19:31 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
19:36 pmichaud joined #parrotsketch
19:37 pmichaud good afternoon
19:37 Util Hi, pmichaud
19:38 pmichaud I can report:  I added methods to the existing EvalPMC type to emulate enough of PackfileView so that NQP can now run with either.
19:39 Util I was just about to ask: PackfileView-compatible methods added to EvalPMC - are these being used successfully now?
19:39 pmichaud in a branch of NQP, yes.
19:40 pmichaud as soon as Parrot releases with the new methods in place it'll merge to trunk
19:40 Util Does this mean that Rakudo will require Parrot v5.9.0 for Parrot-based builds after the next Rakudo release?
19:40 pmichaud Yes.
19:40 Util (5.9.0 releasing today)
19:40 pmichaud now on phone
19:40 Util ok
19:48 Util I assume that after the next Rakudo release, the discussion will resume (from last week's meeting) about PackFile and EvalPMC.
20:04 denis_boyun joined #parrotsketch
20:09 Util pmichaud: feel free to comment here after the meeting ends
20:09 Util Anything else to discuss?
20:10 Util Thanks all! (Lurkers, too)
20:10 Util Meeting adjourned.

20:14 pmichaud Once Parrot release is done today, we'll verify that NQP and Rakudo (with the new patches) work properly with Parrot 5.9.0.
20:15 pmichaud after those patches go in place, then yes, future versions of Rakudo require at least 5.9.0 to run.
20:15 pmichaud Parrot should be able to then convert from EvalPMC to PackfileView whenever is convenient for Parrot.
20:15 pmichaud I.e., NQP + Rakudo will run with either.
20:16 pmichaud EOR
20:20 Util pmichaud++
