18:01 rjbs I hadn't opped. :)
18:02 rjbs steveh: Okay!  It's the last onionsketch of 5.19!  Are you excited?
18:02 steveh Yep :-)
18:02 Topic for #onionsketch is now The State of the Onion | 5.19.11 due on April 20th
18:02 rjbs I saw you got the new CPAN in.  \o/
18:02 rjbs I'm glad to have gotten (a) the new version (b) not a dev version.
18:02 steveh Yes, I figured that one didn't break the code freeze
18:02 rjbs Quite right.
18:03 * rjbs notes that *he* quietly broke it by adding experimental.pm earlier this week.
18:03 steveh haha, well i guess if anyone's allowed to break it, it's you
18:03 rjbs We'd meant to add it earlier, and it just got overlooked.  It should make it less arcane for users to play with experimental features, with that in, so I think it's worth it.
18:03 steveh Agreed
18:04 rjbs I'm hoping to update some docs, especialy perldelta, to show using that rather than "no if ... warnings"
18:04 rjbs The perldelta will certainly get updated, anyway.
18:04 steveh I noted the new module in it, but didn't put any examples in
18:04 rjbs So, this last month has been ridiculous here, so if anything weird-o has happened, I've forgotten it.
18:04 rjbs I've seen the fixes for blockers, a few doc fixes, and CPAN 2.05
18:05 rjbs Think I've missed anything of note?  I'll scan the delta!
18:05 steveh It's been failry quiet apart from some good progress on blockers
18:05 rjbs Yeah, I'm really hopeful that we can get RC0 out shortly after .11
18:05 steveh I'm not aware of anything scary outstanding that isn't on the blockers list, and the smokes are looking good
18:06 rjbs It would be fun to deliver 5.20 on 5/20, but if we can get it out quite a lot earlier, no reason to delay!
18:06 steveh indeed, not least since some of us would call that 20/5 anyway ;-)
18:07 rjbs I don't think we've heard back from our AIX tester, have we? :/
18:07 steveh not that i recall seeing
18:07 rjbs Well, I have a list of "platforms I'd like to see tested" during the RC phase.  I'll publish that soon.  Maybe on the 21st.
18:08 rjbs Smokes do look pretty good, which is good.
18:08 rjbs I wish we had more reliable netbsd builds, although frankly I have no idea whether NetBSD is used in anger anywhere anymore.
18:08 steveh yeah, they do seem to be amongst the noisiest
18:09 rjbs The delta, as expected, looks nice and simple.
18:10 rjbs "we fixed some blockers"
18:10 rjbs Okay, cool.  I really have very little else to say!
18:10 steveh yes - not much else allowed under code freeze, after all
18:10 rjbs Yeah.  It's a weird time of the year for sure :)
18:11 rjbs Lots of stuff getting tacked onto the "5.21.1" ticket.
18:11 steveh no, me neither. i've just enquired about one blocker - 121505. i've not seen the patch that tony last referred to anywhere
18:11 rjbs Alright.  So, 5.19.11 due Sunday.  Anything interesting left to happen before then, other than delta revising?
18:11 steveh would be nice to have that sorted, but not essential for 5.19.11
18:11 steveh likewise 121554 - the VC6 build failure
18:11 rjbs I have to look at a branch for Yves, too.  Probably tomorrow.
18:11 steveh i've not heard anything back from dan
18:12 rjbs Yeah, I really hope Dan will make a release of some sort!
18:12 rjbs Maybe I'll drop him a line, too, although I don't know whether it will help.
18:12 steveh maybe dan missed the email. i'll try emailing off-list to catch his attention. we need to figure out what to do regarding $VERSIONs though
18:13 steveh there's already a new encode release out which isn't in blead, so it's tricky even if he makes a new one!
18:13 rjbs Yeah.  There's always a number between two numbers, so we should be able to work SOMETHING out.
18:13 steveh true. these may end up missing 5.19.11, but i still think things are looking good for 5.20
18:14 rjbs If you mail Dan again, cc me, and I'll follow up to him also.
18:14 rjbs Agreed.
18:14 steveh ok, will do
18:14 rjbs I am looking forward to writing more 5.20 code, even if it does break my syntax highlighting.
18:14 rjbs Anything I can do for you between now and release?
18:14 steveh no, i think i'm on course fine as it is :-)
18:15 rjbs Great!  Then I think I will let you go now, but I'll be around if you realize that something's needing kicking.
18:16 steveh ok, cool :-) good luck with 5.20! i'm looking forward to it :-)
18:16 rjbs Thanks, I'm hoping it'll be smooth sailing.  One RC, no crazy problems, no CVEs...
18:17 steveh fingers crossed! ttfn :-)
