17:58 masak \o/ # Rakudo Stockholm is released!
17:58 masak ...with some free promotion of November, Druid and Proto thrown in. :)
17:59 Tene :D
18:05 masak Tene: Genshi doesn't have a test suite.
18:06 masak I plan to write some tests tonight and maybe tomorrow, so I can blog week 8.
18:06 masak Tene: it would be good to divide the work so that you take the HLL part and I take the pure Perl 6 part. if you feel you have the time.
18:07 masak Tene: also, I plan to write to Adrian tonight about Ilya's departure from the grant.
18:07 Tene What part do you want me to do?
18:08 masak Tene: implement the HLL part of Hitomi. :)
18:08 Tene What part is that?
18:08 masak well,
18:09 masak I have this idea that if we bypass Perl 6 and just generate precompiled PIR code from the templates, we might get a speed boost compared to the pure-Perl6 version.
18:09 Tene right
18:10 masak so my plan is this: I'll spend an hour or so writing those tests, and then we can both write one implementation each.
18:11 masak I'm curious about how PCT works, so I'll probably review your commits quite closely.
18:12 masak I do hope that the same test suite can be used for both halves of Hitomi. haven't given much thought to how it would work, because I don't know enough about cross-HLL stuff.
18:38 masak Tene: how does that sound?
18:39 masak we don't need to port the whole of Genshi, because it does a lot of different things, but getting the things in hitomi-example.xml working would already be an improvement over HTML::Template.
18:41 masak as for the email to Adrian, I want to write that I'm not inclined to discontinue the whole grant, and that I would appreciate some way to go forward without Ilya.
18:42 masak either simply cut his parts and declare the remainder of the grant completed after my 11:th week and without Ilya's parts, or transfer Ilya's tasks to me, and I'll do them after my own 11 weeks.
18:47 * PerlJam 's ear perk up
18:47 PerlJam er ... what happened to Ilya?
18:48 masak PerlJam: he had illness in the family, had to devote a lot of time and money to visiting the hospital, during which time he couldn't be active with Web.pm.
18:48 masak PerlJam: now he is overwhelmed by work, and has had to step down from grant work.
18:48 PerlJam ah, bummer x 2
18:49 masak aye.
18:49 masak besides that, I think Web.pm is progressing as planned.
18:49 masak I'm really happy about the progress so far.
18:49 masak hopefully our grant manager will have some suggestions on how to move on.
18:50 masak I'm disinclined to cancel the whole grant, not least because it would look bad on paper.
18:50 PerlJam yeah, don't do that :)
18:50 PerlJam how were you guys going to distribute the grant money?
18:51 masak we assigned hours, and then divided the total amount according to the hours.
18:51 masak it might be possible to negotiate a re-assignment.
18:51 PerlJam gotcha.  I hope Ilya doesn't get short-changed on his part.
18:51 masak so far, no money has been paid.
18:53 masak Adrian said at the start of the grant work that he would look into sending cheques to each of us. haven't heard from him about that since then.
19:09 masak I need to go home to eat. I'll try to stay online during the evening as the flaky neighbor's wireless allows.
19:10 masak Tene: let me know what you think of the above plans. (both re Hitomi and re Ilya's part of the grant)
