17:55 mikehh What I did since my last report:
17:55 mikehh * building and testing parrot on amd64/i386, with gcc/g++, with and without --optimize
17:55 mikehh * some branch testing
17:55 mikehh * some fixes

17:55 mikehh * testing and fixing
17:55 mikehh * investigate gc some more
17:56 mikehh .eor

18:24 cotto_work * figure out what's broken about --hash-seed
18:24 cotto_work * keep reviewing bubaflub's commits

18:29 cotto_work HELO
18:29 NotFound hola
18:29 mikehh hi, anything happening
18:31 cotto_work mikehh, we'll find out.  I suspect it may be a short meeting.
18:32 mikehh allison won't be here and I haven't seen chromatic for a copuple of days
18:34 mikehh BTW condolences to allison
18:35 NotFound What happened?

18:38 Coke joined #parrotsketch
18:38 mikehh hi Coke
18:38 Coke ~~
18:41 Coke my report: partcl-nqp. parrot build dependencies. Goal: make pirc an option before 2.0
18:41 mikehh +1 on pirc
18:42 Coke in fact, I'm about to make pirc build ./pirc by default so that we can at least make sure it builds on all our platforms.
18:42 Coke s/make pirc/make parrot/
18:43 cotto_work great idea
18:43 mikehh it builds for me with gcc but fails with g++
18:44 NotFound I can take a look at the g++ part
18:44 Coke NotFound: ok. I just broke the build for you, then. =-)
18:44 Coke TIA.
18:44 NotFound No problem, I'm almost only working with winxed this week.
18:45 mikehh I am looking into that also, although the failures are in pir.y
18:45 Coke I have a patch going that gets us from Configure --pirc==pirc to building with -DPARROT_USE_PIRC or something. IWBNI someone with some C fu could take that and then conditionally make compreg "PIR" be pirc.
18:46 Coke That patch should be safe to apply now except that a) it doesn't really do anything and b) generates some config noise because it has no test.
18:47 Coke I was kind of surprised to find pirc is a standalone executable. I don't think that when we take it over, we're going to want a standalone, are we?
18:48 mikehh no I don't think so - it is supposed to be a replacement for imcc
18:53 Coke I'll create a branch with the configure step tonight for someone else to build on.
18:53 Coke there's really not a lot of people here this week, so we'll plan on an better meeting next week. Enjoy the holidays. =-)
18:55 mikehh well seasons greetings to everyone - cul8r
18:56 cotto_work sounds good
