03:11 kid51 kid51's report
03:11 kid51 * DONE
03:11 kid51 * Last reported two weeks ago.  Since then:
03:11 kid51 * Closed TT #1372 (Getopt::Obj)
03:11 kid51 * Closed TT #1412 (running-make-test)
03:11 kid51 * Closed TT #1393 (intermittent failuers in src/gc/api.c)
03:11 kid51 * Other small fixes to tests
03:11 kid51 * TO DO
03:12 kid51 * My remaining TTs generally fall into the category of "We'll close them when someone makes a decision in the future"; nothing urgent.
03:12 kid51 * Don't have much to do in Parrot these days, so have turned my attention back to Perl 5 OS projects
03:12 kid51 * THOUGHTS
03:12 kid51 * As others have suggested on #parrot, we should start making plans for our presence at YAPC::NA in Columbus.
03:12 kid51 * But I think our plans should be shaped to dovetail with whatever pmichaud et al have in mind for debut of Rakudo*.
03:12 kid51 * (kid51 would love to go to a workshop session where people are guided through "10 things that are the same as in Perl 5; 10 things that are different.")
03:12 kid51 EOR

18:49 cotto_work #did:
18:49 cotto_work * modified/applied patch from austin++ to fix pbc_merge
18:49 cotto_work * pbc_merge is now part of the PCT build process
18:49 cotto_work * all PCT's tests continue to pass
18:49 cotto_work * started hacking on ops_pct branch (PCT-based ops compiler to replace ops2c)
18:49 cotto_work * synced branch with trunk (over the course of more than an hour (svn--))
18:49 cotto_work * opsc (the ops compiler) builds but its tests are broken: http://nopaste.snit.ch/19522
18:49 cotto_work * got whiteknight++ riled up about the *pow* and *bigint* VTABLE functions as I was about to close TT #866
18:49 cotto_work * more comments in that ticket would be welcome, especially from our esteemed architect
18:49 cotto_work #will do:
18:49 cotto_work * either get pmichaud to tell me what I'm doing wrong with PCT::HLLCompiler or figure it out myself
18:49 cotto_work #blockers:
18:49 cotto_work * see above
18:49 cotto_work #closed TTs:
18:49 cotto_work * 2 pbc_merge tickets (#1425, #1429)

20:26 allison Last week:
20:26 allison - Prepared Debian and Ubuntu packages for Parrot 2.0. Needed substantial updates for additions in Parrot, and standards changes in Debian. Uploaded them to Ubuntu test system in launchpad (pass with flying colors), tested to make sure I could compile a language from them, and submitted them to our Debian/Ubuntu mentors for review.
20:26 allison - Developed a mini language 'camle' (not related to 'camel', it's for a class assignment) in nqp-fx with distutils.pir.
20:26 allison Next week:
20:26 allison - Working on Pynie cleanup/port to nqp-rx.
20:26 allison - Preparing PyCon talk on Pynie.
20:26 allison - Will continue working my way through the AllisonTasklist wiki page. Feel free to push tasks on my stack.

20:31 chromatic Hello.
20:31 mikehh hi there
20:31 whiteknight hello
20:31 darbelo Hola.
20:32 NotFound joined #parrotsketch
20:32 Tene I did absolutely nothing.  Life is busy.  I don't expect to have any time available.  :(
20:32 Util Hello
20:32 NotFound hola
20:32 chromatic Let's review our goals for last week.
20:33 chromatic bacek's been working hard on GC encapsulation.
20:33 chromatic What's the status there?
20:33 mikehh part1 commited, part2 testing
20:33 whiteknight he got one branch merged, another painfully close
20:33 chromatic Is there a merge point in the next couple of days?
20:33 chromatic How many parts are there?
20:33 mikehh yes
20:34 whiteknight probably merging part 2 todayish, if testing pans out
20:34 whiteknight early indicators are positive
20:35 Coke joined #parrotsketch
20:36 chromatic Should I wait to make other changes to the GC until after the merge?
20:36 Coke I have a late report: working on eliminating tools/dev/ccflags.pl to avoid invoking perl every time we compile something. side-effect; lots of warnings cleanups.
20:36 whiteknight yes please
20:37 * japhb is here late and intermittently, sorry
20:38 chromatic How about the bit ops/pmcs/vtable deprecations?
20:38 chromatic How are we doing on those?
20:38 darbelo ENOTDONE
20:38 whiteknight just got some more info in a ticket, going to start a branch soon
20:39 whiteknight then it's grip it, rip it, and snip it
20:39 chromatic go go go
20:39 chromatic Were there any other goals from last week?
20:40 chromatic No?  Okay.
20:40 chromatic Let's pick goals for this week, knowing that 2.1 comes out next Tuesday.
20:41 Coke I'm going to try to finish rm_cflags, and perhaps eliminate the remaining recursive make invocations.
20:42 whiteknight those vtables and dynops are key. I think we can get them ripped out quick once the work starts
20:42 chromatic Can we have that merged by Saturday?
20:42 Coke are the vtables covered by existing deprecation notices?
20:42 Coke I thought we just expanded the scope of that.
20:42 whiteknight I'll shoot for Saturday, yes
20:42 whiteknight they are deprecated, yes
20:43 darbelo whiteknight: I can give a hand there if run into tuit shortage.
20:43 chromatic Let's all chip in!
20:43 whiteknight creating branch now
20:44 mikehh +1
20:45 chromatic Any other priorities?
20:46 whiteknight test, test, test
20:46 mikehh working on it
20:47 whiteknight mikehh++
20:47 chromatic Are there specific things that need additional testing?
20:47 whiteknight the new ImageIO PMC
20:48 chromatic Volunteers?
20:49 mikehh do we need additional tests for that?
20:49 whiteknight I'll see what I can do with it
20:50 chromatic Excellent.
20:50 chromatic Anyone have any blockers?
20:51 NotFound TT #1428 was blocking me, but I think is fixed
20:53 chromatic Okay.  Let's go to questions.
20:53 chromatic cotto_work, are you here?
20:54 whiteknight ENOCOTTOWORK
20:55 * darbelo q1n
20:55 chromatic go ahead, darbelo.
20:55 darbelo Austin has sent a CLA, can we give him a bit?
20:55 whiteknight +1
20:56 Util +1
