18:40 moritz does anybody else here have a report?
18:41 pmichaud moritz?  ;-)
18:41 moritz my report is: trying to grok Perl 6 regexes and action methods. mostly failing. EOR.
18:41 pmichaud I'd be very glad to see where people are having difficulty with regexes and action methods
18:42 pmichaud since one of my big presentations for the summer (yapc/oscon) is likely to be about perl 6 regexes and grammars

18:43 jhorwitz netsplit--
18:43 jonathan moritz: I think tweety was on the other half of the netsplit.
18:43 jonathan Let me re-paste...

18:46 particle- oh, various yapc::na/parrot virtual machine workshop logistics, too
18:46 particle- q1c
18:46 Tene PAST:
18:46 Tene * Lots of work using Perl 6, not much Parrot work
18:46 Tene * Tried to migrate rakudo partially to .HLL to help work with PMC HLL issues.  I didn't even make it that far.  Got lots of segfaults.  Stalled.
18:46 Tene * Made a simple example of .HLL PMC failure.
18:46 Tene * Harassed jhorwitz about some mod_parrot fails.
18:46 Tene * I keep thinking about packaging and distribution.
18:46 Tene FUTURE:
18:47 Tene * More work using Perl 6
18:47 Tene * Harassing jhorwitz about mod_perl6 fails, which might be related to some other PMC issues... still investigating
18:47 Tene * PCT Presentation at Penguicon the coming weekend... still need to write my talk. :)

18:48 chromatic Did I miss anyone?
18:48 rdice ping?
18:48 pmichaud pong
18:48 chromatic Go ahead, rdice.
18:48 rdice Thanks.
18:49 rdice Re: TPF - processing jworthington's recently completed and happily-successful Hague grant,
18:49 rdice and setting up the rfc process for his new one.  (both are now on the news.perlfoundation.org blog)
18:49 rdice I have also put an rfc re: TPF employing me for the next 6 months online at the blog too.  I expect the TPF Board will be making a decision on this matter in the next few days.
18:50 rdice Personally:  I'm working on some Parrot NCI stuff that will make a certain big C++ library available to Rakudo.  I'm just scratching the surface and it's all baffling and stuff, but I am optimistic. :-)
18:50 rdice .end
18:51 jonathan rdice++ # dealing with my grant stuff quickly - thanks!
18:51 chromatic Anyone else?
18:51 pmichaud pong

