19:31 Util Hello
19:36 cotto anyone else here?
19:37 NotFound joined #parrotsketch
19:37 Util Perhaps we need to float another query of what day/time is best for everyone?
19:37 NotFound Late hello
19:37 Util Hi, NotFound
19:38 cotto I suspect that's not the root problem.  Parrot's been quiet over the last couple months, so not a lot of coordination has been needed.
19:39 not_gerd joined #parrotsketch
19:39 * not_gerd has a question
19:39 cotto not_gerd: go ahead
19:40 not_gerd I already aked about it in #parrot - currently, parrot has optional libffi bindings - but NQP actually bundles dyncall
19:40 not_gerd might be a good idea to make that available to all parrot languages...
19:40 not_gerd ^asked
19:41 cotto It's a better option from a platform support perspective.
19:41 not_gerd however, I don't know what the policy for including 3rd-party code is - as far as I can see, all of that has been moved out of the repository...
19:42 Coke I think there's still a place for bundled stuff.
19:43 Util not_gerd: You do not have to ship something to provide support for it, as long as Parrot also provides introspection for a host language to see whether Parrot was compiled --without-foo.
19:44 NotFound Ideally, we shouldn't care how NCI is provided, just that is available.
19:45 cotto I'd like to see a branch to experiment with dyncall-based nci.
19:45 Util The packagers can take responsibility for bundling certain libraries (and compiling Parrot to use them), or not bundling (and compiling Parrot to not use them).
19:45 not_gerd Rakudo does not build without NCI support, so if Parrot does not bundle it, NQP will have to...
19:46 cotto which gives us a good use case
19:48 cotto not_gerd: +1
19:49 Util +1
19:50 cotto not_gerd: does that answer your question?
19:51 not_gerd yes, it does...
19:53 cotto ok.  any other questions?
19:55 Coke just wanted to give benabik++ a shout out for resurrecting partcl(PIR)
19:56 NotFound And finding a nasty bug while on it.
