14:01 neilb oalders++
14:01 oalders ah, there he is
14:01 oalders neilb: https://github.com/CPAN-API/metacpan-web/issues/83
14:01 dipsy [ Add metadata to identify pure perl and XS distributions · Issue #83 · CPAN-API/metacpan-web · GitHub ]
14:02 oalders is that what you meant about flagging XS?
14:05 neilb yeah, though would be nice if metacpan could just work it out and put a flag on dists, rather than rely on authors providing metadata :-)
14:06 neilb A few people got XS modules, and I’ve heard various “WTF?!” and “oh shit” comments. I have a simple “ignore dists with XS in the name”, but that one caught a few ;-)
14:07 neilb thanks for the feedback. I need to mail the list and ask everyone to give such feedback, to help me hone the selection criteria. I have loads of ideas that I meant to include, but I ran out of time.

14:28 sawyer neilb: in future rounds we can have people who register opt in for specific stuff
14:28 sawyer or opt out, whatever
14:29 * sawyer is already thinking of a management system
14:32 neilb yeah, thinking flags on users and dists. I already have a minimal set, but need more!
14:37 sawyer MOAR
15:08 oalders neilb: yeah, having the XS flags in the API would be a big help for what you're doing
15:09 oalders is your code on github yet?
15:10 oalders we could put most of the heuristics of https://github.com/CPAN-API/metacpan-web/issues/83#issuecomment-67317592 into an api query for now
