Issues Blocking 2016.01 Rakudo compiler release

First, review jnthn++'s notes on post-christmas releases.

  • Christmas tests are broken - See attached xmas failures
    • checkout & build from nom.
    • insure t/spec is pointing at the 6.c branch.
    • Run "make stresstest"
  • Need to decide on 6.c track vs. 6.d track or combined release that selects behavior based on "use"

Christmas release plans
View gist:dc55e617e76a6f7082f9
Christmas - 2015-12-25.
This is the monthly compiler release, the first to target the 6.c specification.
Will include notes about what the 6.c spec means; hopefully how to get an extracted copy; potentially just a reference to the roast repo.
There is no specific time planned for the release. Please be patient. Thank you.
In addition to the compiler release announcement we normally make, I'll repost the announcement for this release on the Advent calendar.

Open vs. New RTs

If a ticket is "new" in RT, it implies that no one has done anything with the ticket. if you can dupicate the error that was reported, please "open" the ticket and leave a comment that you can verify the issue exists.