18:53 chromatic Anyone else?
18:53 chromatic Question time.
18:53 Coke <me>
18:53 schmalbe joined #parrotsketch
18:54 chromatic Coke?
18:55 Coke what should we do with tickets for old milestones on trac? leave them at the old milestone? auto-bump them to the next one? force a discussion to figure out where they really go?
18:55 Coke (I vote NO on prop 2.)
18:55 allison The default is auto-bump them to the next milestone
18:55 chromatic They do no good stuck to old milestones.
18:56 allison actually, it's impossible to keep them attached to a completed milestone
18:56 Coke if we auto-bump them, they are about as likely to get finished for the next release.
18:56 Infinoid At least they stay in our faces.
18:56 Coke ... if your face is full of things, you can't see anything.
18:56 particle- (force a discussion)++
18:56 allison right, so I've been reviewing them as I mark the milestone as completed
18:57 allison some of them I bump, some of them I unmark for a milestone
18:57 allison I though I added a step to the release manager guide on closing the milestone
18:57 Coke so, "review", then. note: we have 35/50 un-solved tickets on the 1.1 milestone.
18:58 Coke (many of which are deprecated items that need to be ripped out asap)
18:58 allison Coke: okay, anything critical should be kept for the next milestone
18:59 chromatic We're not very good at prioritizing our work in these weekly meetings.
18:59 allison that's what the weekly roadmap review is for
19:00 allison if "remove deprecated items" is a priority, it should be a roadmap item
19:00 Coke priority and roadmap are not necessarily the same thing.
19:02 chromatic Could we committers loosely agree to work on one high priority item every week?
19:02 Coke I cannot commit to that, no.
19:02 chromatic By "loosely agree" I mean "You can't tell volunteers what to do, but if we all did a little bit on this item, we'd make a lot of progress."
19:03 chromatic Depending on available time, energy, and resources, of course.
19:04 allison with your loose definition of "loosely agree" yes
19:04 particle- i can commit do devoting my parrot dev time to high priority items only.
19:05 chromatic Free electrons?  NotFound? Tene?  Whiteknight?
19:05 Tene Eh?
19:05 chromatic Infinoid?
19:05 allison how to make the priority for the week public?
19:05 Tene I have some time this week maybe.
19:05 chromatic I suppose we just pick one every week.  This week, removing deprecated items?
19:07 Infinoid I can't agree to any guaranteed tuits at the moment, switching jobs here.
19:07 allison chromatic: makes sense
19:07 allison Coke: from that list of tickets, were there 3 deprecated items you would especially like removed soon?
19:08 Coke perhaps the MMd one from six months ago.
19:08 Coke but no.
19:08 chromatic It's more like "If I have time and resources to work on Parrot this week, I will make ___ a priority."
19:08 Coke I have no rankings in particular.
19:09 allison chromatic: How about putting that on the top of the Parrot wiki?
19:09 chromatic Okay.
19:10 allison "If you have time and resources to work on Parrot this week, make removing deprecated items a priority."
19:10 allison or something
19:11 chromatic Other questions for discussion?
19:12 allison Who is closing out the milestone for 1.1?
19:12 particle- comment, for presenters/attendees of parrot vm workshop: https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/wiki/Parr​ot%20Virtual%20Machine%20Workshop%202009
19:13 particle- wiki's are never correct, but please try to make this wiki more correct
19:13 NotFound chromatic: I'm not sure how much time I can spend on parrot next weeks, I'll try.
19:15 fperrad put the weekly priority on the irc topic
19:15 allison okay, I'll close the milestone and move all tickets to 1.2 (I'll post a mailing list message on any questionable ones)
19:16 allison jkeenan wanted me to mention that tickets marked as ownership 'rurban' are available for reassignment
19:16 Coke on a related note, if you own a ticket and aren't going to do anything with it, give it up.
19:17 allison good point
19:17 allison have we hit roadmap review?
19:18 Coke (roadmap review) in an effort to kill https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/wiki/ParrotRoadmap, I opened tickets for all the roadmap items for 1.2
19:19 allison I just saw that, many thanks
19:19 Coke there are 3 roadmap items on 1.1 that were not closed out.
19:19 Coke (and not listed on ParrotRoadmap)
19:20 allison ah, we were only reviewing ParrotRoadmap
19:21 allison oh, the first two were rescheduled on the wiki page, but not changed on the tickets
19:21 allison (a good sign we need to get rid of the wiki page)
19:21 Coke #236, #237, #240
19:21 allison #236 was rescheduled to 1.4
19:21 allison changing now
19:23 allison I'm pretty sure #237 was landed a couple of releases ago
19:24 pmichaud #88 is close to landed -- just needs a final review.  (That one's mine anyway.)
19:25 allison #240 was landed last month, but kept the ticket as an ongoing task
19:25 Coke ongoing tasks should probably not have tickets.
19:25 allison probably not, but the ticket tracked which files had been reviewed
19:25 allison we could move that to a wiki page
19:26 Coke if there are files left to review, then it's not done. if it's something where it has to be done all over every so often...
19:26 allison the task is "review todo/skip tests"
19:26 allison we'll always have some todo/skip tests
19:27 pmichaud I think the original purpose of that ticket was to try to eliminate todo/skip before 1.0.  But that ended up being unrealistic.
19:27 allison it's a task of periodically reviewing them to see if they're still needed, remove as many as possible
19:27 chromatic It's a lot of busy work.
19:27 allison it's essentially the same thing as bug resolution
19:28 pmichaud I think the ticket can be eliminated.
19:28 particle- prepend [CAGE], remove milestone
19:28 allison technically, we should have a ticket to track each todo/skip test
19:28 Coke (meta tickets)--
19:28 allison one general ticket for all todo/skip tests isn't useful
19:28 particle- or, if removing ticket, add to cage cleaners wiki page
19:29 allison it's not a meta ticket, it's a ticket for the bug that meant we had to todo/skip the test
19:29 allison either a todo/skip is there because there's a bug it's avoiding, or the test should be removed
19:31 allison ah, it looks like the list of files in the ticket was created with a simple search of the t/ directory
19:31 Coke and even includes a pod file! whee. =-)
19:31 allison so, easily repeatable. I'll close the ticket.
19:32 allison Tene: you're listed as the owner of the PIR docs, did we finish that?
19:32 allison I remember marking it as landed in the wiki
19:32 Tene I have no idea.
19:33 pmichaud last time I looked I thought that pdd19 looked reasonably complete.
19:33 pmichaud if there are specific items that need doing, perhaps we need tickets for those specific ones.
19:33 allison okay, I'll close the general ticket
19:34 allison That brings us to the 1.2 roadmap items
19:34 allison - packfile pmcs (jonathan)
19:35 allison should we change the owner to bacek?
19:35 allison https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/504
19:37 jonathan allison: bacek would seem to be working on those at the moment.
19:37 allison okay, changed
19:38 allison - Clone and Modify in DynPMC VTABLE Initialization (chromatic) https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/528
19:38 allison any update?
19:38 allison and, should this stay as a milestone for 1.2?
19:39 chromatic I'll try to get it for 1.2.
19:39 chromatic I think the infrastructure is related to the vtable swap milestone too.
19:39 allison okay
19:40 allison - remove optional features from default config, refactor config probes https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/565
19:40 allison any updates? can we assign an owner for this task?
19:41 allison should we remove the task from the 1.2 roadmap?
19:42 allison I suspect that's a question for jim keenan, so will take it to the mailing list
19:42 allison - export conventions (cross hll) https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/566
19:43 allison what needs to be done here, and do we have an owner?
19:43 * Tene looks
19:44 allison The next two tasks seem to be connected to that one.
19:44 Tene wow, trac is slow
19:44 * Tene still waiting on 566 to load
19:44 allison - pdd31-hll interop https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/567
19:45 allison - hll interop https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/568
19:45 Tene export conventions is storing appropriate items in ::EXPORT::ALL
19:45 Tene iirc
19:46 allison I'll take the pdd31 task (launch it out of draft)
19:46 Tene I'm not sure which of those tickets it fits in, maybe this one, but we need to get library import/export into PCT
19:46 allison Tene: could you add details to the ticket?
19:46 Tene well, into a standard interface in compiler objects
19:47 Tene pmichaud would know better which ticket that goes in
19:47 Tene Also, we still haven' tbeen able to get rakud ointo .HLL 'Perl6'
19:47 allison the first one sounds like it is the ticket
19:47 Tene If we can't at least do that, that's a big problem
19:48 Tene And I've been the only person trying to work on that.  I'm still not sure what the problems are.
19:48 allison I got your message with the details there, I'll put that on my priority list for this week
19:48 Tene allison: that email was bogus, just ofund out.
19:48 Tene please ignore / delete it.
19:48 allison ah, okay
19:48 allison do you have updated info on the problem?
19:48 pmichaud I'll see if I can get library semantics into PCT this week.
19:48 Tene trying to work on it now with jonathan
19:49 pmichaud that's nicely high priority.
19:49 Tene but, no
19:50 allison okay
19:50 allison Should I put patrick/tene as owner of the HLL export conventions ticket?
19:50 allison or leave it unowned?
19:51 pmichaud I'm fine with any of those.
19:51 Tene I'm okay with it
19:51 allison trac should let me assign multiple owners
19:51 Tene yay firefox crashed
19:52 pmichaud a ticket with multiple owners doesn't have any :-)
19:52 allison going with pmichaud, with the understanding that it's dually owned)
19:52 allison pmichaud: yeah, probably true
19:52 allison okay, last roadmap item
19:53 allison - vtable swap (e.g. bignum) https://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/569
19:53 allison any updates? are we planning to do this for 1.2?
19:54 allison chromatic, should I assign you as owner?
19:54 Tene I really really want to get rakudo into a .HLL, so I can start really working on inter-hll library loading.
19:54 allison Tene: yes, I consider that a critical task for 1.2
19:54 Tene The library export stuff and maybe the PMC stuff are the only big issues, iirc
19:54 chromatic I'll try to get to vtable swap for 1.2, but I'm not sure if it or dynpmc vtable cloning will make it.  One probably will.  The other might.
19:55 allison yes, I imagine only one per release
19:55 allison is there a dependency ordering?
19:56 allison does one depend on the other?
19:56 chromatic No.
19:56 chromatic They may use similar APIs though and refactoring of the vtable functions.
19:57 allison okay, then which is simpler (since the first one you do will involve some API refactoring)?
19:57 chromatic Not sure.
19:57 allison which would you rather work on first?
19:57 chromatic Let me try dynpmc vtables first.
19:57 allison okay, I'll bump the other one to 1.3
19:58 allison that's it for the milestone review
19:58 allison I'm going to run through the rest of the roadmap wiki and convert it to tickets
19:58 allison it's too confusing to have two locations to look for the roadmap
20:00 Coke +1
20:00 pmichaud +1
20:02 allison sounds like that's a wrap. Thanks everybody!

