19:32 Util # Done:
19:32 Util * Released 5.4.0 with 1 test failure introduced by my error during the release process. No bug-fix release has been needed by Rakudo.
19:32 Util # Doing:
19:33 Util * Finishing YAPC::NA talk. Mostly dark until completion.
19:33 Util # Community:
19:33 Util * GSoC students selected! Congratulations to:
19:33 Util + sa1 (Saurabh Kumar): Parrot VM bindings to the libgit2 0.18 API
19:33 Util + pmurias (Paweł Murias): JavaScript backend for NQP (and Rakudo Perl 6)
19:33 Util + denisboyun (Denis Boyun) Improve Web UI of app-parrot-create
19:33 Util * GSoC "Community Bonding Period" runs May 27th through Jun 16th:
19:33 Util "Students get to know mentors, read documentation, get up to speed to begin working on their projects."
19:33 Util http://googlesummerofcode.blogspot.com/2007/0​4/so-what-is-this-community-bonding-all.html
19:33 Util # Requests:
19:33 Util * Coke would like assistance with a probable GC issue in NQP's use of Parrot.
19:33 Util + https://github.com/perl6/nqp/blob/maste​r/src/vm/parrot/pmc/sixmodelobject.pmc is showing up in some persistant rakudo failures when running on parrot. (specifically in destroy, but it could be an initial setup issue)

19:35 lizmat joined #parrotsketch
19:36 Util FYI, I will be sending out dukeleto's "Parrot's rules for GSoC" to students and mentors by tomorrow.
19:36 Util Hello! Who is in attendance?
19:37 * sa1 Util: Hi
19:37 * lizmat is just lurking at her first parrotsketch meeting
19:37 sa1 hmm, er sorry for that /me
19:38 sa1 anyway, I look forward to those rules
19:38 sa1 Util: What will be in there?
19:39 Util lizmat: Welcome! This meeting fell out of use for some months, and I am trying to get it back to general usefullness.
19:39 Util Especially needed now that GSoC has begun.
19:41 Util sa1: Things like weekly reports to #ps and blog posts, no starting another job w/o permission (since GSoC+College should = full time load), etc.
19:42 * sa1 Right.
19:42 sa1 damn, I have a habit of ctrl+enter from another client.
19:42 Util sa1: Do you still have unanswered questions about NCI, left over from your parrot-dev email?
19:43 sa1 Util: yes.
19:44 sa1 Basically I listed down some improvements needed.
19:44 sa1 I need feedback if they are enough or not.
19:44 sa1 Can't tell till I'm actually using those low-level bindings
19:47 Util Re-reading your email, I am unclear whether you are pointing out bugs in Parrot+Winxed NCI, or in the *use* of NCI by the libgit2 interface code that you will be working on. Clarify?
19:48 sa1 The latter.
19:48 sa1 I was pointing out bugs in the script that generates nci defs from git2 headers.
19:49 sa1 That's part of the current parrot-libgit2
19:53 Util sa1: I see. dukeleto will be mentoring you, and he is better equipped to speak on this, but I don't know when he will be able to resurface, and we don't want anyone idling when then want to be progressing.
19:53 Util So, I recommend that you take "nothing" as an answer to "Anything I missed?", and proceed on.
19:53 Util If you missed anything, it will turn up as you use the output of header2nci.pl.
19:54 sa1 Yes. I should proceed on.
19:55 Util We can help better with concrete failings, and with specific questions on things you remain fuzzy on. We discussed PMCs last week. Anything we can clarify this week?
19:55 sa1 No, not for now. The other doubts I have are libgit2 related.
19:56 Util We may be able to help with those, too.
19:56 isBEKaml joined #parrotsketch
19:57 sa1 They are mostly about what data-structures I need to add.
19:57 sa1 the header2nci.pl adds an interface to functions.
19:58 sa1 and common.winxed has many objects already.
19:58 sa1 Hmm, its a lot of manual work for now.
20:00 sa1 There was some more specific stuff too in there, but I forget.
20:00 sa1 I'll compose another email for dukeleto
20:06 * Util juggles #p and #ps; sorry for the delay.
20:07 quias joined #parrotsketch
20:07 Util sa1: Consider cc'ing parrot-dev on anything you ask dukeleto, when there is a chance one of us could respond faster, or with a different perspective.
20:07 Util An email with specifics is a good next step.
20:08 Util sa1: Are you coming to YAPC::NA? Do you know if the other two GSoC students are coming?
20:09 sa1 Util: can't. Its on the other side of the world. I don't know about the other students.
20:09 Util sa1: OK, thanks.
20:09 sa1 I would have loved to come though.
20:09 sa1 Not enough similar conferences here.
20:10 Util YAPC::Asia close enough?
20:14 Util Notice to late-comers: Next week's meeting may be minimal, due to YAPC::NA attendance. Pre-reports and post-reports will be welcome.
20:14 Util ANy other business before adjourning?
20:14 sa1 No. Once its outside the country then I don't think it matters much. I'll have to fund travel, stays, etc.
20:15 sa1 The gsoc money will probably be a good investment on these things once I get more integrated with the community I guess.
20:16 sa1 I did meet timtoady here though last year.
20:17 sa1 No other business from my side.
20:17 Util OK then, Meeting Adjourned, and Thanks to all participants!
