Also, AFAIK svn is still used in pkg-perl due to the fact that PET does not
support git. IMHO there's no reason for pkg-parrot to use it, since it
maintains just a single package.

I've been interested in collaborating with rakudo packaging for some time 
since it's quite unusable right now (mainly due to #585762), and offered my 
help to Ryan Niebur (the current maintainer of the rakudo package) many 
times (via #601862, and some private emails) but I've never received a 
response. Then I gave up due to other, more "urgent" Debian work I had to
do. If any help is needed (for both parrot and rakudo) that do not require 
DD status I would be happy to contribute.
