19:28 Util Pre-report:
19:28 Util * Ran fulltest on rurban/darwin-rpath-gh883; all OK.
19:28 Util * Releasing Parrot 6.8.0 today.
19:28 Util .end
19:30 Util #ps time
19:31 rurban Done: One final execname fix for darwin
19:32 rurban .end
19:32 rurban And fixed irc access on my laptop. will be not much online next 2 weeks or so
19:33 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
19:34 rurban me
19:34 Util Welcome.
19:35 Util rurban: Will you still be working with the Perl Compiler after you complete your move and get settled in?
19:36 rurban Sure. B::C, p2/potion, parrot, perl5
19:37 Util Great!
19:37 rurban But B::C is pretty stable, so only bugfixes. new features (compile to dll's) after some months or so
19:37 rurban I also made some progress on p2, fixed the GC. so only some the parser and library funcs are missing to run p5+p6
19:37 rurban the p6 parser is actually already done, just p5 not yet
19:38 rurban I'll try to get the roast5/base/*.t tests done soon
19:39 Util Sounds great!
19:39 rurban heredoc and other specialities mainly
19:39 rurban and some file ops (chdir, open, …)
19:40 rurban But I got a good OO and early binding of types already. type opts not yet
19:41 rurban biggest probem is to port parrot's threads over, with maybe thread-safe bags to for the scheduler
19:42 rurban and fix the debugger and ffi
19:43 rurban contrary to perl5 I insert debug ops for each line when requested. this is how perl5 should do it also.
19:44 rurban but no direct influences on or to parrot
19:44 Util Once you are settled in, you and I and Chirag (and Coke) should discuss whether
19:44 Util a different time-of-day or day-of-week would be best for this #ps meeting.
19:44 rurban yes, maybe
19:45 rurban a bit earlier for india probably
19:45 Util Do you need me to handle next month's release, or are you confident that you will be settled by then?
19:45 rurban in europe it's 9:30pm
19:45 rurban I will shout if not
19:45 Util OK, I can take it if you shout.
19:46 rurban should be easily doable with my laptop only
19:46 rurban just mass testing is lacking
19:46 Util #ps is 2:30 pm here
19:46 rurban in india it's 1am I think
19:47 rurban that's the biggest issue
19:47 Util Right
19:49 rurban travis teststatus looks better now. they to have upgraded most boxes by now. (we could not apt-get some needed dev packages)
19:49 Util Is there a URL I can see for that?
19:49 rurban https://travis-ci.org/parrot/parrot/builds
19:50 Util Right, thanks.
19:50 rurban they cleanup the fail's from this list, which failed in the prep stage
19:50 rurban cleaned up
19:51 rurban any insights on smolder?
19:52 rurban http://smolder.parrot.org/a​pp/projects/smoke_reports/1 still has all the unknown linux reports
19:53 Util rurban: Yes, I just ran out of time; will handle after the release.
19:53 rurban would be super fine
19:54 Util Anything else to discuss? From anyone?
19:54 rurban nope
19:55 Util Thanks! Meeting adjourned.
