00:05 idiosyncrat Demat!
00:05 idiosyncrat At the moment I'm updating the documents for the new valuator object.
00:06 idiosyncrat This is taking a little extra time, because when I changed the recognizer to allow multiple reads, I didn't add all the new calls to the recognizer document -- the document was more or less consistent without them, not wrong, just incomplete ...
00:07 idiosyncrat and I thought I might be able to combine that documentation pass over the Marpa::R3::Scanless::R POD with another one later, saving duplication of effort.
00:08 idiosyncrat (Also frankly, by that time I was a little tired of working on that particular problem.)
00:09 idiosyncrat So that plan is working out, in the sense I'm able to combine two rewrites of the Marpa::R3::Scanless::R POD into one, and that's what is happening now.
00:09 idiosyncrat From a more long range perspective:
00:10 idiosyncrat At the point I am trying to get all the seriously backward-incompatible changes out of the way.
00:11 idiosyncrat This will make it easier to attract new users to Marpa::R3 -- I won't promise no major backward-incompatibilities after this phase, but I will have reached a point where I don't expect any.
00:12 idiosyncrat After that, I can focus on new features, knowing that those new users enticed by the new features aren't guaranteed lives of misery.  Though that may happen anyway. :-)
00:13 idiosyncrat This is why I've recently brought up the topic of renamings -- after this "Backward Incompatibilites" phase, I'll become more reluctant to change awkward names.
00:14 idiosyncrat It also makes this a good point at which to point out things you'd like renamed.
