21:38 raiph moritz: I'd like to chat about adding an annotation feature...
21:40 pdurbin annotation?
21:42 moritz raiph: another one?
21:50 raiph moritz: yes, another one
21:52 raiph pdurbin: moritz created the summary checkbox annotation
21:52 raiph pdurbin: see, for example: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2014-11-17/summary
21:53 raiph i've been using that annotation mechanism for 2 years
21:53 raiph i could well believe no one is bothering to read the "summary"
21:54 raiph but i strongly believe in the potential for enriching the #perl6 logs
21:55 moritz raiph: yes; the summaries were meant to be embedded in blog posts, for example
21:55 moritz and I'm sure they'd be read if they were
21:56 raiph moritz: doing that manually (cut and paste) took hours
21:56 raiph and led to rsi
21:57 moritz raiph: that's why there are the /summary URLs now, which provide you exactly the HTML you need
21:58 moritz raiph: as well as json output, in case you want to automate it further
21:58 raiph moritz: a key issue is that threads overlap so i still end up with loads of cut/paste
22:00 raiph moritz: i'm not asking you to write any code
22:02 raiph but if you are against enhancing the annotation mechanism then i don't want to spend time on it
22:02 raiph so i thought i had better ask first
22:02 moritz raiph: I'm not against enhancements, if they fit well into the design
22:03 moritz raiph: and I'm happy to discuss specific proposals
22:04 raiph pdurbin: and what moritz is talking about is something like http://blogs.perl.org/users/perl_6_reports/2012/09/perl6-summaries-for-2012-09-02.html
22:05 moritz anyway, time for sleep here
22:05 moritz good night
22:05 raiph moritz: thanks
22:05 raiph goodnight
22:09 raiph pdurbin: would you be willing to chat about the annotation feature I want to add to ilbot?
22:57 pdurbin oh, so that's what "summary" is for
