11:03 stmuk_ we could perhaps use this page https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/wiki/What%27s-going-into-Rakudo-%2A%3F to discuss the future of R*?
11:10 timotimo yikes, that's old :D
11:12 stmuk_ its still linked from one of the star READMEs which is why I noticed it
11:12 timotimo well, the one readme doesn't end up in a star release tarball
11:18 timotimo so that's likely not user-facing at least
11:18 timotimo reading the readme caused me to stumble upon the feature matrix that's also noticably out of date
11:19 timotimo i don't think rakudo devs look at that often at all
11:32 stmuk_ I doubt anyone has in the last 6 years
11:32 stmuk_ it's more "green" to recycle the electrons of an old wiki then create another wiki which is used for 2 weeks and then also abandoned :)
11:34 timotimo :D
11:34 timotimo it's not true, though
11:35 timotimo many people looked at the feature matrix in the past
11:36 stmuk_ I meant https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo.wiki.git
11:38 stmuk_ oh I think its commit access only for rakudo/rakudo (user agreement etc.) anyway
11:40 timotimo oh
11:40 stmuk_ zoffix was using a GH wiki I think
11:42 stmuk_ actually not a wiki but https://github.com/perl6/user-experience
11:59 timotimo hm, there doesn't seem to be an entry on the list about "find out about the exact status of implementation"
11:59 timotimo which is where the feature comparison matrix would come in

17:05 b2gills A swarm of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope, so how about renaming R* as "Perl 6 Kaleidoscope Edition"?

18:47 MadcapJake b2gills++ # I like that!
