18:32 Tene Pasting my report now:
18:32 Tene * Add gather/take to cardinal

18:39 jhorwitz speaking at pittsburgh perl workshop.  revising mod_perl6 talk to reflect recent changes.
18:40 jhorwitz egan writing some handy mod_perl6 modules (Apache::Constants, etc.).  ran into a nasty segfault with "use" and multi-level namespaces (see my followup to RT #58368).  i wrote some simple test cases, and help would be much appreciated.
18:40 jhorwitz ^b

18:42 chromatic barney?
18:42 barney ENOREPORT  Try to get some Pipp stuff done in the next weeks
18:42 chromatic allison?
18:43 allison - Sorry to miss last week's #parrotsketch, I messed up my time-zone calculations and was on an airplane when I expected to be on airport wireless access.
18:43 allison - In the past two weeks, I resolved almost all the failing core and language tests in the MMD branch. Please take a look and let me know of any show-stoppers, as I plan to merge in the branch soon after I get home to Cape Town.
18:44 allison - I also spoke about Parrot at the JVM Languages Summit last week, and got a very positive response on some of the dynamic features of Parrot, as the JVM expands to accommodate more dynamic languages.
18:44 allison EOR
18:44 chromatic Anyone else?
18:44 * moritz queues a question he forgot to mention
18:45 chromatic moritz, go ahead.
18:45 moritz we have a pynie contributer who likes to stay anonymous - is that ok from a legal POV?
18:45 moritz or do we need a real name in CREDITS or somewhere?
18:45 allison If the contributions are small enough, anonymous is fine.
18:46 NotFound There are a lot of no real names in CREDITS
18:46 allison Though, I should talk to him and make sure there's no legal encumbrance from his employer.
18:46 moritz ok
18:46 allison It may also be possible to get a signed CLA from his employer with no individual name.
18:47 * pmichaud queues a question.
18:47 allison (just to document the legal path)
18:47 allison EOA
18:47 chromatic pmichaud?
18:47 pmichaud Tene mentioned the weird bug in RT #59410 -- will someone (chromatic) be able to throw some tuits at it?  It's a blocker for rakudo next/last/redo handling.
18:48 pmichaud (as well as being, well, weird.)
18:48 pmichaud I might see if I can come up with a simplified example of the bug.
18:48 chromatic A simplified example will help greatly.
18:49 chromatic It tickles my memory as to something we saw on the concurrency branch though.
18:49 pmichaud I may create a branch for testing it, that's probably easier than throwing patches around.
18:49 pmichaud also, I haven't received any further comments on the lexicals proposal, so I'm planning to go ahead with it in a branch as well.
18:50 chromatic Oh yeah, that thing I meant to do on the plane/train.
18:51 pmichaud eoq.
18:51 chromatic Any other questions?
18:52 chromatic That sounds like a no.  Great work getting the Rakudo numbers up to 100 more tests per day.
18:52 chromatic See you all next week!
18:53 allison Thanks, c!
18:53 moritz ciao
18:53 rurban bye!
