in reply to YAP6: A p5 approach to p6

Parrot is today very powerfull <sic> and even in the first versions, it can already be used to a lot of stuff. But it still have a long way for hosting a full Perl 6.

I may be wrong here, but isn't the issue with hosting a "full Perl 6" the fact that Perl 6 isn't finished? From my understanding, both Parrot and Pugs are implementation of what currently exists of the language, and are used for testing, not as what "perl6" will be. So the Perl 6 development isn't centred around those two projects, and a third one won't help Perl 6 to be released any sooner.

Software speaks in tongues of man; I debug, therefore I code.

    There are two different things, Perl 6 the language and Perl 6 the runtime (will we call it Perl 6 and perl 6? maybe not)... The Language is already a comprehensive set of features and grammar specs (even if not stable), and no runtime (Pugs, Parrot or KP6) can run the full of the specs.
