19:30 masak joined #parrotsketch
19:30 cotto Howdy
19:31 moritz hi
19:31 masak hi
19:31 alvis hello
19:32 cotto How's this week been?
19:32 NotFound joined #parrotsketch
19:32 NotFound Hola
19:33 cotto nqp was broken and (afaik) unbroken, which is better than not getting unbroken but worse than not getting broken in the first place
19:34 moritz we had the trac -> github migration, and the resulting outdatedness of lots of docs
19:34 cotto yes.  I'm very happy with that, though we'll need to do a pass over the docs to clean them up
19:34 Coke alester++ for driving the automated migration.
19:34 cotto alester++
19:34 cotto and github++
19:35 masak alester++
19:35 * dukeleto didn't miss #ps!
19:35 alvis and mortiz++ # for creating the github-links branch to update trac refs
19:37 cotto Is there anything that needs special attention this week?
19:38 * moritz has a question (low priority)
19:38 cotto moritz: go ahead
19:39 moritz can somebody please summarize the state of JIT/Lorito?
19:39 moritz like, what is already, what still needs doing, and who's doing it?
19:39 cotto moritz: ok
19:39 cotto It's been stalled for the last few months.
19:40 dukeleto moritz: current status is stalled for lack of tuits
19:40 cotto I see getting 6model into Parrot as a prerequisite to the Lorito transition, so that what I've been planning.
19:40 dukeleto moritz: i agree, cotto++ and I need to make it easier for others to take the baton
19:41 cotto 6model as a core Parrot thing will mean a substantial overhaul of the object model, especially doing so in a way that keeps Parrot useful for Rakudo.
19:42 cotto Work on the M0 spec and implementations can continue, but will eventually block on 6model in Parrot.
19:45 * masak is happy to see Parrot take this path
19:46 moritz well, 6model itself isn't much of an object model, just a storage mechanism
19:48 cotto It's still a significant internal change.
19:50 moritz aye
19:51 cotto At some point, we will need a sane language that compiles down to both M0 and C.  Winxed would be a nice choice, but it wasn't written with multiple backends in mind.
19:51 cotto I've been calling it "mole".
19:53 cotto moritz: does that answer your question to your satisfaction?
19:57 cotto I'll assume so.
19:57 cotto any other questions?
19:58 alvis yes. what about the release scheduled for today?
19:58 cotto that snuck up on me
19:58 alvis i think it did everyone.
19:58 cotto looks like whiteknight is on the hook
19:59 cotto I'll send him a reminder about it.
20:00 cotto done
20:00 cotto alvis: thanks for catching that
20:00 alvis it was PerlJam this morning who caught it.
20:00 cotto perljam++
20:01 cotto I'll make sure that someone gets the release out.
20:02 cotto any other questions or issues?
20:03 cotto Let's call it a wrap.
20:03 cotto Thanks, all.
