Just when you thought all the time and energy lost with the Perl 6 ⇒ Raku renaming drama might be at an end, nope, NOT done yet!

rakulang tweet


Hey, lets don't use nice, short Twitter tags like #raku, but its totally OK when it comes to our raku.org domain name, that's just fine and dandy!

$ curl --head raku.org
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently

Also, pay no attention to our IRC channel name irc://irc.freenode.net/#raku.


Hypocrisy. Who really cares about "proper Twitter tag usage"? Everything means something else:

  • Java refers to coffee
  • Ruby means a kind of gemstone
  • Python means a snake
  • Elixir refers to a magical potion
  • PHP means sadness and despair
  • On and on...