20:04 Infinoid Can do.
20:04 Infinoid 11:35 < chromatic> allison?
20:04 Infinoid 11:35 < allison> Parrot:
20:04 Infinoid 11:35 < allison> - Gave Parrot talks at the SFO Linux user's group and LinuxFest Nortwest.
20:05 Infinoid 11:35 < allison> - Reviewed Partcl to collect a list of build problems, and fixed one.
20:05 Infinoid 11:35 < allison> - Made some changes to language shell generator based on experience giving the talk.
20:05 Infinoid 11:35 < allison> Pynie:
20:05 Infinoid 11:35 < allison> - Set up a google group mirror for pynie-dev list.
20:05 Infinoid 11:36 < allison> EOR
20:05 Infinoid 11:36  * Tene is here
20:05 Infinoid 11:36 < chromatic> barney?
20:05 Infinoid 11:37  * jhorwitz arrives late
20:05 Infinoid 11:37 < chromatic> I merged in some of the source file location cleanups.  SVN merge is not my friend.
20:05 Infinoid 11:37 < chromatic> I added a couple of optimizations to hash key lookups and Key STRINGification.  PGE should be ~5% faster, as is anything that uses hash STRING lookups.
20:05 Infinoid 11:38 < chromatic> I ponder the utility of a get_string_ro VTABLE entry, as creating COW STRING headers is surprisingly expensive amortized over all of our uses.  (Either that, or rewrite Parrot such that escape
20:05 Infinoid analysis is feasible.)
20:05 Infinoid 11:38 < chromatic> Coke?
20:05 Infinoid 11:38 < Coke> parrot - docs.parrot.org updated for 1.1
20:05 Infinoid 11:38 < Coke> partcl - minor updates (allison++), but still no build. attempted to recruit others (cotto++) for specific fixes.
20:05 Infinoid 11:38 < Coke> yapc - not going this year. :|

