19:31 Util Hello! Who all are in attendance?
19:31 sa1 Hello Util. Glad you found something for me.
19:33 Util sa1: I cannot vouch for them being still-needed work, but if they are not, we still need someone to look closely
19:33 Util at the GC code to verify that they work has already been done, or is otherwise no-longer-needed.
19:34 Util Hopefully exactly one of them will require coding, and it can be coded in *exactly* the amount of time you have :^)
19:34 sa1 ok, I will look at it. I would need to learn a bit, but that's what I wanted.
19:34 Util sa1++
19:35 sa1 actually, I'm a bit busy this week, because of an coming interview, but I'll find time for it.
19:35 Util sa1: I apologize for not having found the time to use your Rakudo testing instructions yet, but I very much appriciate you working on it.
19:35 Util sa1: Great! And good luck with your interview!
19:36 sa1 Its no problem. I figured it would work on both Linux and Mac, but didn't know if Windows was a consideration.
19:36 sa1 Util: thanks!
19:38 sa1 I can't test things on Win, but there may be a few other things required.
19:39 Util My old Win system died, but I will soon have my wife's PC configured for Parrot&Rakudo testing.
19:40 Util Plus, there is always Amazon EC2 in a pinch.
19:41 sa1 Hmm, I can spin up an instance, but I probably will have firewall problems connecting to it.
19:42 Util sa1: when you have a handle on which of the GC tickets you are working on, please let us know on #parrot which one.
19:42 sa1 sure
19:43 Util sa1: firewall? Are you not home for your break?
19:44 sa1 I went for a few days and then returned, my friends have placement season ongoing here.
19:45 Util OK; just curious.
19:45 sa1 Christmas season isn't the get-together season here. :) The festive season mostly passed by.
19:47 sa1 I will go home sometime though, its not far away.
19:47 Util I see.
19:48 Util All during GSoC, I actually never got firm locations for any of you three students. Where exactly is home and school?
19:49 sa1 I study at IIT Kharagpur, and come from a small industrial city Jamshedpur.
19:49 sa1 Less than 200 km away.
19:50 sa1 Would take only 2-3 hours.
19:51 Util Thanks, that is just what I needed to get it straight in my head.
19:53 Util Any other business to discuss? Lurkers?
19:53 sa1 nothing else from me.
19:54 Util OK, then. Meeting adjourned.
