19:30 rurban_ 2014-06-10 rurban
19:30 rurban_ DONE:
19:30 rurban_ * fixed together with Chirag the last WB bug, added one more pmc2c improvement, but
19:30 rurban_ I've still got 8 wrong warnings on Error: Missing manual_wb GC write barrier to Object.*
19:30 rurban_ * found together with Chirag several more WB optimizations possibilities, we are at
19:30 rurban_ 2.5% better currently. could get better.
19:30 rurban_ * added pmc and pmc2c docs, needs a 3rd eye
19:30 rurban_ * tested and benched rakudo ok
19:30 rurban_ * gsoc branch looks mergable for the next 6.5.0 release (till saturday).
19:30 rurban_ will do tomorrow
19:30 rurban_ TODO:
19:30 rurban_ * maybe find a few more WB optimizations
19:30 rurban_ * check dynpmc's, so far all looked good
19:30 rurban_ BLOCKS:
19:30 rurban_ * none
19:31 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
19:31 Chirag Me
19:32 Chirag DONE:
19:32 Chirag * Same as rurban
19:32 Chirag TODO:
19:32 Chirag * Find more WB optimizations
19:32 Chirag * Weekly Report
19:34 rurban_ Ah, yes the weekly report should be done now. We are looking good now. (Better than other GSOC projects so far:)
19:34 Chirag :)
19:35 rurban_ But I did not only mentoring, more like a co-worker. I did the hairy and Chirag the heavy stuff
19:36 rurban_ Chirag is also still pretty green with git, but it's getting better.
19:37 rurban_ Next week after the release I'll go on holidays until YAPC
19:37 Chirag I agree. Understanding Parrot's working has been a bigger challenge than making contributions.. :)
19:37 Util Division by hairy-vs-heavy might not be the usual for GSoC projects, but I understand how it is needed for this one.
19:37 Util Chirag++
19:37 Util rurban++
19:38 rurban_ Util: could you look at the 3 docs: changelog, pmc.pod and pmc2c.pod at https://github.com/parrot/parrot/​commits/rurban/pmc2c_orig2-gh1069
19:38 rurban_ I'll probably also write a mail to parrot-dev for the new features and the docs
19:38 Util rurban_: Will do this evening, and respond by #parrot IRC.
19:38 rurban_ thanks
19:39 Chirag rurban: maybe your vacation period might clash with GSoC evaluations?
19:39 rurban_ the midterm?
19:39 Chirag yes?
19:40 rurban_ lemme check...
19:40 Chirag no.. its from 24-28
19:42 rurban_ I'll do it in Orlando. looks good
19:43 Chirag 6.5.0 is scheduled for this saturday? or the next?
19:43 rurban_ I'll leaving HOU at Wed 6/18 one day after the release. and be offline for a few days until YAPC (camping in Boise, Idaho)
19:44 rurban_ 6.5.0 is done at Tue 6/17. and the coding deadline is this Saturday
19:44 Util Chirag: Jun 17th (One week from today) ; see docs/project/release_manager_guide.pod
19:45 Chirag alright :)
19:45 rurban_ we usually test it for a few days
19:45 rurban_ and get the docs and tests right
19:47 rurban_ I will look once again over all the PMC's (we changed many), the dynpmc's and do a minor squash into ~4 commits: pmc2c, fixes, optimizations and the docs
19:47 rurban_ or maybe leave it as it is. no strong opinion
19:47 Chirag I will continue checking pmcs at my end as well
19:48 rurban_ good
19:48 rurban_ we are correct now, and I guess we can get a bit faster still. maybe up to 5%
19:49 rurban_ we can always do that later, after 6.5.0 also
19:53 rurban_ think we are done
19:53 Util Any blockers?
19:53 rurban_ none
19:54 Util Anything else before we adjourn? From anyone?
19:55 Util OK, then. Meeting adjourned. Thanks!
20:02 rurban_ Forgot to add. The gc MEMORY_DEBUG fixes I did where crucial to find the remaining bugs. we can now sanity check and see all the GC'd PMC's with the current GMS gc
