21:53 masak http://use.perl.org/~masak/journal/38033
21:53 zarah masak's link is also http://tinyurl.com/6cwykg
21:54 masak blogging about blogging about coding :)
21:56 moritz_ speaking of blogging, I might point you to http://perlgeek.de/blog-en/​perl-6/tidings-2008-12.html
21:56 zarah moritz_'s link is also http://tinyurl.com/5cs7pa
21:59 moritz_ nice and honest wrap-up
21:59 masak moritz_: gracias.
22:00 masak moritz_: also, nice to see Tidings every month. I think that's worth a lot, especially for outsiders.
22:01 moritz_ masak: funny thing is, I didn't plan to do it monthly, it just happened to come out like this until now
22:01 masak that type of planning is sometimes the best one.
22:01 moritz_ aye
22:01 masak (Zen planning)
22:02 moritz_ man, this freaking test suite needs so much more love... jonathan has a patch that makes rakudo die on unknown type names... it's breaking havoc
22:04 moritz_ I need to attract more minio^Wcontributors
22:05 masak moritz_: let's say I gave you half an hour right now. what would you like me to do?
22:06 masak er, I mean "yesss, master?" :P
22:06 moritz_ masak: review tests in t/oo and move to t/spec/, or write multi *method* dispatch tests
22:07 moritz_ (we have so many multi *sub* dispatch tests, and so little MMD)
22:07 masak the former sounds more like a task for my deranged brain
22:07 masak ...at least for now. pushing the latter to some low-prio queue of things to do.
22:08 * masak takes a look at t/oo
22:08 moritz_ I feel I still haven't grokked Perl 6 OO at all (partly because I usually don't use it), so it's a bit behind in t/spec/
22:08 masak dunno whether I grokked it either
22:09 masak we'll see, I guess
22:34 masak moritz_: so I just make sure they run in Rakudo, and fudge them if they don't -- and then move them to t/spec/ ?
22:35 moritz_ masak: the most important step is to check that they actually conform to the specs (at least mostly=
22:36 moritz_ masak: as for the rest: exactly
22:36 masak oh.
22:36 masak I need to re-read S12.
22:36 moritz_ if they pass a few tests, and the rest is fudged, you can also add them to t/spectest.data in rakudo
22:36 masak ah, yes.
