Perl 5's development issues have nothing to do with the code 
repository--given how many branches are active, perforce seems to be a win. 
The problems perl 5 has are almost entirely due to a code base that has 
reached past the end of its useful life. Perl 6 development is open to 
anyone with perl source, a text editor, a compiler and a copy of diff. (And 
for good code I'll generate the fscking diffs myself if I can get a copy of 
the changed source) *Nobody* needs *any* repository tools to play this 
game. Period.
