18:28 Util (posting early since I am leaving for a RL meeting)
18:28 Util * In docs/book/ch13* PASM_QuickRef, I am removing the entries for about 30 old opcodes (i.e. userstack poptop and friends), and adding entries for the ~100 new opcodes. By the end, I should also have code to help keep it in sync with src/ops/*.ops.

18:32 allison Parrot:
18:32 allison - Ticket maintenance and patch application.
18:32 allison - Added a -X command-line option for dynamic extension search paths (modified patch, was -S). Also added long forms --include, --library, and --dynext.
18:32 allison - Made a branch for calling conventions with the first round of changes. Pure PIR subroutine and method calls are working, as are calls to PIR subroutines and methods from C.
18:32 allison - Worked on migrating PCCMETHODs over to the new calling convention internals.
18:32 allison - Edited the first couple of chapters in the book (not checked into trunk until we decide how to handle the difference between the printed book and trunk).
18:32 allison Pynie:
18:32 allison - Worked on implementing print as a function (3.x conversion).
18:32 allison - Worked on implementing keyword arguments (necessary for print as a function).
18:32 allison EOR

18:41 Whiteknight * Helped cotto++ work on the UnionVal deprecations, and explored that issue a little further
18:41 Whiteknight * Caused a bug in i386 JIT. I proposed a solution in TT #551 but no replies
18:41 Whiteknight * Signed up to be GSOC mentor, reviewed some of the applications, volunteered to mentor some
18:41 Whiteknight EOR
18:41 chromatic Did I miss anyone?
18:42 chromatic fperrad, go ahead with your question.
18:42 fperrad do we have to merge branches before release ?
18:42 chromatic Depends on the branch, I say.
18:42 chromatic ... and when the merge can occur.
18:43 allison fperrad: the general rule is to merge branches *after* the release
18:43 fperrad so, no merge in next 7 days ?
18:44 Whiteknight It doesn't look like there are any branches stable and mature enough right now to be merged
18:44 allison a merge is okay if it's a small branch, or doesn't have a substantial impact on core systems
18:44 chromatic If we can merge a branch by Saturday and it's not invasive, I don't worry.
18:44 allison but for the most part, yes, no merges in the next 7 days
18:45 chromatic The header reorganization branch is low risk.
18:45 allison should be fine
18:45 fperrad .eoq
18:45 chromatic Other questions?
18:46 particle- one comment.
18:46 chromatic go ahead
18:46 particle- tpf has gotten 10 preliminary slots for gsoc tihs year, doubling last year's allocation.
18:47 particle- of that, two are parrot related, two are perl 6 related
18:47 chromatic Wow.
18:47 particle- i've assigned *preliminary* mentors to those four projects
18:47 allison excellent!
18:47 particle- official announcments as to accepted projects is on 20 april.
18:48 particle- tpf is still looking for mentors for non parrot and perl 6 projects.
18:48 particle- that is all.
18:48 chromatic allison, want to review milestones?
18:49 allison ok
18:50 allison (https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/wiki/ParrotRoadmap)
18:50 allison We have one unfinished milestone for the 1.1 release, a review of the design for namespaces
18:50 allison Patrick sent a summary of his questions/issues to the list as promised.
18:50 allison I'll look at them tonight.
18:51 allison End of milestone review.
18:51 chromatic Any other questions?
18:52 chromatic Let's call it a week then.
18:52 allison thanks, all!
