19:35 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
19:35 Chirag Me
19:36 rurban_ Me also, (while watching MEX-BRA)
19:36 Util rurban++ # for Parrot release
19:37 Util Welcome
19:37 Util Chirag, do you have a GSoC report for the week?
19:38 Chirag I have to do that.. will finish it by tomorrow
19:39 Chirag I have just started with my 2nd task #1080
19:39 Util OK.
19:39 Util rurban_: Are you on schedule for the midterm review?
19:39 rurban_ yes. in orlando
19:39 rurban_ DONE:
19:39 rurban_ * minor release-related fixes
19:39 rurban_ * lots of testing on all platforms
19:39 rurban_ * added missing old docs to doc.parrot.org
19:39 rurban_ * prepared Chirag for the next round
19:39 rurban_ TODO:
19:39 rurban_ * smolder server setup is hairy
19:39 rurban_ * help Chirag with GH 1080
19:39 rurban_ BLOCKS:
19:39 rurban_ * overly good weather next week
19:39 rurban_ * surfing and yapc
19:41 rurban_ and I added some nqp and roast improvements. bumped NQP to use 6.5.0 (was still at 6.1.0)
19:41 rurban_ all perl6 spectests pass now again
19:42 Util Great!
19:42 rurban_ one more TODO: namealias --without-icu (if meaningfull, will check)
19:43 rurban_ I prepared a framework to add a fast, small perfect hash, optimized for shared libs. (namealias) or other ICU related stuff
19:43 rurban_ or for PCRE which also misses unicode character names so far
19:45 Util Chirag: Please remind me of your blog URL.
19:46 Chirag https://www.parrot.org/blog/2177
19:46 Util Chirag: Thanks
19:46 Chirag No problem :)
19:47 rurban_ I think the 4328 methods number is wrong
19:47 Chirag ?
19:47 rurban_ A better egrep is needed. And less !! excitement please :)
19:47 rurban_ yes, I came up with this number. my fault
19:47 Chirag even I did
19:48 Chirag oh.. more formal
19:48 Util rurban_: http://beyondgrep.com/
19:49 rurban_ $ egrep " (VTABLE|MULTI|METHOD) " src/{dyn,}pmc/*.pmc | wc -l
19:49 rurban_ 2260
19:49 rurban_ $ egrep "^ +(VTABLE|MULTI|METHOD) " src/{dyn,}pmc/*.pmc | wc -l
19:49 rurban_ 2230
19:49 rurban_ this number looks better (=pod stuff)
19:51 rurban_ thanks
19:51 Chirag done .. will make the reports more formal from now on.. thanks :)
19:52 Util rurban_: Last Tuesday, I read and approved of your WB docs.
19:52 Util Looked very good to me.
19:52 Util I somehow failed to *say* that in IRC, though. Mea Culpa.
19:53 rurban_ Chirag: Thanks. We already know all that. It's for the others from perl5 and perl6
19:53 rurban_ Util++ Thanks
19:55 rurban_ So long-term I have on my plate: jit, which needs computed goto runloop and the old perl5 ops2c (probably)
19:56 rurban_ 6model (more MOP alike, dynamically change methods)
19:56 rurban_ pasm_out maybe
19:57 Util what is pasm_out ?
19:57 rurban_ and NCI (mainly SDL). get the old sigs back, which lobsinger removed
19:58 rurban_ pasm_out has a ticket #989 and a branch rurban/pasm_out
19:58 rurban_ only minor refactoring of how imcc is called
19:59 Util OK, thanks.
20:00 Util I like the contents of your plate. :)
20:01 Util Any blockers (for the next 2 weeks of work)?
20:03 rurban_ well, the real work would be what I said on #moarvm. 2x speed by jit, ext_call overhead, IMCC string encoding weirdness, sprintf varargs overhead
20:03 rurban_ That's work until spring next year
20:04 * Util is behind on reading #moarvm; will read your info there tonight.
20:04 Util Anything else before we adjourn? From anyone?
20:06 Util OK, then. Meeting adjourned. Thanks!
