15:27 nwc10 does libuv intend to be ported to more than "both kinds of operating system?"
15:27 nwc10 admittedly 4: https://github.com/joyent/libuv
15:27 nwc10 but a heck of a lot less than "portable"
15:29 nwc10 or, more usefully, are they amenable to portability patches?
15:31 jnthn Well, https://github.com/joyent/libuv​/blob/master/src/unix/freebsd.c exists despite BSD not being in that list, and a Google around suggests people have got Node.js to run on BSD...
15:31 jnthn *a BSD
15:31 nwc10 5, ha ha ha!
15:31 nwc10 er, 13, ha ha ha!
15:31 nwc10 [or maybe more, at the rate that people fork *BSD :-)]
15:31 jnthn https://github.com/joyent/​libuv/tree/master/src/unix lists more :)
15:32 jnthn I see files related to aix, netbsd and openbsd in there
15:32 nwc10 AIX is a good sign. AIX is cranky
15:32 nwc10 OK, so their top level docs do them a disservice
15:33 jnthn Well, no idea how well it works :) But it looks promisinger than the README suggests.
15:33 nwc10 yes, totally
15:33 nwc10 the README looks a bit, well, "both kinds of OS, Ubuntu and RedHat" (or however else you grumble about it)
15:35 nwc10 It looks like actually they only need HP/UX before they start to get into the really quite obscure OSes

16:22 jlaire joined #moarvm
17:21 masak hehe, "Ubuntu and RedHat" :P
17:35 diakopter nwc10: bigger problem is the python-only build system
17:35 diakopter (to some people)
17:54 jnthn Doesn't seem to have hurt Node.js adoption? :)
17:55 diakopter some people: :P
18:02 FROGGS jnthn: btw, this is how I track regressions: http://usev5.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/hack.png
18:02 timotimo that looks pretty nice
18:04 timotimo jnthn: having not yet looked at the grammar for that thing, do you think i can just add something like '}' [class|if|when|sub|...] { die "strange text after end of block. did you mean to put a semicolon or newline?" }?
18:04 timotimo with [ ... ]? around it of course
18:05 timotimo wait, why did i post this here?
18:20 nwc10 is libuv packages for "both :-)" OSes?
18:21 jnthn timotimo: I'd rather stick as close to std as we can
18:25 FROGGS timotimo: you could nag TimToady though, he'd say if it is worth it or not
