19:30 cotto hello
19:30 moritz \o
19:31 alvis hello
19:31 benabik o/
19:31 NotFound Hola
19:32 cotto late report: am working with osuosl to upgrade parrot.org to drupal 7 and help alvis resurrect parrotbug.  Apart from that, very busy.
19:33 cotto How's this week been?  We have both a release and a branch that wants merging post-release.
19:34 NotFound I lacked the time to test the upcoming winxed additions, so the snapshot will not be updated.
19:36 cotto alvis: do you have any concerns about the release?
19:36 alvis not yet. :)
19:36 alvis i'm on schedule and will start after #ps
19:37 cotto great
19:37 cotto Make sure to post to parrot-dev when it's safe to push again.
19:37 alvis ok, i will
19:38 cotto I'll review bacek++'s branch today, hopefully before you're done with the release.
19:38 moritz fwiw I've done a test run of rakudo on parrot/master today, all tests passed
19:38 cotto moritz: thanks.  That helps.
19:39 cotto what platform?
19:39 moritz linux 64bit
19:39 * benabik starts up a fullest on OS X
19:41 cotto Is Rakudo ready for the branch to be merged?  I saw that it required a patch.
19:41 moritz well, we can apply that patch easily
19:41 moritz with it all tests passed on that branch as well
19:41 moritz so +1 to merging the branch after the release
19:42 NotFound +1
19:42 cotto great.  I'll make sure to let #perl6 know too.
19:43 benabik Rakudo releases tend to based on parrot releases...
19:43 moritz the patch is now in a rakudo branch too (conveniently also named take_recont)
19:43 benabik I'd prefer to delay the merge until after their release.  (That way I don't have to keep rebasing that patch until they update.)
19:44 cotto benabik: that's the plan.
19:44 cotto It's too close to merge anything other than bugfixes or documentation updates.
19:44 bluescreen joined #parrotsketch
19:44 cotto s/close/close to the release/
19:45 benabik cotto: Waiting for the Parrot release is obvious.  Waiting for the Rakudo release is less so, but my preference.
19:45 cotto d'oh.  misread "their" as "the".
19:46 moritz benabik: not necessary, IMHO
19:46 cotto I'm +1 for merging.
19:46 benabik It would make my life marginally easier to delay it for a week.  But no serious objection.
19:47 benabik I'm too used to my auto-build scripts that update Parrot/NQP/Rakudo all to master, and when Rakudo doesn't build on Parrot master it's more work for me.  :-D
19:50 cotto moritz: is there anyone in particular who needs to know when the branch gets merged or can it be anyone with a commit bit?
19:52 cotto message to parrot-dev sent
19:52 moritz cotto: anyone with a commit bit would do
19:52 cotto great\
19:54 cotto Is there anything else that needs attention?
19:56 cotto Great.  Let's call it a wrap.
19:59 * moritz calls it "a wrap"
19:59 cotto now I'm hungry
