14:30 Chirag joined #parrotsketch
19:33 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
19:33 Chirag Hello! me :)
19:35 Util Welcome!
19:35 Util Parrot 6.8.0 will be released next week.
19:35 Util Does anyone have branches to merge for 6.8.0?
19:36 rurban_ joined #parrotsketch
19:37 Chirag I don't..
19:37 rurban_ Hi, I was working on a minor testfast branch, but looks bad
19:38 rurban_ smoke-me/testfast-gh1086
19:38 rurban_ we could use the new absolute execname patch to support relative paths, which rakudo requested
19:41 Util rurban_: Please point me to the patch
19:42 rurban_ relocatable-gh800 was my branch
19:43 Util Oh, I see, the long-standing relocation issue. Has the Rakudo said anything about it recently?
19:44 rurban_ it's quite a lot of work involved. rpath geing relative, all 3 internal paths being relative.
19:44 rurban_ but at least we have now the absolute path available
19:45 rurban_ so probably not doable within this week
19:45 rurban_ no, rakudo said nothing, but we got now the first part solved
19:51 rurban_ nothing else from my side
19:51 Util When I search `git log` for references to "relocatable-gh800", I get nothing. I see benabik mentioned merging the branch (and 11 other branches) in IRC on Feb 15 2013.
19:52 Util Can you point me at component commits, or at a command that could help me see them?
19:52 rurban_ I think it's just an empty placeholder. deleted upstream
19:53 rurban_ yes
19:53 Util Was it always empty?
19:53 rurban_ yes, I think so
19:54 Util Then when you said "we got now the first part solved", what were you referring to?
19:54 rurban_ the absolute execname
19:54 rurban_ perl5 had the same prolem some time ago, and they also started with the parts we have now in.
19:55 rurban_ it's the same code, so it's at least properly tested
19:55 Util Doh! 3c00e7e , it was right in front of me. Thanks!
19:55 rurban_ so from this and getcwd, and then relative rpath's we can relativize the 3 internal loadpaths also
19:56 rurban_ rurban/darwin-rpath-gh883 is part 2
19:57 rurban_ jkeenan got a problem with the darwin rpath branch still
19:57 Util This will be very good to finish, but not in time for 6.8.0. Maybe for 6.9.0?
19:57 rurban_ the rakudo usecases are windows and darwin only
19:57 rurban_ 6.9.0 maybe
19:57 Util I am on Darwin, and so will test rurban/darwin-rpath-gh883 , too.
19:58 rurban_ please, needs to be rebased, but is simple. I need sometimes for easier testing, still works for me
19:59 rurban_ on darwin it would be putting rakudo into /Applications/... and it should still work
19:59 Util Any blockers for anyone?
19:59 rurban_ on windows: change the drive (like put it onto a stick)
19:59 rurban_ no blockers for me :)
20:00 rurban_ maybe the rurban/darwin-rpath-gh883 branch
20:00 Util Coke: (from last week, after the meeting was over) Thanks for the answer!
20:00 Util rurban_: OK.
20:00 Util Anything else to discuss? From anyone?
20:00 rurban_ nope
20:00 Chirag no
20:01 Util Thanks everyone! Meeting adjourned.
