05:53 masak vendethiel: just saw the above.
05:54 masak vendethiel: ok, I note that you're in the "BEGIN runs per expansion" consistency camp as per https://irclog.perlgeek.de/​perl6/2017-01-31#i_14015667
05:54 masak vendethiel: I've had a longish period of low 007 activity, but now (on vacation) I'm back in the saddle with some concrete goals.
05:56 masak https://github.com/masak/007/issues/194 sits at the center of those goals; I want to pull 007 along the shortest path to where it's actually macro-*impressive* in the sense that it does things Perl 6 does not do yet, it has a story (however flawed) for `is parsed`, and it allows us to write some nontrivial macros
05:56 masak I think if I land #214 I can easily do #122, #152, and #203
05:57 masak after that, #176 is probably achievable
05:57 masak all of these are blocking-ish
05:57 masak many of these are blocking-ish on better regexes, so I might task-steal that from you in the coming days/weeks
05:58 masak (but don't take that as meaning that I don't appreciate help/discussion -- I most certainly do) :)
05:58 masak oh, #207 would definitely be nice to have too
05:59 masak so our mission is kind of "fill up examples/ with cool macro stuff"
05:59 masak I haven't forgotten the push towards v1.0, though -- it's still a goal, too
