19:01 rjbs Sorry, I keep forgeting how long it takes me to op up.
19:02 rjbs Created task: automate nickserv identify on magnet
19:02 rjbs stevan: Okay!
19:02 rjbs stevan: How's it going?
19:03 stevan yes, sir, just adding milk to my coffee
19:03 stevan it is going
19:03 stevan things are things
19:03 stevan EU is fun
19:03 rjbs I hear they have languages there.
19:03 stevan I miss Donald Trump, so really I am thankful he has joined the world stage
19:03 rjbs he'll be bringing the show to you, soon enough
19:03 stevan rjbs: perhaps, I think this entire country is in a perpetual state of coughing up a loogey
19:04 rjbs make america's generation the greatest again
19:04 rjbs Okay, so!  It's been 4.5 years since you did this!
19:04 stevan yup
19:05 stevan went over my notes from then, assume lots of stuff has changed
19:05 rjbs In fact, if I'm reading this right, you were 2nd to last person to do a release under Jesse.
19:05 stevan that sounds about right
19:05 rjbs Things are different now.  We don't tolerate failure. \N{DEMON}
19:05 rjbs Yeah, the RMG had at least one big update since then.  I think 2-3.
19:06 rjbs but it's better now than it was, so that's good!
19:06 rjbs I think you'll have no problems, but you'll definitely want to read through it once before the 19th :)
19:06 stevan yup
19:06 rjbs So far, this release looks like a pretty gentle one.
19:06 rjbs We've got two CVE-related fixes in it
19:06 rjbs but they're in, now, so you shouldn't need to be too worried by them
19:06 rjbs I don't think we have any crazy changes pending, *except* for davem's context changes.
19:06 stevan what i did last time was prepare a few test releases just to exercise the old releasin' muscles
19:06 rjbs Cool.
19:07 rjbs Have you seen Dave's work on context stuff?
19:07 stevan I've been following it by proxy, andreasg is my coworker and we talk regularly about that stuff
19:08 rjbs Cool.  So, Andreas is doing smokes on it, because there's some concern that it will change behavior of RIIA
19:08 rjbs but we'll see!
19:08 rjbs (or, rather, the reverse, timely destruction)
19:09 rjbs but that might land before the 20th, in which case maybe we'll see some changes in cpan smokes; something to keep an eye on
19:09 stevan yeah, we have a use care for caring about that kinda stuff
19:09 rjbs Good, keep Dave honest. :)
19:09 stevan yup, I will watch that closely
19:09 rjbs Mostly, though, I think you've got clear seas.
19:09 stevan cool
19:09 stevan do I need to chase anyone down for changes?
19:10 rjbs Big bullet points are unchanged since forever:  keep eyes on smokes, on bug reports.
19:10 rjbs The only chasing down might be the delta.
19:10 stevan ok
19:10 rjbs You need to make sure that perldelta is up to date.  There are two strategies:
19:10 rjbs 1. just do it yourself
19:10 rjbs 2. pester the list and individuals n times
19:10 rjbs ...then do the rest yourself.
19:11 rjbs I suggest #2, and you'll end up wanting to get details on any changes you can't summarize, so ask in advance.
19:11 rjbs I think that the delta remains pretty much the only tedious thing.
19:12 rjbs corelist used to be, but that's been automated a while, and it works well
19:13 rjbs I think I have absolutely no special orders for you!  Hooray for stability.
19:13 rjbs Got any questions/etc for me?
19:13 stevan woot!
19:13 stevan nope, should be good
19:14 rjbs okay, well then I think this was short and sweet
19:14 Topic for #onionsketch is now The State of the Onion | v5.23.7 due on January 20th
19:14 stevan cool, thanks :)
19:14 rjbs Thank you!  You know where to find me if anything comes up.
