The cages and the cages

I submitted a patch for Parrot and it was even accepted.

Parrot is the codename for the central part of the next version of the Perl language, Perl 6 (it’s a dynamic registered-based virtual machine, if you’re technically inclined). Because it is called Parrot, there’s a role in the development team called “cage cleaners” – the people who do all the little work without diving deeply into the magick algorithms. So i am one of them.

This patch doesn’t do much except aligning some spacing and indentation in a Perl file. But i’m still insanely excited. It is not functional for Parrot, but it helps developers write code without bugs.

More to come … i hope.
