It's not wrong, but very misleading.

The announcement of the parrot road map has nothing to do with the release date of Perl 6 (which by itself isn't well defined - do you mean the language specification? or the first implementation?).

"production parrot" does not imply "production rakudo".

If you link to one thing and ask a completely different question at the same time, one could suspect that you think the two are related, which is why I answered to clean up any possible confusion.

Most people couldn't care less about obscure project names vs. what language they implement.

If you count all people in the world, yes. If you count Perl programmers, no.

Most Perl programmers are interested in parrot because it started off as a platform for implementing Perl 6, not because it's in general a very cool project. So for them it does matter to know that a production parrot doesn't imply production Perl 6.

As for the "obscure project names" - most people are more confused if different things have the same name. Now different things (language, compiler, vm, test suite) have different names, which I find not confusing at all. I don't care if you call them "obscure", I can remember them and type them without my fingers, so I'm fine with them.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