20:06 Infinoid 11:39 < cotto> Parrot:
20:06 Infinoid 11:39 < cotto> * worked with bacek++ on his PCT-based PMC parser
20:06 Infinoid 11:39 < cotto> * also went on a malformed PMC-fixing binge
20:06 Infinoid 11:39 < cotto> * took a stab at fixing partcl, will need more stabbing
20:06 Infinoid 11:39 < cotto> GSoC:
20:06 Infinoid 11:39 < cotto>   - nobody packages decnumber as a shared library
20:06 Infinoid 11:39 < cotto> * darbelo started a Google Code project to host this, added me and whiteknight
20:06 Infinoid 11:39 < cotto> * I started a Google Group (http://groups.google.com/group/decnum-dynpmcs) for discussion (feel free to join)

20:06 Infinoid 11:40 < chromatic> Infinoid?
20:06 Infinoid 11:40 < Infinoid> * Made c2str stop using Math::BigInt. This sped up c2str by over 50%, or about 10 seconds, and sped up my overall build times by 8%.
20:06 Infinoid 11:40 < Infinoid> * I later discovered that the hash value it was computing wasn't used anyway, so I ended up ripping out even more code.
20:06 Infinoid 11:40 < Infinoid> * That ripped out code is in a separate commit (r38357), and can be easily reverted if someone wants to use it later.
20:06 Infinoid 11:41 < Infinoid> * Finally found a workaround for the libgmp "ohnoes it crashed" popup dialog I was getting during configure on mingw.
20:06 Infinoid 11:41 < Infinoid> * Worked with he++ for a couple of final fixes for netbsd-alpha.
20:07 Infinoid 11:41 < Infinoid> * Worked with LylePerl++ to find a HLL realclean bug on mingw, updated create_language.pl with the resulting fix.
20:07 Infinoid 11:41 < Infinoid> * Some patch mongering and bug triaging.

20:07 Infinoid 11:41 < jhorwitz> getting back on track.
20:07 Infinoid 11:41 < jhorwitz> fixing random mod_parrot bugs
20:07 Infinoid 11:41 < jhorwitz> running into lots of issues precompiling mod_perl6 due to how mod_parrot registers its classes.  had some  discussion in trac w/ pmichaud that i need to follow up on.  for now i've worked around the problem.
