  • Todd Rinaldo commented on Perl7 is a fork of values

    By your logic, anything run by a BDFL would be abandoned.

    The "B" in "BDFL" stands for benevolent. Neither Sawyer, nor you Todd, exhibit this quality.

    Thanks! My comment was not about Perl's governance so much as most other open source projects. Some have a complex governance but the majority are managed by a select few. Isn't this the common case?

    I think the current Perl 7 plan is very heavy for the resources available to the Perl community.

    Perl 7 will succeed if many people welcome it and everyone supports it.

    If, in reality, the move to Perl 7 doesn't work, I think it's an opportunity to reconsider adopting "use v7".

    I have a very similar thinking of Leon.
