Fwd: How can I help keep the Perl 6 "rakudo" package updated?

I work with Perl 6 and we are hoping to help maintain the *latest* release
of the Perl 6 compiler for the Linux community as much as possible...

$ *sudo apt-get install rakudo*

This is *way* out of date, unfortunately...

Description-en: Perl 6 implementation on top of Moar virtual machine
 Rakudo Perl is a compiler that implements the Perl 6 specification and
runs on
 top of several virtual machines. Debian rakudo package runs on top of
 Perl 6 is a programming language, member of the Perl family. Like Perl 5,
 world-famous big sister, Perl 6 intends to carry forward the high ideals of
 the Perl community and is currently being developed by a team of dedicated
 enthusiastic volunteers.
 valgrind package installation is suggested to debug issues with
 perl6-valgrind-m program.

Is there anything I can do to help maintain this package for the greater
good and keep the lastest release available?  Perl 6 is an evolving
implementation, but it's really important to keep the latest versions
available as things progress and I would like to offer some help, perhaps.

Thank you!
