19:31 Util # Done/Doing:
19:31 Util * Looking into FROGGS \\o/ bug. rurban might find it faster, though :)
19:31 Util * Smolder
19:31 Util + Bisected test payload sizes, and disproved the theory that the problem had to do with size.
19:31 Util + I can construct small uploads that succeed from Linux, but cannot pursue the problem deeper without logon credentials to the host.
19:31 Util + A few minutes ago, I requested a reboot from OSUOSL. I will check Smolder's uploading after that.
19:31 Util .end
19:32 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
19:32 Chirag Hi!
19:33 rurban Me
19:33 rurban Done:
19:33 rurban * Fixed several pull requests
19:33 rurban * Merged several new and old branches: -t flags, fast tests, setlocale,
19:33 rurban pio_nr_open-3-gh1093, trap on x86_64
19:33 rurban * lot of caging: cc warnings, -t flags, const env API, add missing manpages,
19:33 rurban Work:
19:33 rurban * rurban/corosgh564: add and fix tests - ready
19:33 rurban * rurban/coro-reset-gh564: added Coroutine.reset - ready
19:33 rurban * darwin build changes to be able to use gdb (link static, no -undefined dynamic_lookup)
19:33 rurban * gerdr/socket-readline-gh944: looks bad
19:33 rurban To be reviewed:
19:33 rurban * smoke-me/newlines3-gh1087: strange smoke signals with 0xa0/  as whitespace
19:34 rurban Also wanted to look at FROGGS \\o/ bug, but my perl6 is broken right now
19:35 rurban and talked with perl6 about coros. .reset is basically not needed. they clone a coro, which is better anyway
19:36 Util rurban: This worked for me earlier today:
19:36 Util perl Configure.pl --gen-moar --gen-parrot --gen-nqp --backends=moar,parrot ; make install
19:39 rurban That's what I usually, but I had several parrot and nqp branches in testing
19:39 Util OK
19:39 rurban And I still only have my small laptop, no big machines yet
19:39 Chirag Hi rurban! So, are you in Dresden now?
19:40 rurban yes, almost finished moving. 8hr workday already
19:40 Chirag oh
19:40 rurban had 4 parrot days so far :)
19:41 Chirag :)
19:41 rurban and made p2 as fast as C (for the small benchmarks)
19:42 rurban And I started cleaning up old tickets
19:43 Chirag Now that I have more time, I will start to figure out an approach for the autoboxing problem
19:43 rurban great, I also have some time now
19:44 rurban I looked at coros and normal calls already, -tc will give now better trace diagnostics
19:44 rurban and find_method dispatch diagnostics also
19:45 rurban ./parrot —help-debug
19:45 Chirag nice!
19:46 rurban you can add a temp trace flag (as I did for coros in rurban/coro-reset-gh564), to follow the boxing
19:47 rurban we have quite a few trace flags left
19:47 Chirag I will try it out this weekend..
19:47 rurban I still need to make my temp darwin fixes permanent somehow. Does anybody else gdb under darwin?
19:49 Util I will when I next need it, but have not yet. Back when I was needing gdb, I was on my old Macbook that lacked gdb, and did all the debugging on Linux.
19:51 rurban I was not sure if I am the only one with this problem before I fixed it.
19:51 rurban I'll submit a ticket then, and make a branch. rpath is also outstanding there
19:53 Util I like that plan.
19:55 Util rurban: btw, the Internet says that Apple wants us to use `lldb` instead now.
19:58 Util Anything else to discuss? From anyone?
19:59 Chirag Nothing from me
20:00 Util OK. Thanks everyone!
20:00 Util Meeting adjourned.
20:00 Chirag Thanks!
