02:56 steven_is_false Hello. I wish to know if src/gc/malloc_trace.c is ever used in production. It has a very, very tiny security weakener and I was wondering if that is something that people should care about? src/gc/malloc_trace.c is only ever used in debug builds right?
03:04 steven_is_false left #parrot
03:16 Util stephen_is_false: I believe that it is the original intention, that malloc_trace.c is only ever used in debug builds.
03:18 Util However, I would like to include your concerns, and the details of the security weakener, in our docs, as a warning to packagers.

12:35 rurban malloc_trace is entirely unused and is documented as such (src/gc/api.c)
12:40 rurban both malloc files are just old upstream versions of standard glibc dlmalloc, not even ptmalloc2/3. they should be removed
14:45 Chirag joined #parrot
15:21 Chirag rurban: does, get_pointer, set_integer_native, unshift_integer, find_method, isa, invoke ----- are the only VTABLE methods left to be exported... I am directly calling all the others now. Maybe I can try exporting these as well
15:47 rurban didn't I exported all VTABLE methods already?
15:47 rurban But maybe I left out some, where I found no users. If you find users, remove the static, and convert it sure.
15:48 Chirag will do.. do I even push callcontext.c ?
15:53 rurban as long as pmc2c is not changed we need to push the hand-edited sources, yes
15:54 Chirag i ll finish it soon and then change pmc2c if our tests look good
