02:12 jeffreykegler I guess we just had some sort of glitch, not just here but freenode-wide.
02:14 jeffreykegler I worried for a moment that the channel was suddenly deserted due to spontaneous revulsion to this idea: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/marpa-parser/kJCSa11YSWY
02:16 jeffreykegler but #perl6 suddenly lost 90% of its participants as well. :-)
02:30 ronsavage Marpa::R2 V 2.088. Test statistics:
02:30 ronsavage Fails: 0. Files: 14. Modules: 8. Passes: 8. Tests: 523.
02:30 ronsavage Duration: 1 minute and 24 seconds
02:31 jeffreykegler ronsavage: thanks!

15:46 jeffreykegler Re Kollos development -- I want to encourage a lot of experimentation, but also stick to the "idiosyncrat" (BDFL) model.  How to get have it both ways?
15:46 jeffreykegler 1.) "Kollos" is always something I've authorized.
15:47 jeffreykegler 2.) But Kollos is only one of the "Kolloi" and the others can be anything you like.
15:47 jeffreykegler Names of Kolloi should be one of two things:
15:48 jeffreykegler 1.) A Star Trek character who is *not* one of the regular cast -- that is not Picard, Spock, etc; or
15:49 jeffreykegler 2.) Anything else you like.

18:38 jdurand_ Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/2014-07-11#i_9008878 - damned, Chewbacca is not a candidate then
18:40 jdurand_ about SLIF, I am pretty sure that it would gain a lot of speed if it would be "transpiled" to C don't you think - that would benefit to both Perl, lua, and more since that could be directly available in a library
18:40 jeffreykegler jdurand: Note name guideline number 2.  If big and hairy is your thing, go for it.
18:41 jeffreykegler jdurand: As part of the Kollos project, I plan to convert the SLIF to a C library.  Already much of it is in C ...
18:42 jeffreykegler and I had been thinking how to refactor within the Perl/XS/libmarpa context, ...
18:42 jdurand_ ok, as you may know I already have a procedure that transforms happily an EBNF to marpaWrapper, but since it is already mostly C this is ok
18:42 jeffreykegler but pulling it out into Lua will be easier.
18:42 jdurand_ about the name, I'll go for Kahless!
