00:05 pointfree-w530 Anyone else feel the darcs needs a tad more evangelism? Maybe a "Why darcs?" page on darcs.net? I've gotten comments that people don't know the benefits of darcs by looking through the homepage. Maybe some bullet points with ideas that git will probably never implement because they stem from the underlying model.

01:23 sm pointfree-w530: I used to feel that way a lot
01:29 sm there is one nice video (by ian lynagh ?) demonstrating darcs' model
01:33 sm but I think darcs needs releases and engineering more than marketing
01:33 pointfree-w530 sm: This one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOGmwA5yBn0
01:34 sm yep that's it
01:35 pointfree-w530 I might have to re-learn Haskell so I can start contributing to darcs.
01:37 pointfree-w530 There's a lot of cool ideas that I think would work especially well with darcs...

01:42 pointfree-w530 I think by virtue of darcs being patch centric it is more content centric. NDN/CCN routes by content-name/identity not content locations (host/ip) -- because where the content comes from is irrelevant... sm, Imagine pulling patches from whatever repo happens to have them!
01:42 sm sounds nice
01:43 sm I see you are #5 in quantity of public repos on darcs hub btw, congrats :)
01:46 pointfree-w530 thnx! I actually stopped using github for my own projects :)
01:47 sm hurrah! one down, 9999999 to go :)
02:02 pointfree-w530 I've also been thinking about ctre in relation to darcs https://github.com/gritzko/ctre No positional logic for diffing. Only uses regex for the heavy lifting -- regular language class only.

17:47 gh_ Heffalump, about version numbers, I'm thinking about going directly to 2.10.0 and not do releases candidates
17:49 gh_ Heffalump, as release canditates rely on testing humanpower that we currently don't have, I'd rather do a 2.10.0 release that everyone can use, and do more minor releases when we fix critical bugs
17:50 gh_ with regards to its longevity, the release 2.8 had few minor versions
18:01 Riastradh joined #darcs
18:12 sm gh_: that seems sensible
18:18 gh_ I recall libreoffice does something similar, actually
18:23 jackhill joined #darcs
18:24 gh_ well maybe not??
18:24 gh_ s/??/..
18:25 gh_ "The first release of the 3.4 series, LibreOffice 3.4.0, is targeted to community members and power users, and should not be implemented in a corporate environment. The Document Foundation has explained that following its time based release schedule – the best strategy for a distributed and cooperative development environment – the best releases for such deployments start from x.x.1.

23:06 pointfree-w530 I can `record` individual files with darcs. After reading the above rant, I wonder how easy it would be to make `darcs pull` individual files and directories.
23:36 dolio Constructing only certain files in the working directory is probably easy. I'm not sure if only sending/storing the information necessary to reconstruct those files is similarly easy.
23:41 dolio And storing the patches would be the expensive part, I think.
23:59 pointfree-w530 dolio, I can also do `darcs log <individual-file.txt>` and `darcs changes -v <individual-file.txt>` however, for some reason I can't do `darcs changes --context <individual-file.txt>` If I could, I could do a `darcs apply` with the resulting patch bundle. `darcs push` apparently just does a `darcs apply` over ssh.
