17:52 alvis * Revise upd_copyrights.pl to conform with the comments set out in issue
17:52 alvis #719
17:52 alvis * Complete wgrep.winxed options (e.g., '-n' add number lines to output)
17:52 alvis * Complete Chapter 01 of vmspec
17:52 alvis * Start Chapter 02 of vmspec

19:23 NotFound joined #parrotsketch
19:35 kid51 Is the meeting still supposed to start at 1930?
19:35 cotto yup
19:36 cotto also, hi
19:36 NotFound Hola
19:37 * kid51 looks for people who can write some documentation of C function in src/platform/generic/dl.c and src/pmc/stringbuilder.pmc, so that 2 codingstd tests once again pass
19:37 cotto doesn't sound too hairy
19:38 kid51 just run 'make nocritic_codetest' and you'll see what has to be done
19:38 NotFound Function level doc in platform/xxx/*.c is highly redundant
19:40 kid51 Well, I could not locate suitable equivalents there.  3 functions added in an old patch that dukeleto recently applied -- but they lacked docs
19:40 NotFound Maybe we must just put "See generic..." in most of them.
19:40 kid51 stringbuilder.pmc failure is more recent; some new pmc added in last week
19:40 NotFound I'll look at it.
19:41 kid51 Thanks.
19:45 cotto any questions or issues the week?
19:52 Coke Normal kvetchy question about elections.
19:53 Coke sounds like debian will (eventually) be happy.
19:53 Coke glad to see (any) progress on m0
19:53 cotto same here
19:54 Coke how many mentors do we have potentially? I know me, whiteknight, kid51, and dukeleto. (though 2 of them are admins and I'm not sure if they're mentoring also)
19:54 Coke (for GSOC)
19:56 benabik joined #parrotsketch
19:59 kid51 I don't really have the technical expertise in any of the subject areas I reviewed, so I would probably be better as a backup admin
19:59 kid51 ... which I have been in the past and which has meant that I really had to do ... nothing ;-)
19:59 cotto There are some proposals I'd be down with mentoring
20:00 kid51 I will try to re-review the proposals and score them if I get a chance
20:01 benabik I'd offer to mentor, but I don't think that's technically possible.
20:02 cotto benabik: even if you could, that'd be quite a time commitment
20:04 cotto do we have slot allocations yet?
20:04 NotFound I'm short of free time, jusr can help occassionally with winxed related tasks.
20:05 Coke benabik: students may not mentor.
20:07 cotto so, that's settlex
20:07 cotto *settled
20:07 Coke cotto: not yet
20:12 * lucian is willing to mentor python/js/java projects
20:13 lucian so from the proposals, i'd be willing to mentor the Jaesop one if whiteknight doesn't want it
20:14 cotto istr that he's interested in multiple projects
20:15 cotto We'll work it out so that everyone who's mentoring is mentoring something of interest to that person.
20:15 lucian thb i don't really have the skills to mentor anything else, i'm not even sure i'm qualified for this :)
20:16 NotFound lucian: I can help with that
20:17 lucian NotFound: as it was during my GSoC, that would be helpful :)
20:28 cotto the bug idea seems to be that we need to make sure GSoC get some love, especially in the form of mentors
20:28 cotto *big idea
20:30 cotto Coke: the election needs to happen, so thanks for bringing that up.  I'm not sure what our previous lack of elections implies as far as what PaFo will need to do.
20:30 cotto Coke++
20:37 PerlJam does PaFo not have many GSoC mentors?
20:38 Coke at least 4 ish.
20:42 cotto We need to get mentors and projects matched up
20:54 cotto any other questions?
21:02 Coke is rakudo happy with parrot?
21:04 PerlJam Coke: better ask pmichaud and jnthn that question :)
21:04 Coke don't need an answer right now.
21:21 cotto Let's call it a wrap.
21:22 benabik BLT!
