13:09 kid51 kid51's report
13:09 kid51 In last several weeks have reviewed some older TT tickets.  Resolved some.
13:10 kid51 In other cases, I cc-ed or msg-ed various Parrot devs for a consultation.  If I poked you, please respond.
13:10 kid51 Blocking on:
13:10 kid51 http://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/1393
13:11 kid51 Why does a particular test abort (SIGNAL 6) when run thru a test harness but not when run by itself?
13:11 kid51 And why only on one OS (Linux/i386) and not on another (Darwin/PPC)?
13:12 kid51 Being unable to get a clean PASS on 'make test' due to this prevents me from evaluating other TTs, e.g., JimmyZ's patches.
13:12 kid51 EOR
13:28 kid51 Question for discussion:  What steps are we going to take between now and end of January to actualize goals set at recent online summit for preparation for Rakudo* release in 2Q?
13:28 * kid51 goes to $job

19:28 Coke joined #parrotsketch
19:38 Coke Done: (parrot)
19:38 Coke - Makefile cleanup - trunk - break and reconstruct build deps using tools/dev/checkdepend.pl
19:38 Coke - branches/one_make - working on eliminating recursive make
19:38 Coke - branches/one_make - working on splitting out single makefile into
19:38 Coke includes.
19:38 Coke - PIRC
19:38 Coke - branches/pirc_config - add a --pirc option to select between
19:38 Coke pirc/imcc; it gets as far as #defining a variable that someone else
19:38 Coke could use to determine which imcc to build with. Any takers?
19:38 Coke - Ticket cleanup.
19:38 Coke Closed TT#'s: 1343, 231, 982, 307, 1277
19:38 Coke Opened TT#'s: 1398, 1387
19:38 Coke Primary focus right now is makefile cleanup:
19:38 Coke * eliminate recursive make, but also:
19:38 Coke * split up makefile into more managable chunks
19:38 Coke * improve and validate dependencies
19:38 Coke * move build steps out of config/ and into the make process as possible
19:38 Coke .
19:41 Coke Also, JimmyZ sent in a CLA; did he get 2 votes and a mentor?
19:48 mikehh JimmyZ's had some interesting patches, although I think they needed to be broken down a bit (a bit too much in  a given patch)
19:49 mikehh I am quite happy to be a secondary mentor - not nthe primary one though
19:55 Coke mikehh: I'd be happy to hear build feedback on the one_make branch; I am pretty sure there are build deps missing at the moment.
19:59 mikehh Coke: I ran some tests on it - make -j corevm has a couple of problems - looking at it
