01:23 plicease So %{pkg_config} might be a good default helper to provide, since it sort of a pain to get right
01:23 plicease https://github.com/plicease/alien-sodium/commit/ab73d208fcd1343122aba11d699865dfb91fb116
01:25 plicease s/pain/non-obvious/
11:51 plicease http://blogs.perl.org/users/graham_ollis/2015/07/alienbase-0020-and-native.html
12:48 plicease so alien_name is used as a source for the pkg_config name and alien_ffi_name (if it isn't specified).
12:48 plicease i think this is actually useful for the most part the guess that will be used for alien_ffi_name is for the most part pretty good
12:48 plicease so now I think we should add a alien_pkg_config_name so that you can specify just that.  but not deprecate alien_name.
13:21 jberger That sounds great
13:24 jberger plicease++ # blog post
13:28 plicease this is serious and warrants a 0.021 right away:
13:28 plicease https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/commit/9c7c349cb16d485cd8a4752e69f2949c21e390ec
13:31 plicease i have to do a release for something at work, then i will do the AB release to fix the bug.
14:02 jberger I don't quite understand it, but if you think its serious, go right ahead
14:49 plicease indeed 0.021 is on its way.  I will also add some new tests to the travis ci that will hopefully catch things like this.
14:50 plicease it's hard to catch in the normal test suite because it involves installing an old AB, installing A::Foo and then upgrading AB.
14:50 plicease it was my fault i introduced the bug.
14:59 jberger yeah, those are tough
16:38 plicease jberger do you have any opposition to PR 132?
16:39 plicease We used to support destdir but it broke recently.
16:39 plicease This will help distribution packagers.
16:39 jberger plicease: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/native/2015-07-15#i_10899361
16:40 plicease that is a separate issue.
16:40 plicease well... I thought it was anyway I thought you were referring to https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/commit/9c7c349cb16d485cd8a4752e69f2949c21e390ec
16:40 jberger oh, are those different
16:40 jberger ?
16:41 plicease what I am asking about is https://github.com/Perl5-Alien/Alien-Base/pull/132
16:41 jberger seemed both to relate to destdir and I'm not reading very carefully today
16:42 plicease no the first one I went ahead and released as 0.021 because it breaks any old Alien dists already installed when you upgrade to 0.020
16:42 plicease this one is much less serious since it only affects dist packagers.  if you aren't unhappy with it I'd like to merge it.
16:43 jberger not unhappy, thus official abstain
16:43 jberger in truth I need to go back and relearn what the staged install does
16:43 jberger I think I used to understand
16:43 jberger but it slipped my mind when I wasn't paying attention
