18:48 ranguard jdv79: thanks for sending the pull request
19:13 jdv79 np
19:14 ranguard #perl6 channel is crazy.. do discussions happen on mailing lists or something as well?
19:19 jdv79 i'm not sure.  i used to follow some of the lists years ago but haven't in a long time
19:20 jdv79 i do know that a lot, if not all, goes down in irc
19:21 jdv79 i used to backlog but its getting harder in the last few months
19:21 jdv79 http://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2015-12-21 helps sometimes with backlogging and searching
19:53 neilb joined #metacpan
19:57 ranguard jdv79:  ahh, I saw FROOGS on another channel and got him/her to +1 your pull as well :)
19:58 ranguard FROGGS even
20:27 jdv79 cool.
20:45 ranguard batshit crasy...
20:45 ranguard 20:18 < ZoffixW> ranguard, in Perl6, two different authors can release module named Foo::Bar
20:45 ranguard 20:18 < ZoffixW> ranguard, and the user can specify which one they want with :auth<> adverb
20:45 ranguard use Foo::Bar:ver<v1>:auth<zoffix> and use Foo::Bar:ver<v1>:auth<rabid> are different
20:46 ranguard the idea is to allow forks more easily
20:51 mst at least this avoids ::ButtMaintained
20:57 jdv79 p6 takes it to the next level of crazy:)
21:00 ranguard mst: sure, Foo::Bar:ver<v55.5>:auth<badcoder> Foo::Bar:ver<v1.0>:auth<goodcoder> - how much work to find when someone recommends Foo::Bar
21:00 jdv79 whats an alternative though?
21:01 ranguard ::ButtMaintained is a PITA, but at least with a better search/recommend system avoids wierd clashing...
21:02 ranguard I guess what ever a better search/recommend system is needed (for P5 as well)
21:03 ranguard but less mental work tracking which package is which, I'd rather have Foo::Bar::ButtMaintained, than  <v1.0>:auth<goodcoder>
21:05 jdv79 yeah idk.  cant wait to see it in play.
21:05 mst I would expect to have a 'blessed' auth for the primary author or something
21:05 mst basically, it'll only be a problem if people do stupid things
21:05 mst ranguard: yeah, but Alt:: wasn't a good idea either
21:07 ranguard well, at least I wont' have to pass out PERMS back to P6 authors :)
21:36 * ranguard adds... SEO to agrument against multiple things of exactly the same name
21:37 jdv79 thats where metacpan6 can add value;)
21:38 ranguard jdv79: hopefully you won't have to compete with search.cpan.org
21:39 ranguard though I must say, my motivation for this is dwindling :)
21:39 jdv79 see it through!
21:39 jdv79 once that pause bug is fixed should be almost done, right?
21:40 jdv79 even if its just a one shot
21:40 ranguard jdv79: I guess, and as I won't have to transfer PerMS
21:40 jdv79 thanks again
21:41 ranguard I don't mean helping you with MC6 btw
21:42 ranguard code is done as far as I know :)
21:43 jdv79 yes.  we should do that soon too.
21:43 jdv79 maybe in a couple months realistically.
21:44 ranguard give me a yell when you want to talk deployment :)
21:44 ranguard if you can make it use a different ES index name that'll make things easier
21:46 jdv79 sure.  cool.
