19:30 cotto hello
19:30 alvis hello
19:31 benabik hi
19:32 cotto How's this week been?
19:32 contingencyplan joined #parrotsketch
19:33 cotto I like what dukeleto++ has been doing with CI.
19:35 Util dukeleto++
19:37 Util cotto: busy!
19:37 cotto same here
19:37 cotto I had a todo list that I was excited about, but didn't even get to the first item.
19:38 Util I fixed just *one* thing, and uncovered 4 more things that either need fixing, or deserve attention.
19:39 Util I am not discouraged to have found them, just to not have time to jump on them all.
19:39 Util all: is anyone submitting Parrot or Perl 6 talks for YAPC::NA::2012?
19:40 Coke I probably will.
19:40 Coke esp. if jnthn isn't going.
19:42 * dukeleto waves
19:43 * dukeleto is also working on a visualization that answers the question "what does the parrot community look like?"
19:44 Util dukeleto: cool!
19:45 * Util is pitching a Perl 5 talk, and a Perl-6-backported-to-5 lightning talk on automated code modernization.
19:45 Coke like this: http://trac.parrot.org/parrot/wiki/ParrotFaces ??
19:46 * lucian loves CI
19:48 dukeleto Coke: no, like a high-level picture of what tools we use and how they work together
19:49 cotto I look forward to that.
19:53 dukeleto i am serious about getting any code we care about running under CI
19:53 dukeleto otherwise, bitrot is inevitable and it is a just a waste of time
19:53 dukeleto gsoc is coming up
19:53 dukeleto the application period started, i think
19:54 dukeleto i can help with it, but i need someone else to own/drive gsoc
19:54 cotto Thanks for mentioning that.  We need to decide where to go with that.
19:54 benabik Personally, I'd really like GSoC to exist so I can apply.  :-D
19:54 cotto I definitely don't have the time to do more than mentoring, if that.
19:54 dukeleto i am buying a house and getting married in the next few months. Just started a new job. Time is a fleeting resource...
19:55 dukeleto cotto: how do you feel about having a parrot dev summit at LFNW ?
19:56 cotto If nobody here volunteers, we can put out the call on parrot-dev for an org admin.
19:56 cotto conf season really snuck up on me this year
19:56 dukeleto cotto: there needs to be a meatspace parrot dev meetup/hackathon
19:56 cotto yes
19:56 dukeleto cotto: it has been way too long
19:56 Coke You should ping the parrot-dev list for a GSOC volunteer, yes.
19:57 dukeleto cotto: are you planning on going to LFNW?
19:57 dukeleto Coke: would you like to send that email?
19:57 cotto hadn't planned, but hadn't thought about it either
19:57 cotto it was pretty good last year
19:57 Coke dukeleto: sure. I'm definitely not volutneering to run GSOC this year, so an email is an easy out. ;)
19:58 dukeleto Coke: wfm
19:58 cotto my only concern about having a parrot meeting there is that I'm not certain how many people would be able to make it
19:58 cotto coke+
19:58 cotto coke++
19:58 dukeleto cotto: http://leto.net/tmp/parrot_community_draft.png
19:58 dukeleto cotto: well, if both of us are going to be at a conf, we might as well call it a parrot dev summit
19:58 dukeleto cotto: and try to get a few others
19:59 Coke LFNW, ok. What about YAPC::NA?
20:00 cotto same response as lfnw; hadn't thought about it either way
20:01 Coke I hope to be at YAPC::NA this year, but am not planning on any parrot things atm.
20:02 * dukeleto will probably be at yapc::na
20:03 dukeleto any feedback on my community diagram would be appreciated
20:06 dukeleto feels like parrot development is waning
20:06 dukeleto we have no focus
20:06 dukeleto jim isn't around to whip us into action
20:06 cotto I wish I could disagree.
20:06 Coke I have been hearing about M0 for some time, but don't see a lot of driving to get there.
20:07 dukeleto Coke: would you like to help? there is a single "m0" branch now instead of a spec branch and an implementation branch
20:07 cotto The next direction I want to move in is getting 6model into core as the foundation for Parrot's object model, but time is tight.
20:07 Coke I have no idea what is involved with helping, and like you, am short on tuits.
20:08 cotto in addition to the smaller requests that moritz++ made last week
20:08 dukeleto Coke: yeah, i feel that there is a failure on my part to make it easy to hack on M0
20:10 Coke dukeleto: i'm not a c hacker, so don't fel that way on my account.
20:12 dukeleto Coke: sure. But our tests are written in Perl and docs written in POD, etc...
20:12 cotto as is the more complete M0 interp and assembler
20:12 cotto s/is/are/

20:20 cotto Alright.  Let's call it a wrap.
