As I write the book I’m documenting the areas where Perl 6 has problems (or maybe I merely think it has problems). I’m not stopping to fix these because I have the book to write. By the time the book is published, I’ll merely note that the broken things are open issues.
This isn’t unusual for the first tutorial book of a language. Even Perl (4) had these issues with the first Camel and Llama books. People have done a tremendous amount of work to get the framework and structure in place, but now the finish carpenters are showing up.
RT is for Rakudo things. I’ve created one overall ticket for the stuff I want to work for Learning Perl 6. That links to all of the other tickets I care about.
