In answer to your question #2, I have to say that pugs has already contributed lots to Perl6. By implementing much of the things spec'd out in the various Apocalypses, Exegeses, and Synopses autrijus is "running ahead" of the Perl6 implementation effort and weeding out many edge cases and design faux pas. In this regard alone, pugs will make the Perl6 compiler implementation much, much easier. Also, it may be that if enough of Perl6 is implemented by pugs that it could be the bootstrap by which we get a full Perl6 compiler.

    I totally agree with your assessment. However, my question was more specifically was autrijus actually planning on sitting down with the current or future parrot/perl6 developers as well as Larry and Damian and really transfering all that accumulated knowledge.

    To be honest, from all the CPAN work I have seen of autrijus, and the commitment he seems to have to perl overall, if I had to guess, I would assume he absolutely would do this. So the question really isn't for me, but instead for those who are not already very familiar with Autrijus's work.

      If you hang out on freenode #perl6 or read perl6-language, you'll see that there's lots of knowledge transfer happening right this minute :-)

        I don't, but that is really good to know.
