrong, because predicting the future is not my best ability, but what made me think that was this thread on use.Perl.

I don't recall all the thread by heart (hey, 63 comments over a month old), but I seem to remember people talking about Perl6 not being ready until the end of 2006...

Again, I might be wrong, sure, but that's the idea I kept from that thread :-\

    I know the thread. I also know that many of the people wanted to know when and also wanted to know exactly what the money was going to be used for.

    People listened and acted accordingly.

    The result of that was better documenting deliverables and timelines. To be honest, there is energy and synergy in the community right now that wasn't there just two months ago. I bet that if it reaches critical mass - you will see something useable (not finished) before the end of the calendar year. Of course, I will win this bet since Pugs is useable today even if it isn't finished.

    Cheers - L~R
