17:56 _Abigail_ Hello
17:56 rjbs hello!
17:56 rjbs Today's hatred of software is brought to you by email: http://marc.info/?l=postfix-users&m=141261194211085&w=2
17:56 rjbs I will be with you in one minute, finishing a phone call.
17:58 rjbs Okay!  It is surprisingly difficult for me to stay supplied with bus tickets.
17:58 rjbs I have to call the bus line, order them over the phone, and arrange for their delivery with a driver.
17:58 rjbs This hassle means that I often put it off, forget, and end up paying lousy prices.
17:58 rjbs Okay, with that behind me, shall we start a minute early? :)
17:59 _Abigail_ Sure.
17:59 _Abigail_ (Over here, one doesn't need bus tickets)
17:59 _Abigail_ (One card to use all mass transit)
18:00 rjbs Well, this isn't metro bus, but long haul, 75 miles, from Bethlehem to Philadelphia.  I don't know whether that's run by your crazy socialist government, too. :)
18:00 rjbs Oh, you'd have a train.
18:00 rjbs We used to have a train from Philadelphia to Bethlehem until about 1981.  The rails are ripped up, now.  :'(
18:00 _Abigail_ We do have a few lines that go that far, but not many. But even there, you can pay with the same card.
18:00 rjbs Okay, so now it's 14:00.  This may be the first time in *months* that I am here on time.
18:00 _Abigail_ ;-)
18:01 Topic for #onionsketch is now The State of the Onion | 5.21.5 due on October 20th  
18:01 rjbs Have you begun work at all?
18:01 _Abigail_ Hah. No. ;-)  I'm a software engineer, I postpone.... ;-)
18:02 rjbs :-)
18:02 _Abigail_ But I think it's going to be similar to the previous releases I've done.
18:02 rjbs Yes, I should think so.
18:03 rjbs FC and JHI are both quite actively lately, and they keep things interesting. :)  Both are cleaning up after themselves as they go, but you may wish to keep an eye on smokes a bit more carefully toward the 20th, as lately things have been "break and fix" and releasing one between fix and break should be better than between break and fix.
18:03 _Abigail_ JHI is now a Booking.com employee. I wonder whether he'll keep up his activity ;-)
18:03 rjbs Only time will tell!
18:04 rjbs Okay.  So.
18:04 _Abigail_ I will start nudging them if we have breakage in the final week.
18:04 rjbs I don't know of any particular changes we need to fear.
18:04 rjbs I don't know of any current problems with the release tools.
18:05 rjbs I think that Module::CoreList is no longer problematic at all.
18:05 _Abigail_ I didn't get the impression from p5p either. Unless something was mentioned the last two days.
18:05 _Abigail_ Do we have the new numbering scheme in place for Module::Corelist?
18:05 rjbs Yes.  I believe the first such release was the one made after 5.18.4
18:06 rjbs no, 5.20.1 already got one like that
18:06 rjbs I hope to find a bit of time to do the tweaking to the RMG that I wanted to make
18:06 rjbs but I don't think you'll suffer if I don't do it
18:06 rjbs my time is a bit extra constrained as I'm among the zillion programmers taking the Coursera "Programming Languages" course
18:07 * _Abigail_ nods.
18:07 rjbs Let me double-check my old agenda.
18:07 rjbs you have all the permissions you need
18:07 rjbs you will keep an eye on smokes
18:07 rjbs currently smokes are not all red (yay)
18:07 _Abigail_ Yes, and yes.
18:08 rjbs I don't think we have any blockers.  If we do not have a META ticket for "5.21.5 blockers" please make one.
18:08 rjbs ^-- ACTION ITEM :)
18:08 _Abigail_ ;-)
18:08 rjbs We plan to meet again *next* Friday at the same time of day.
18:08 rjbs I believe this covers everything.
18:08 rjbs Is there anything else, or anything you need/would like from me?
18:08 _Abigail_ I'm fine, and I know how to contact you ;-)
18:09 rjbs Okay!  Then thank you for your time, and good luck until then!
18:09 _Abigail_ Thanks.
