Package: rakudo
Version: 2017.06-1
Severity: minor

Dear rakudo maintainers,

in Jessie's version of the REPL, it is possible to edit the current
line and recall the previous lines using the arrow keys.  This does
not seem to be possible anymore with the versions in Stretch and Sid,
which give the following messages when entering the REPL.

You may want to `zef install Readline` or `zef install Linenoise` or use rlwrap for a line editor

The `zef` program does not seem to be distributed in Debian.

I there an easy way to re-enable readline support in perl6 ?

Have a nice day,
