19:34 estrabd sorry if this is the wrong place for this question, but what's the expectation for an XS module that is basically a wrapper around a third party library?
19:35 estrabd do I assume the lib can be found on the system and let if fail during the build if not?
19:35 estrabd maybe #xs would also be a good place to ask
19:35 estrabd heading over there...
19:39 haarg #toolchain might be another place to ask
19:43 mst estrabd: sometimes people try and introduce an Alien:: package but it's pretty common to expect the vendor package to already be there
19:49 aleksei joined #metacpan
19:59 estrabd mst: thanks!
20:00 estrabd thanks, haarg
20:00 mst estrabd: basically I'd start off assuming it can be found, get that working first, then consider whether it's worth being more clever
20:00 estrabd sounds like a good plan
20:00 mst it's normal enough that if anybody complains about that, you can tell them to piss off with a clear conscience
20:01 estrabd lol sounds good

20:42 ether is something up with the site? this release was announced over 2 hours ago, but the link is still not working: https://i.imgur.com/k5SyHiV.gifv
20:42 ether er wrong link :)
20:42 ether https://metacpan.org/release/PHRED/Archive-Zip-1.52
20:42 ether that one
22:08 neilb_ joined #metacpan
22:40 haarg doesn't seem to be a general problem, since other things are getting indexed fine
22:54 ether yeah, very odd.
22:54 ether the URL still doesn't resolve
22:55 ether it doesn't show up here either -- https://metacpan.org/author/PHRED/releases?size=500
