22:06 alvis I apologize for missing #ps, but I had to attend my daughter's graduation in Oklahoma City. Regardless, I am posting my report today -- a day lot (and, perhaps, a dollar short) -- as matter of ensuring it is logged.
22:06 alvis What I did:
22:07 alvis * Completed and merged 'ayardley/READMEs' which updated Parrot's 'README' files to 'README.pod' files.
22:07 alvis
22:07 alvis * Closed a few issues.
22:07 alvis * Started minimal subclass of 'Pod::Simple' to allow the '=begin PIR ... =end PIR' et. al., command paragraphs to flow through to pod. (Note: I'm experiencing a few, erh, confusing, problems with this 'un)
22:07 alvis
22:07 alvis * Started a local branch to integrate 'docs/ops' back into the repo.
22:08 alvis * Started a local branch to, significantly, update the documentation of the op codes.
22:08 alvis
22:08 alvis Note: As it stands right now, our op code documentation is ... poor.
22:08 alvis And the manner in which we present this information is also ...
22:08 alvis poor.
22:08 alvis
22:08 alvis Effective use of Parrot requires the extensive use of Parrot's
22:08 alvis opcodes. Unfortunately, this is not, at all, clear. In fact, we
22:08 alvis don't even inform them of this. Moreover, there is far, far too
22:08 alvis much institutional knowledge "locked up" in the use of our opcodes
22:08 alvis and in our presentation of how to use our opcodes
22:08 alvis
22:08 alvis This branch will, hopefully, rectify this deficit.
22:08 alvis
22:08 alvis * Started a new, local branch to update, extensively, 'docs/faq.pod'.
22:09 alvis * Started a new, local branch to update, extensively, 'docs/compiler_faq.pod'.
22:09 alvis
