How much does one have to donate to have a right to muse about Perl 6 development and reach negative conclusions?
Anyone willing to pontificate about any perceived deficiency of the output of an entirely community-driven project where everyone doing the work is a volunteer severely misunderstands the nature of community-driven development.
Unlike projects where people wave money and resources and paid employees have to do what the people with the money say, volunteers only work because they want to. Everyone working on Parrot and Perl 6 right now is just a normal average person just like you. The only difference is that they actually did something instead of sitting around and complaining that nothing gets done.
I don't care if you don't have the time or the talent or the inclination to contribute. You can still use the code anyway. You can believe what you want about the code. Just don't expect anyone to care about the ingratitude of people who complain and never contribute about projects run entirely by volunteers who get absolutely nothing from you and ask absolutely nothing from you.
How do you think the work gets done though?
