20:31 mikehh * branch testing and fixes

20:31 mikehh What I intend to do in the next week:
20:31 mikehh * testing and fixing
20:31 mikehh .eor
20:31 mikehh hi all
20:31 cotto_work kid51: sure.  was away for a minute
20:31 whiteknight hello
20:32 plobsing hi
20:32 cotto_work How'd we do this week.  It seemed lighter than normal commit-wise.
20:32 * mikehh got a phone call just as I was gettin' ready
20:33 mikehh mostly by bacek++
20:33 cotto_work our goals were:
20:33 cotto_work GOAL 1: discuss roadmap goals on parrot-dev (team leads)
20:33 cotto_work GOAL 2: merge branches, clean up (all)
20:33 cotto_work GOAL 3: work on llvm probes for the opsc_llvm branch (bacek, all)
20:33 whiteknight I don't know about any branches that merged
20:34 whiteknight lots and lots of GSoC-related activity
20:34 cotto_work whiteknight: I don't think there were any big ones.
20:34 cotto_work GSoC is looking great so far.
20:35 cotto_work We've already had at least two prospective students drop by #parrot.
20:35 whiteknight I've seen at least a dozen
20:36 whiteknight including existing community members who indicated they may apply
20:36 mikehh yeah, quite a few
20:38 * lucian waves
20:38 NotFound Hola
20:38 cotto_work roadmap discussion was lacking on parrot-dev
20:40 cotto_work Are there any comments on that or on the past week in general?  We don't have any questions queued, so it might be a quick meeting.
20:41 kid51 There was a considerable amount of work done in branches (e.g., opsc_llvm) and in projects on top of Parrot (e.g., Rosella) ...
20:41 kid51 ... but little activity in master and no significant change in number of Trac tickets outstanding.
20:42 kid51 We have had postings on parrot-dev concerning 2 of our 3 roadmap goals for 3.3 ...
20:42 kid51 ... but we could still use one from the people working on IMCC refactor.
20:42 mikehh I started to get rid of warnings in the build, but $work intervened, will try and finish that this week
20:42 plobsing my view of the imcc work is that it has been stalled out for too long on a large-scoped branch that has GC issues that have yet to be correctly diagnosed. My prefered approach would be to get as much as possible back into master and abandon the rest.
20:43 kid51 plobsing: Can you and whiteknight consult with each other and post a progress note to that thread on parrot-dev?
20:43 whiteknight kid51: sure, we can put together a status report
20:43 cotto_work thanks
20:43 kid51 That way, we can formulate a more tightly-scoped roadmap goal that we can carry over to 3.6 (july)
20:45 mikehh there seemed to be a bit of work on lorito etc, how's that going
20:46 cotto_work The spec has a number of holes.  The best way to flush them out at this point is to try to implement it and see what has yet to be specified.
20:47 kid51 Lorito:  Who is working on it?  Who is not working on it who could be asked to help out?
20:48 cotto_work It's been me, atrodo and dukeleto
20:48 cotto_work I've also gotten some input from plobsing.
20:50 cotto_work Anyone with a pair of eyes is welcome to dive in.
20:50 kid51 cotto_work: Since getting something ready for 3.3 was a roadmap goal, please feel free to draft others into this effort.
20:50 kid51 bbial
20:51 lucian cotto_work: don't discriminate
20:52 lucian pirates are expected to have lower than average number of eyes
20:52 * lucian shuts up
20:53 cotto_work lucian: pirates are welcome as well
20:53 cotto_work Does anyone have a question?
20:53 lucian i have a few lorito questions, but probably more appropriate for #parrot
20:53 cotto_work lucian: sure.  They'll be welcome there.
