For some reason I can't reply higher than this, but yeah, that was a side-project of mine that's in no way official.

If you looked at it closely, I made many changes in the spirit of getting something running that PG (and you!) would likely not agree with.

I know nothing of PG's plans for future releases, and I'd not be the one doing them.

Sorry!

I didn't see the repo while it was online, but I've always looked forward to Arc (or at least Anarki) becoming usable as a Racket language at some point, even if it were an awkward fit. Just how disagreeable are we talking, here? :)

Exceptionally. I'll put it back up with a better ReadMe once I've verified I didn't accidentally leak anything I shouldn't have.

Let's just say it was bad enough that someone emailed PG to express despair at the direction things seemed to be heading.

Well, we'll give you more constructive criticism. Often of the form, "see here for how I did it" :p

Thanks! Welcome to the club of unofficial forks! Who cares what anybody else agrees with! :)

(I believe the HN codebase expires reply links after 14 days, as a spam control measure.)
