Perl 6 is a programming language, member of the Perl family. Like Perl 5, her
world-famous big sister, Perl 6 intends to carry forward the high ideals of
the Perl community and is currently being developed by a team of dedicated and
enthusiastic volunteers.
perl6 package is a meta package that aims to depend on a Perl6
compiler and Perl6 core modules. Currently this package depends only
on a compiler (rakudo). Dependency on the perl6 modules shipped by rakudo-star
will be added later once they are available on Debian.
Perl6 version number represents the version of the language specification.
The version of the compiler is another matter.
