13:29 Util Pre-report:
13:29 Util # Done:
13:29 Util * Committed code for the Smolder fix.
13:29 Util + https://github.com/parrot/parrot/commit/9c6fd540c254c22779966b97271d6774930dd46e
13:29 Util + https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/1078
13:29 Util + rurban and kid51: does this resolve the problem for you?
13:29 Util # Doing:
13:29 Util * Finishing the full explanation of the Smolder/YAML issue, for the maintainers of Parrot and Smolder and YAML::Tiny.
13:29 Util .end
13:30 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
13:32 * lizmat is lurking as usual
13:32 Util \o
13:47 Coke lurk.
13:51 rurban A bit late. I'll check the smolder fixes soon. Got some good runs from different machines
13:52 Util rurban: Thanks!
13:55 Coke is the person who requested the new meeting time here? ;)
13:56 Coke I ask ONLY to be snarky. :)
13:57 rurban I haven't seen him today.
13:57 rurban Ok, my report:
13:57 rurban Done:
13:57 rurban * released 6.9.0 without smoke-me/coro-return-gh1106 (not yet ready)
13:57 rurban * finally got a 64-bit big-endian machine running, even 2 now.
13:57 rurban * merged and closed: smoke-me/mips64-gh1110 (and same for ppc64),
13:57 rurban smoke-me/run-pbc-gh1107, smoke-me/trace-NDEBUG-gh1105, disable-static-1104,
13:57 rurban smoke-me/illegal-escape-gh1103, rurban/coros-gh564, rurban/coro-reset-gh564
13:57 rurban smoke-me/null-call-gh1024, and some more.
13:57 rurban Work:
13:57 rurban * smoke-me/coro-return-gh1106
13:57 rurban * rurban/lexqnames-gh1095 .lex quoting the simple way (another hack on top of more hacks - not ready)
13:57 rurban rurban/lexqnames-gh1095-dev rewrote imcc string handling, proper quoting handling (not ready)
13:59 rurban I know now how coro autoreset semantics should look like, but the right implementation is still tricky
13:59 rurban but it's getting along. next will be immc fixes for string quoting
14:00 Util Coke: I answer only to be thorough: Chirag popped in after the last meeting was over, to decry missing it, due to his new (hopefully temporary) 12-hour workday.
14:00 rurban he said 10-12 hrs a day. I'm helping with with his new project remove autoboxing on method calls
14:02 Util rurban: what OS(s) are your 64-bit big-endian machines using?
14:03 rurban mips and powerpc, both debian
14:03 Util Great!
14:03 rurban sparc64 has no proper bios yet, and haven't tried arm64 yet. should work even better there
14:03 rurban mips got some issues, ppc64 is straightforward
14:04 rurban arm64 can run even natively via binfmt
14:04 rurban we found serious GC trouble on mips with low memory, and this is repro on all machines with very low memory
14:05 rurban either in PGE (parrot) or in NQP 6model
14:06 rurban but it can happen even with lot of tracing on (string pressure)
14:06 rurban 2 new tickets for this
14:07 rurban and —floatval="long double" is still having problems. I worked on a branch to fix that some time ago.
14:07 rurban I'll check later and update the ticket or file a new one
14:07 rurban Still got no DSL, just phone tethering
14:08 Util That "branch some time ago", is it still around, or merged?
14:09 rurban native_pbc2 was the name
14:09 rurban too busy with coro's right now
14:09 Util I see it, thanks.
14:10 rurban but native_pbc2 is doing too much. I can check later with the new machines. but all our native_pbc tests worked fine
14:10 rurban so just float, long double and __float128 do not work yet
14:11 rurban so it's not really important
14:12 rurban yes, and I need some 32bit smokes for `smoke-me/labs-gh1111`
14:12 rurban and I prepared a new vms branch smoke-me/vms-gh866, to be tested by mvorl
14:13 rurban good catch for the smolder problem. I tried a similar approach, but I wonder why I have not found it.
14:13 rurban I think I just quoted it, but didn't replace the space
14:15 rurban clang-3.6 is pretty good
14:15 Util rurban: Thanks. I dug in deep and found where YAML::Tiny used to not-quote keys with spaces (since the YAML std does not require them), but then started quoting as a side-effect of fixing a unprintable-character bug.
14:15 Util Smolder chokes on quoted keys, when the key is in the "extra data".
14:17 Util Is clang-3.6 released?
14:19 rurban nope
14:20 Util OK
14:21 Util Anything else to discuss? From anyone?
14:24 Util OK then. Thanks, everyone!
14:24 Util Meeting adjourned.

16:28 Chirag joined #parrotsketch
16:40 Chirag This is embarrassing, since I asked for the the change... 5.30 pm, I was still at work.. I will seek permission to install an irc client on the company's system
16:40 Chirag I asked for Friday, since 7.30 pm GMT = 1 am IST and I could have stayed up as late as possible... Irrespective, please feel free to fall back to the previous time, if that was more convenient :) ...
17:06 rurban This time is better for me
17:06 rurban you can install irssi, it's minimal
17:19 Chirag yes, i will do that.. I also found this irc.lc/magnet/parrot .. its web-chat
17:36 rurban nice
17:36 rurban french
