15:02 isBEKaml wow, this is a ghost town.
15:02 isBEKaml last activity was in Sep13
15:17 stevan_ isBEKaml: yeah, after last years YAPC I decided to give the MOP in Core one more try
15:17 stevan_ and work and life and all that too
15:18 isBEKaml stevan_: yeah - I heard about your work on p5mop (twitter /other channels).
15:18 isBEKaml I myself was feeling a little sad at not being able to contribute as I would have liked.
15:18 stevan_ Moe was a good experiment
15:19 stevan_ taught me a lot
15:19 isBEKaml When viewed from that angle, do you consider Moe a success?
15:20 stevan_ hell yeah, I had a blast :)
15:20 isBEKaml And, do you have any followup talks to that "dead end" talk? :-)
15:20 stevan_ I did one at yapc, but that was basically just observations from the post "dead end" talk
15:21 isBEKaml then please blog/talk about what happened to Moe and what came of it
15:21 stevan_ basically that CPAN is a large reason why we can't move forward too, cause all the key modules use those old crappy features too
15:22 stevan_ isBEKaml: yeah, I am going to do that, just have to find the time, which I am very short supply of these days
15:22 isBEKaml We should leave XS behind, if you ask me. JVM and XS don't mix.
15:22 isBEKaml Though, it has that unfortunate effect of leaving most of CPAN behind.
15:22 stevan_ yeah XS is an issue, I am actually trying to learn it right now, so that I can 1) finish off the MOP and 2) have a better place to criticize it from :)
15:23 stevan_ isBEKaml: yes, that is basically what I surmised, if we dont keep the back compat we lose CPAN
15:24 isBEKaml Yeah, "I'm going to fire rockets at you. But first I have to climb that high mountain so you can't fire back at me!" :P
15:25 stevan_ haha
15:37 isBEKaml Thanks, stevan_ - I'll be expecting that talk from you :-)
