Description Patrick Spek 2020-01-08 10:22:02 UTC
Perl 6 has recently changed its name to Raku. This means that virtual/perl6 should be renamed to virtual/raku.

Reproducible: Always

I guess that's mostly up to Patrick. I doubt anyone from @perl objects.
Comment 2 Enne Eziarc 2022-05-06 15:42:41 UTC
I'd propose to simply delete the virtual at this point.

It might've made sense back when dev-lang/niecza was still in tree, but that was eons ago, and there's been zero progress on adding anything that'd $depend on the language anyway.
