17:31 kowey joined #darcs-theory
20:07 arjanb anything new in theory land?
20:10 Igloo I'll probably try to make some progress once we reach a quite phase of the GHC 6.10 release process
20:10 Heffalump when is the RC likely to appear?
20:11 Igloo On schedule (i.e. end of this week) I hope (except we might rebrand it as a beta, given we have 0 intention of it actually being released unchanged)
20:12 * Igloo wants a way to prove associativity of catch commute without writing lots of stuff down. I'm hoping that treating patches as a poset will help with that
20:14 Igloo I've also been collecting my thoughts and discussions on repo format and name generation on http://projects.haskell.org/camp/
20:16 Heffalump is that a renaming from minidarcs?
20:16 kowey camp should be an interesting project to watch :-)
20:18 Igloo yup
20:19 Igloo (to Heffalump, although hopefully to kowey too  :-)  )
20:20 kowey if we could encourage ejt and evan to work on their respective projects, we could have a nice little Haskell Version Control Community on our hands
20:20 Heffalump what are their respective projects?
20:20 kowey ejt is working on a mercurial clone; evan on a git clone
20:21 kowey evan's project is not-so-serious, just trying to learn git
20:21 Heffalump I don't see much value in a Haskell Version Control Community for its own sake. Camp is a good idea because it has the potential to be darcs done right (in the senses that darcs is wrong, if any, anyway)
20:21 kowey well, there is to  be gained from in starting over
20:22 kowey http://community.livejourna​l.com/evan_tech/254793.html <-- this is the evan I'm talking about
20:22 kowey oh my first comment was agreeing with "darcs done right"
20:23 kowey as for the version control community, there may be potential for shared code, or at least increasing Haskellers' interest in version control
22:10 lispy Camp?
22:10 lispy oh I see, minidarcs became camp
22:10 lispy why camp?
22:10 Igloo "Commute And Merge Patches"
22:11 lispy ah
22:11 lispy I learned that as soon as I finally went to the project page :)
22:11 lispy cool
