At xerox++'s suggestion, this year I factored Haskell-related tasks from Pugs and listed them as part of haskell.org project ideas for Google's Summer of Code, and listed myself as a mentor on both Haskell.org and the Perl Foundation. The perl.org project ideas list already has some Pugs-related items -- a port of DBI::PurePerl to Pugs, for example -- and I look forward to add more ideas to both lists in the days to come.
Also, thanks to xerox's effort, Pugs is now running on MacIntel, using Wolfgang Thaller's preliminary GHC 6.5 build. This of course made me wonder if I should give in and get a Pro 17" now, or wait for a probably more stable (and certainly less expensive) NonPro 15"... I guess I'll sleep on it. :-)
