On a related note, if anyone does want to build a P6 Wiki, you might consider building it on top of WWW::Kontent (http://search.cpan.org/dist/WWW-Kontent/), a Perl6 CMS (Content Management System) that BrentDax wrote.

Web Programming with Perl -- http://users.easystreet.com/ovid/cgi_course/ ----- Original Message ---- From: Paul Fenwick <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: email@example.com Sent: Saturday, May 27, 2006 4:46:23 AM Subject: Introductions; P6 wiki G'day Everyone, I'm very glad to have finally subscribed to the P6 users list after a couple of weeks of travel and intermittent network access, and so I apologise that this message may not be properly threaded. This is both a note of introduction and a few words on the recent discussion about the P6 wiki ideas. For those of you whom I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting, I run Perl Training Australia ( http://perltraining.com.au/ ), am the secretary of Melbourne Perl Mongers, and speak whenever I get the chance at many of the Australian conferences and user-groups. I'm regularly asked about Perl 6, and I often show it off to enthusiastic students during lunch breaks. I'm also one of the admins of PerlNet ( http://perl.net.au/ ), which brings us nicely to the talk of P6 wikis. I love the idea of the P6 wiki being written in P6, I think it's a fantastic idea. However I'm also aware that there are no P6 wiki implementations yet, and it will probably take some time to get one running. So can we have our cake and eat it too? I believe the answer is yes. I can't see any problems with using an existing wiki, be it Feather, or PerlNet, or any other wiki, with the intention to migrate the content to a P6-in-P6 wiki when such becomes available. The main thing to be careful of is ensuring that people are aware of the migration plans, and that there are no license problems. The last thing we want are social or legal barriers to migrating content. I do agree with Jured's sentiments that requiring the P6 wiki to support the kitchen sink will make migration more difficult, and so that simplicity in mark-up for any interim wiki is a good thing. In the meantime, if anyone does want to use perl.net.au for any P6 (or Perl in general), you should feel very encouraged to do so, even if it's with the intention of migrating that content in the future.
