13:04 PerlJam So ... how do MoarVM releases generally work?  (I'm starting the Rakudo release process and need a MOAR_REVISION for NQP)
13:15 [Coke] usually, jnthn does it.
13:15 [Coke] is there a doc in the repo telling us what to do?
13:16 JimmyZ see moarvm/docs
13:16 JimmyZ https://github.com/MoarVM/MoarVM/blob/master/docs/release_guide.md
13:18 PerlJam I guess I can cut a moar release too (unless there's some reason I shouldn't?)
13:18 PerlJam Though item #2 in the release guide seems a little circular to me  ;)
13:20 JimmyZ hmm, the guide didn't mention to update Changelog :P
13:20 PerlJam oh ... I don't even know if I have a commit bit for the MoarVM repo.
13:21 PerlJam (I'm guessing not)
13:25 PerlJam is moar normally built with JIT support?
13:28 brrt aye, today it is
13:29 PerlJam So ... should I do a PR for the releasey bits (tagging and such)?  Or would someone give me a commit bit for MoarVM?  Or ... does someone else want to do the release?
13:30 PerlJam Even if I can do the release, someone else is going to have to upload the tarball
13:30 FROGGS PerlJam: only jnthn can upload the tarball me thinks
13:54 JimmyZ jnthn++ and pmichaud++ is the owner
15:39 PerlJam FROGGS: who can hand out commit bits?  (Or could you or someone else do a moarvm release?)
15:40 FROGGS PerlJam: I could prepare a release, but I cannot upload the tarball
15:40 PerlJam that would be awesome (for me)
15:40 FROGGS k
15:40 PerlJam at least get the 2014.10 tag in the repo
15:41 FROGGS PerlJam: that should be done in at max 2.5 hours
15:42 PerlJam thanks.
15:43 FROGGS brb

15:53 TimToady We have to do three things for 6.0: GLR, NFG, NSA...and a fanatical devotion to unfudging tests...
15:55 TimToady well...almost...
15:55 PerlJam .oO( The NSA controls Perl 6?!?! )
15:56 [Coke] S99:NSA?
15:56 synopsebot Link: http://perlcabal.org/syn/S99.html#NSA?
15:58 [Coke] I know what NFG is; what does it buy us? faster unicode strings handling?
15:58 [Coke] nicer API for the users?
15:59 JimmyZ NSA = No Such Authority :P
16:00 PerlJam [Coke]: I've tended to think of it as "correcter code" since we'll be able to compare characters to characters without having to worry about multiple decompositions.
16:00 JimmyZ oh, and ESC
16:01 [Coke] ... crap, wrong window.
16:01 [Coke] but PerlJam++
16:01 JimmyZ someone may like this: http://wiki.luajit.org/Allocation-Sinking-Optimization

18:24 FROGGS http://froggs.de/perl6/MoarVM-2014.10.tar.gz
18:25 FROGGS jnthn / pmichaud: please upload that tarball to moarvm.org
18:25 FROGGS PerlJam: done
18:25 PerlJam FROGGS: danke
18:26 FROGGS PerlJam: you're welcome :o)
18:26 FROGGS PerlJam: but please keep in mind: no release announcement as long as the tarball is not up
18:26 PerlJam aye
18:27 FROGGS (I failed this twice)
18:27 [Coke] does the moar tarball go on rakudo.org?
18:27 FROGGS no, moarvm.org
18:28 [Coke] "Rakudo on Parrot may have a small edge, but that is changing fast". changed already, yes?

19:42 Ven joined #moarvm
19:47 jnthn Whoa, I was so tired after the travel and walking by the sea yesterday I totally forgot about the release...
19:48 jnthn FROGGS_: The tarball is now in place
19:48 jnthn FROGGS++
19:48 FROGGS_ \o/
19:49 jnthn FROGGS_: You're already a committer for the website repo, but I can happily do that too...
19:49 FROGGS_ jnthn: do what?
19:49 FROGGS_ am I able to upload a tarball?
19:50 FROGGS_ ahh, no, you are talking about the version info on the page
19:51 jnthn Right, the web pages
19:51 jnthn I was logged into the server hosting it so just wget'd the tarball into the right directory :)
19:51 jnthn ooh, the sun just came out...
19:51 FROGGS_ I can fiddle with the page in a bit :o)
19:52 * jnthn glances the ChangeLog and is happy we managed to do quite a bit
19:53 jnthn Also how few of the bits were done by me :)
19:53 FROGGS_ *g*
19:54 kjs_ joined #moarvm
19:54 FROGGS_ jnthn: btw, I did a clone of your OO::*, and have trouble... I'll put my things in a repo tomorrow-ish and then I'd be happy about hints :o)
19:56 FROGGS_ I think you might guess what keyword it implements :o)
19:56 jnthn ooh :)
19:57 FROGGS_ though, the tricky bit is to export an &EXPORT that sets up the %*LANG hash...
19:58 FROGGS_ (and to conditionally export the &EXPORT)
20:20 * jnthn goes out for some sightseeing :)
20:20 jnthn bbl
20:22 FROGGS_ gnight
