19:31 Util Report:
19:31 Util # Done: Nil (All delayed 1 week for $WORK)
19:31 Util .end
19:31 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
19:33 rurban_ me
19:33 rurban_ and Chirag should also report
19:33 Chirag Yes
19:33 Chirag I am here
19:34 Util Welcome! Report when ready :)
19:35 rurban_ Done: Improved pmc2c to optimize write barriers, and properly apply :no_wb, :manual_wb and use RETURN() statements. Could need a few more cross-checks
19:35 rurban_ If WBs can be omitted methods can now use :no_wb or :manual_wb. Docs are also needed for this new feature.
19:36 rurban_ Me and Chirag annotated all PMCs and got a speed improvement of 2.5% in an average benchmark
19:36 rurban_ Looks like the regressions are also gone now, but need more testing
19:37 rurban_ Todo: more testing, docs, more pcm2c cross-checks
19:38 rurban_ My benchmark machine is under too high load, will check later how much faster we are now. Maybe it's 5%
19:38 rurban_ .end
19:38 Chirag Done: Same as rurban. I am getting a working build on my machine with our WIP.
19:39 Chirag TODO: Check more pmc files
19:39 Chirag .end
19:41 rurban_ We also haven't optimized the dynpmc's yet. Need to think of other langs using our new pmc2c
19:41 rurban_ Pretty happy about the GSOC progress
19:41 Util Sounds like great progress to me.
19:42 Util Chirag: Gentle reminder: TPF GSoC requires weekly blog posts; bi-weekly at absolute longest.
19:42 rurban_ In Summary: For all writer methods have now one less nested C function call, and we removed several duplicate write barriers, which are costly.
19:42 Chirag yes.. I will do that in a day
19:43 Util Exellent
19:43 * Util fingers out-type brain
19:44 rurban_ Chirag is still bit new to proper git discipline and coding standards, but he'll learn it. I'll fix it up promptly. 4 eyes are also much better to catch tricky WB/GC bugs
19:45 rurban_ I will not merge it before I'm sure rakudo will be able to handle it.
19:45 Util Glad to hear it. (re: merge)
19:45 Util Do I understand correctly, that the 2.5%+ speedup is *only* from removing-or-repositioning WBs?
19:47 rurban_ yes
19:47 Util thx
19:47 Util YAPC::NA::2014 in Orlando; Do I have this right?   rurban=Attending  Chirag=Not_attending_this_year
19:48 rurban_ from removing unneeded WBs, and removing one nested call for writers
19:48 rurban_ I'm attending, yes
19:48 Chirag cannot attend
19:48 rurban_ maybe we get a perl.org budget to get Chirag to Orlando
19:49 rurban_ Chirag: Is it only the budget?
19:49 Chirag I dont know about the dates
19:49 Chirag either
19:49 rurban_ end of june
19:49 Chirag I am available
19:49 rurban_ http://www.yapcna.org/yn2014/ june 23-25
19:49 Chirag But visa?
19:50 rurban_ Just as tourist
19:51 Util Chirag: FYI, in the past, either TPF or YAPC itself, have helped GSoC students with $TRAVEL to YAPC.
19:51 rurban_ But you'll have to wait ~1hr in the customs line a the US entry, everybody has to.
19:51 Util If you cannot make YAPC::NA, you might check the dates for YAPC::EU and YAPC::Asia, to see if either fits your schedule.
19:51 rurban_ EU is in August, in Sofia, Bulgaria, but I'm not yet sure if I will go. I already got the plane ticket though
19:52 Chirag June is perfect for me
19:52 rurban_ Asia maybe. Asia is really nice and huge, but almost no english
19:52 Util Visa: people coming from overseas to YAPC::NA::2014, will look like all the tourists coming to Walt Disney World.
19:53 Util http://yapcasia.org/2014/
19:53 Chirag I am planning to come to US for my masters next year .. If getting a visa now won't interfere with that then I am in .. Also, some funding will help
19:54 Util http://www.yapceurope.org/       http://act.yapc.eu/ye2014/
19:54 rurban_ uh, looks like he needs a visa: http://www.ustraveldocs.com​/in/in-niv-visatypeinfo.asp
19:54 rurban_ India is not a member of the VIS Waiver program
19:54 rurban_ VISA Waiver
19:55 * Util reads
19:56 Util I concur, unfortunately.
19:56 rurban_ http://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/in-niv-typeb1b2.asp looks like overkill to me. Looks like he needs to go to Delhi to get a VISA
19:56 Chirag it says 60 days for the procedure
19:56 rurban_ And the VISA fee is $160
19:57 rurban_ Oh my, even getting married is easier
19:57 Chirag thats not much i guess
19:58 Util BTW, how is it that Houston.pm will have 46 people there??? I can only get 3 from Atlanta.pm, and *it* is in *driving* distance of Orlando!
19:58 rurban_ Maybe you got a Visa Application Center (VAC) nearby. Mumbai probably
19:58 Chirag Let me check
19:58 rurban_ CPanel is shipping some devs to Orlando as usual
19:59 rurban_ 46 is not so much, in Austin we were more. From my team only one is not allowed to go
20:00 rurban_ I'll be offline the week before Orlando, holidays in Boise
20:00 Util Noted, thanks
20:00 Chirag I have come home to Hyderabad .. There is one close by
20:01 rurban_ I'm pretty sure the VISA vetting needs more than 2 weeks
20:03 rurban_ The other visa is here: http://bulgaria.visahq.in/
20:03 rurban_ There's one in Hyderabad though
20:04 rurban_ Copy of a recent bank statement showing proof of sufficient funds (at least $60 per day). Letter on company letterhead from Health Insurance Company indicating the coverage plan for the applicant
20:04 rurban_ that's like going to Russia
20:05 Util We should move the Visa discussion back to #parrot.
20:05 Util Anything else before we adjourn? From anyone?
20:05 rurban_ I would say, looks bad
20:07 Util OK, then. Meeting adjourned. Thanks!
