Ok, I'll jump. How *do* I get involved? I'm currently jumping around with various ideas in my head, mostly all for personal fulfillment, and working on something more important to the community *is* what I am looking for. My previous involvement in open source projects is minimal, I've attempted to start something on sourceforge before, but nothing really came of it -- mainly because a lot of cool things can't happen while flying solo.
Perl6 is very important to Perl, of course, mainly because it straightens out the OO model enough to where it can start to really gain widespread acceptance in places Perl can't normally go. It's the third-stage rocket booster to Perl greatness, essentially.
Let me know what I can do, and I'm there. I have some fairly sharp design and development skills (IMHO), experience across a wide set of languages -- yet I'm not exactly sure how the process works. Helping would be awesome though.

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
