Perl 6 and the CPAN?
Message ID:
Hi all,

I've started writing Config::INI, an INI reader/writer in Perl 6.  It's on github at

This has raised several interesting issues, but the  most important is that I didn't check the CPAN, but it turns out Ricardo Signes has a Perl 5 version:  Can we have identically named P5 and P6 modules on the CPAN?  We should be able to, but I don't that will actually fly.

I know there was a fair chunk of discussion regarding Perl 6 on the CPAN, but have we gotten anywhere?  More and more Perl 6 code is being written and sooner or later, people would like someplace to put it other than github or :)
