I'm very glad to find that scw, a returning lambdacamel, has started Yet Another Pugs Hacker's Blog to chronicle his ongoing work on Pugs. It will soon join Planet Six, an aggregator on all Perl 6-related blogs -- if you have an Atom/RSS feed on Perl 6-related topics in your journal, or would like to start writing about Perl 6, please leave a comment here and we'll add it to the aggregator.
His current subproject is on a multilevel Parser-bootstrap(Perl 6, parsed with (perl6/p6rules parsed, with (parsec/p6rules, parsed with (minip6, parsed with (perl5/p6rules, parsed with (optable)))))), which will enable maximum sharing of grammar between PIR/Perl5/Haskell implementations.
In other news, the Perl 6 weekly summary, a constant presence on Planet Six, has been absent recently. Today Matt Fowles expressed his wish to pass on the summarizer hat:
Paradoxically, I have found myself wishing that there were summaries as there seems to have been a lot of movement lately and I have not had much time to read it all.
In the hopes of inspiring someone to take my place, I would like to encourage any interested party to just start summarizing and thus become the official perl 6 summarizer.
Thanks, Matt, for all your excellent summaries; I certainly enjoyed them a lot. :-)
So, if you are feeling the spirit of JFDI (pronounced Jifty), then start to backlog and post your first summary to [email protected]!
