19:30 Util # Happenings:
19:30 Util * GSoC:
19:30 Util + We had 8 proposals at the close of the submission period.
19:30 Util + 3 are incomplete or unspecific, and cannot be considered (IMHO)
19:30 Util + The remaining 5 look good, with detailed proposals and likely mentors.
19:31 Util = LAPACK's only proposed mentor is Whiteknight.
19:31 Util = I emailed Whiteknight: "mentoring this year?"; awaiting reply
19:31 Util + Requested 5 Slots from GSoC, with 3 marked high priority.
19:31 Util + All mentors: please log on to Melange, vote, and request to be mentor for your projects.
19:31 Util .end
19:33 Util Hello! Who all is here?
19:35 sa1 Util: I just saw the pre-report. I'm guessing I should leave while you can discuss proposals?
19:36 Util This just became official: GSoC has given Parrot Foundation 3 Slots!
19:36 Util sa1: Stay and fight!
19:36 sa1 Nice!
19:38 * sa1 didn't work on anything this week, apart from a half-hearted attempt at a winxed mode for emacs.
19:38 Util FYI, I am new to acting as more of a (cheer?)leader in the Parrot community, and have done a poor job letting people know about meetings, etc with sufficient lead time, esp by email.
19:38 Util sa1: As a GSoC student, can you see the details of the other proposals?
19:39 sa1 Util: No, unless its publicly available and the student posts the url.
19:40 sa1 So I read one other proposal that was posted on #parrot last week.
19:41 Util (Possible)Mentor, Candidate, Title:
19:41 Util dukeleto     Saurabh Kumar(sa1)   Parrot VM bindings to the libgit2 0.18 API
19:41 Util benabik      Paweł Murias         JavaScript backend for NQP (and Rakudo Perl 6).
19:41 Util whiteknight  Zachary Seymour      LAPACK bindings for Parrot-Linear-Algebra
19:41 Util white/ben    Rok Sokol            New Assembly Language
19:41 Util Util?/leto?  Denis Boyun          Improve Web UI of app-parrot-create
19:42 Util Original task list for detail: https://github.com/parrot/parrot​/wiki/Summer-of-Code-Task-Ideas
19:44 Util Thu, May 9 - Thu, May 23 is the discussion period, where we will hammer out who gets our slots, and firm up any vagueness in their project milestones.
19:45 Util This will happen here, in #parrot, and (hopefully mainly) on email.
19:46 Util dukeleto is scheduled to be back May 9th or 10th.
19:47 Util I am mostly AFK from now+2h until Monday morning, May 13th.
19:48 Util I will start an email thread before I leave today, for GSoC proposal "horse trading".
19:49 Util sa1++ for IRC participation; I will mention that in the email.
19:49 sa1 Thank you :)
19:50 Util sa1: IMHO, all the candidate students should have a voice in this discussion, to be able to answer questions, and fight for their proposed work.
19:51 sa1 Right.
19:51 moritz speaking of IRC, I've pretty-upped the logs a bit: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/
19:52 Util moritz: *and* revived/replaced your ailing box. Congrats!
19:53 Util Oooh! Shiny!
19:58 Util Last week's log: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/parrotsketch/2013-04-30
19:58 Util I am hopeful that my request last week for post-reports during the (then-)coming week fell on no ears, due to moritz++ logs being unavailable.
19:59 Util Anything else before adjourning?
20:00 Util Then, meeting adjourned. Thanks to all! (Including lurkers and log-readers)
