EATING OUR OWN DOG FOOD ----------------------- Unlike the Parrot Plumage client itself (which resides in the src/ directory), programs in this directory are not for end-user consumption. Rather they will be used for metadata maintenance on the server and by developers of Plumage. Because these are not end-user programs, the requirement that they be written entirely in NQP and PIR can be relaxed: they are free to use any language that can be installed by Plumage. In practice, we expect that most will be written for the most recent Rakudo from git as a matter of convenience and familiarity by the core Plumage team. If there is no way to perform a needed task using Parrot, please do these three things: 1. Open a ticket for Parrot or the HLL requesting the needed functionality. 2. In the mean time, use Perl 5 (preferably via Blizkost) to provide just the single piece of missing functionality and do everything else in a Parrot- hosted language. 3. As soon as the ticket in step 1 is resolved, convert the code from step 2 to use the new Parrot functionality instead. Mmmmm, tasty, tasty dog food!
