00:33 kid51 kid51's pre-report
00:33 kid51 * On vacation this week, but at #parrotsketch time, will probably be in transit at YAPC::NA::2012 in Madison.
00:33 kid51 * Poked at https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/512, but that mainly led to other code cleanup in the the forest of modules underlying tools/build/pmc2c.pl:
00:33 kid51 ** https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/787: Parrot::Pmc2c::Object no longer needed.
00:33 kid51 ** https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/789: Parrot::Pmc2c::Attribute can be refactored so as to be eliminated.
00:33 kid51 ** https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/790: Parrot::Pmc2c::MULTI can be refactored so as to be eliminated.
00:33 kid51 ** Intend to merge the 3 branches above into master after #ps, assuming no objection.  See tickets for the names of their respective branches.
00:34 kid51 * Also have begun writing POD for Parrot::Pmc2c::Emitter and doing small code maintenance tasks for that package and packages using its methods.
00:34 kid51 ** While there's probably more to be done on that, there would be no harm in merging that work into master as well so that people would have the benefit before the release.  See:  git diff master...pmc_emitter_document.  Just make a note during #ps as to how you want me to proceed.

10:42 kjs * Much progress on M1:

10:42 kjs - Fixed a variety of constructs (e.g., x++ v. ++x)
10:42 kjs - refactored symbol tables and scope handling.
10:42 kjs - implemented a simple register usage optimization, greatly reducing number of registers that are allocated.

18:45 alvis

18:46 alvis

18:46 alvis * Complete branch to fix up some brittleness issues with 'parrot_github_release.pl'

18:47 alvis

19:08 benabik DID:
19:08 benabik * Sketched out classes/API
19:08 benabik * Unplanned house guest, so not quite enough work this week
19:08 benabik * Blogged: URL
19:08 benabik WILL DO:
19:08 benabik * Code classes, attach disasm.winxed to them
19:08 benabik * Remember to blog
19:08 benabik EOR
19:08 benabik Oops, was suppose to finish the blog post before sending that.  fail.
19:10 benabik ALSO DID:  Fixed moritz's ICU fix so it worked on my machine
19:16 benabik s{URL}{http://www.parrot.org/content/pact-infrastructure}
19:30 cotto howdy
19:32 NotFound joined #parrotsketch
19:32 NotFound Hello
19:35 benabik hi
19:35 whiteknight joined #parrotsketch
19:36 whiteknight hello
19:36 NotFound Short report: fixed winxed problems with windows CRLF line ending, update snaspshot.
19:37 cotto How's this week been?
19:37 benabik Overly busy.  :-(
19:37 crab2313_ joined #parrotsketch
19:37 cotto seriously
19:39 cotto I see that we had some build issues on Debian testing.  Are those addressed?
19:39 NotFound Conversion of pbc_to_exe from hand coded pir to winxed has been succesful.
19:40 whiteknight seem to be getting there
19:40 whiteknight (re Debian testing)
19:40 NotFound My debian machine is dead, can't test.
19:40 cotto and also for ia64, which looks like a trickier issue, if only because of hardware availability
19:40 whiteknight yeah, that's going to be much harder to track down without active hardware
19:41 NotFound (well, not completely dead, but /home is seriously damaged)
19:42 cotto theoretically qemu could help with that
19:47 whiteknight and theoretically we aren't having the problem in the first place
19:48 cotto theory is fun like that
19:48 NotFound I think it's called "testing" for some reason.
19:51 cotto in other news, I'm going to try a mock upgrade of parrot.org to a modern version of drupal this evening if I find the time
19:51 cotto (which is likely)
19:54 cotto any questions for the coming week?
19:55 kjs joined #parrotsketch
19:59 whiteknight I'm going to see about a threads merge, but that may wait until after the release
19:59 whiteknight I wanted to do it last week, but I haven't seen nine around
20:02 cotto It sounds like there aren't any questions.  Let's call it a wrap.
