19:30 cotto - lots of possible ways to improve Parrot (see parrot-dev)
19:30 cotto - in response, alivs++ has already volunteered to be our documentation owner after a brief 9-year break from Parrot
19:30 cotto * VMIL workshop at SPLASH
19:30 cotto - cool ideas to steal
19:30 cotto - 2 Dart talks

19:31 cotto hello\
19:31 benabik yo
19:31 NotFound Hola
19:33 benabik late report:  DID: Updated documentation for opcode and oplib PMCs.  Discovered I have enough information to do disassembly in Winxed.  BLOCKERS: $THESIS, @TESTS
19:33 benabik (At least I think that was this week.  I lose track)
19:33 cotto How's this week been?  Did anything explode or need special attention?
19:33 cotto (other TODO: review green_threads)
19:36 cotto I guess not.
19:36 whiteknight joined #parrotsketch
19:36 whiteknight hello
19:37 cotto dukeleto is at Git Together and probably won't make it.
19:38 cotto In my message to parrot-dev about what I got from the mentor summit, I mentioned a handful of smallish projects that could benefit Parrot.
19:39 cotto These include investigating the bot that pdf.js uses, looking into stealing dddash.ep.io for Parrot and doing some analysis on past GSoC and GCI results.
19:40 cotto Do those look interesting to any of you?
19:44 nine Interesting? All of them... but the scarce time I have will be best invested in green_threads.
19:44 cotto same here, but for other projects
19:47 cotto It sounds like I'm not the only one shy on tuits.
19:48 benabik We're having a tuit recession.
19:48 benabik We need a bailout.
19:55 cotto seems to be just us and the crickets in here
19:55 cotto I'll keep trying to find people to do things or at least make sure they don't get dropped.
19:56 cotto anything else?
19:57 bubaflub are we getting a team of people together to work on documentation?  i'd love to help out
19:57 cotto bubaflub: talk to alvis.  I was hoping he'd be here, though I neglected to invite him.
19:58 bubaflub cotto: sounds good
19:58 cotto We need to spend some time deciding on the overall structure.  I'd like to consider putting everything in a github wiki (which is also a repo), but want to hash the idea out.
20:04 cotto anything else?
20:10 cotto Let's call it a wrap.
