spider-mario: please also add "group=('perl6')"

I can’t seem to reproduce the issue. Were you trying to update the package to that RC?

trizen: thanks for the suggestion, I will probably apply it for the next version.

I get the following error when I try to build:

Unrecognized revision specifier '2016.01-RC1'

I guess upstream updated a version number somewhere?

Suggestion: add "perl6" as part of the provided packages? (many Perl 6 modules require "perl6")

Nevermind, solved it with

Actually, I am not sure how to go about this myself. :p I have filed a ticket upstream:

Edit: I think it has been fixed in the git repository (by commit fb00ed), I am going to try and backport the fix.

Edit 2: success! will upload in a bit.

FWIW, I still maintain my binary repository (only for x86_64, though):

I've just tried to update to 2015-12 by editing pkgver, but I run into issues during "make install". Please advise!

I am aware of that and was planning to do that for the next release. Thank you.

(However, I have just realized that I forgot to upload the PKGBUILDs for 2015.02… my bad.)

For now, although the package `rakudo` is still the Parrot version, /usr/bin/perl6 is the MoarVM Rakudo when installing both.

@spider-mario: Larry Wall in an interview at FOSDEM stated that Perl6 would launch officially with MoarVM:

The Rakudo team announced they would drop Parrot support:

This would suggest MoarVM should be the default in nqp and rakudo pkgs, and parrot support extracted away into nqp-parrot and rakudo-parrot as opposed to moarvm support being extracted into nqp-moarvm and rakudo-moarvm. MoarVM should be the default. Probably JVM support should be included as well. I have listed PKGBUILDs that follow this approach here:
