Here are links to 7 RT tickets which I opened today reflecting the  
discussion at last night's TPM meeting.  The first ticket is an  
overall item.  The second and third are based on Indy's reports.  The  
fourth and fifth are based on Andy/Tom/Abram's work.  The sixth and  
seventh are based on Seneca's work.

As best I could, I tried to edit the reports you sent me to eliminate  
references to your directory paths.  And since I didn't specifically  
request permission to use your names in these postings, I simply  
referred to "the participant."  Hopefully, you'll follow these RTs  
and shed that anonymity.

I encourage you to take a look at these items via either the web  
interface to our bug-tracking system (links above), the news, mail or  
web interfaces to the Perl 6 Internals/Parrot Porters list (web:   
http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.perl6.internals/) or Google  
Groups (http://groups.google.com/group/perl.perl6.internals/topics? 

We've already received inquiries from Parrot developers about the  
data we generated and reported.  For example:  Indy:  chromatic would  
like you to rerun those 4 failing tests with 'prove -v' (for verbose  
output).  Apparently last night we only ran them with 'prove'.

Thanks for coming last night and trying out Parrot and Perl 6.

Welcome to the Parrot project and the next generation of Perl!
