06:05 Heffalump notdan_: are you interested in GSoC btw?
06:06 Heffalump dolio: darcs does share its metadata (patches, pristine files, inventories) in a global (per-user) cache via hardlinks, at least in theory
06:09 dolio How long do things live in the cache?
06:25 Heffalump dolio: until they aren't linked to by anything, AFAICR, at least in theory
06:25 dolio Hmm, interesting.
06:27 dolio Is the help on local put being bad not true, then?
06:27 dolio Or does that skip the cache or something?
06:29 Heffalump got a link? darcs put is quite bad in general because it does something quite inefficient which is sort of necessary for remote puts and completely unnecessary for local ones
06:29 Heffalump but I'm not aware OTTOMH of any obvious cache problems it causes
06:29 dolio Just 'darcs help put'
06:30 dolio Maybe i was just reading too much into things.
06:30 dolio I thought I remembered it saying that you should get instead of put, because the former is more efficient, and get talks about hard linking in it being efficient.
06:32 dolio It says put is init + push. So I kind of had it in my head that push wasn't doing the same hard linking as get.
06:33 Heffalump I may be wrong, i only have a vague understanding of the topic
06:34 Heffalump but I suspect since the cache was introduced either would be ok

14:24 notdan_ Heffalump: I am thinking about it. Last GSoC was rather work-inducing and took a lot of my time (which is justified; it is supposed to be a full-time job). But this year the dates are way off. I'll have exams almost during the middle of the GSoC
14:25 notdan_ the dates are adjusted for the american students, I assume, not for the european

18:38 edwardk kowey kowey kowey I invoke thee
18:39 edwardk Does that still work? =)
18:40 gh_ hi edwardk
18:41 edwardk heya
18:41 edwardk it is gsoc time again
18:41 edwardk some darcs mentors should register. ;)
18:41 gh_ oh, forgot about that
18:41 edwardk and beating the bushes to find students is also a good idea =)
18:45 edwardk bascally mentors need to go to google-melange.com register an account and 'request a connection to haskell.org'
18:45 edwardk the link is in the #haskell-gsoc topic
18:46 gh_ thanks, I didn't know aboutthat channel
18:57 gh_ done.
18:58 gh_ Heffalump, maybe you're also interested in doing it again this year?
19:02 edwardk gh_: thanks!

23:26 rdesfo hello
23:27 rdesfo I got the following message when running 'darcs get http://repos.mornfall.net/hashed-storage/'
23:27 rdesfo Finished getting.
23:27 rdesfo darcs: /home/ryan/.darcs/cache/patches/0000000980-fdb7f8b0a11f4171dbbb38bf72f41e1cf7365e4b31ea636859515d1037297cfe-new_6ff5130ee5ccf102d58d005ed9d4e761: getSymbolicLinkStatus: does not exist (No such file or directory)
23:29 Heffalump gh_: yes, happy to mentor the right student and project, I'll register
23:29 rdesfo is this related to [Issue1804 improve "getSymbolicLinkStatus: does not exist" error message ](http://bugs.darcs.net/issue1804)?  Should I add the error to the tickets notes (it's marked resolved)?
23:35 Heffalump rdesfo: does your repo work (try darcsc check to make sure)
23:35 Heffalump notdan: when would you be able to work on it?
23:36 rdesfo darcs check returns "The repository is consistent!"
23:36 Heffalump notdan: and do you have thoughts on what you might like to do? There's ideas on our wiki page which I've been updating, but your own original ideas are also very welcome!
23:37 Heffalump rdesfo: ok, then it's fine. I think issue1804 is a different problem, the issue when doing a darcs get is still quite common :-( I'm not sure what issue it is off the top of my head.
23:38 rdesfo Heffalump: ok thanks
