    > Coro has been using internal interfaces which were subject to change and indeed changed. Even though some people advertised that those internal interfaces in perl core must change back in order for Coro to work, it is not true.

    Yuki, the above part of Sawyer's comment is so (deliberately?) misleading, that in practice constitutes a lie. The fallout of the change in question is neither limited to Coro[1], nor is the original motivation[2] considered worth the trouble by a large contingent of perl-folk[3]…

    thanks for your reply.

    I understand whether if Coro will work well in Perl 5.26.

    I had questions about only Coro. Sawyer X reply about it politely. Please don't blame him.

    Dear Sawyer,

    Sorry. I should probably rephrase the whole post. Or probably now it is a bit too late.

    For me things weren't that bad. I know you, Ricardo Signes and Paul Johnson enough, to know of your busy lives. And that is why I used "it seems", because I know it is not true.

    But as CPAN PR Challenge tries to persuade new Perl users to contribute, for those, not getting any answers might be frustrating.

    Thank you!

    And that is why I used "it seems", because I know it is not true.

    Culture gap I guess. “It seems” usually means “from what I can tell”, i.e. a position you are not necessarily sure about but which you conclude based on an observation. If you actually disagree with the impression – if you really mean something like “it gives the false impression” – then you need to explicitly say that. Otherwise most readers will misinterpret you. (I did, too.)

    I see what you mean, thanks Aristotle. Sometimes not easy to know how other will read, mainly when not writing in your own language.
