19:00 autarch I'm ready whenever
19:06 autarch rjbs: did I get the time wrong?
19:08 rjbs ooking
19:08 rjbs no, I forgot to put an alert on my calendar event.
19:08 rjbs Sorry, I am totally here now!
19:09 autarch heh
19:09 autarch we're going to have to dock your pay
19:09 rjbs ...and as the release manager for the last release, he's here too!
19:09 rjbs So, this is at least your third release, right?
19:10 autarch 2nd
19:10 rjbs Oh, okay!
19:10 autarch I did it last year in December too
19:10 rjbs Well, it's not your first, so a lot of stuff is already known to be taken care of.
19:10 rjbs ...and the release manager's guide work that you did has been quite useful, and the guide has been updated a few times since then.
19:10 autarch cool
19:11 autarch have people been keeping the checklist generator markers up to date?
19:11 autarch I don't know if anyone else has used that
19:11 rjbs You may well end up wanting to tweak it a bit more...
19:11 rjbs I use it.  They're up to date, but not perfect.
19:11 rjbs A few things still say "unless X" when they could just have been excluded.
19:11 rjbs or so it seemed to me.
19:11 autarch yeah, the idea was to be able to generate a document that lists all the steps you must do, and none you can ignore
19:11 rjbs right
19:11 autarch I can update it
19:11 rjbs It's not perfect, right now.
19:11 rjbs That would be keen.
19:12 autarch I'll try to do that in the next week or so
19:12 rjbs I don't know of any current issues with broken builds, etc.
19:12 rjbs The new hashing has led to a bunch of broken CPAN dists, but that isn't your concern so much.
19:12 rjbs feel free to harass people to make fixes, though
19:12 autarch have people been keeping up to date on perldelta?
19:13 rjbs perldelta has been keeping pretty well up to date in general, but you'll still want to give it a final review
19:15 autarch of course
19:15 rjbs poking the list to check its own delta-ing a few days before helped, last time
19:15 rjbs "if you changed stuff, delta it now or I will guess"
19:15 autarch sure
19:15 rjbs There are a few contentious changes that might go in between now and then, related to \cK and escapes in cyoq regex... but I think that basically you're on track for a totally vanilla release of perl.
19:15 autarch I added a note to my todo list
19:15 autarch to poke people to update perldelta, that is
19:15 rjbs One thing to double-check:  Yves patched 1+ dists in core to fix them w/r/t hashing.
19:15 rjbs I don't know whether all those changes were included in CPAN releases, but it'd be good to hassle those authors again if they're not all updated.
19:15 autarch ok
19:16 rjbs You can check the logs on changes in ./cpan to get the list.
19:16 autarch right
19:16 rjbs Apart from that, I think I've got nothing.
19:17 autarch cool
19:17 rjbs Any questions, comments, important notes, etc., from you?
19:18 autarch I don't think so
19:18 autarch it wasn't too hard last time or anything
19:18 autarch and I updated the docs a fair bit so I'm hoping it'll be easier this time ;)
19:23 autarch so is there anything else?
19:40 autarch left #onionsketch
