13:32 Util Hello! Who all is in attendance?
13:41 rurban joined #parrotsketch
13:41 rurban sorry, was too busy with caging
13:43 rurban done: release, capture fixes, sizefmt
13:43 rurban work: gc regression on small machines #1159, cage fixes, nqp fixes
13:43 rurban perl6 fixes
13:45 rurban so basically 6.11.0 is not usable with perl6 yet, and there's a gc regression, which seems to be fixed with smoke-me/gc-gh1159
13:47 rurban I also started working on the unique object id (get_id for Proxy, not GC safe yet)
13:47 rurban the feature works, but the test not yet
13:48 Util rurban: And, you released Parrot 6.11 !
13:49 rurban and I got my testing machines properly setup. can test now on windows. bsd, solaris. ppc not yet
13:49 rurban I also lost my mips64 and ppc64 box for a while
13:52 rurban top prio is getting nqp and perl6 fixed
13:53 rurban so they can get the new speed improvements
13:55 Util I agree (on top prio), also so that Rakudo-on-Parrot is in a regressed state for as short a time as possible.
13:56 rurban yes, and find possible parrot bugs. the current theory it's a nqp and perl6 fault. too tightly coupled to changed internals
13:57 rurban perl6: https://gist.github.com/lizmat/dd0f88e6042e7c4ce011
13:57 rurban https://github.com/perl6/nqp/issues/209
13:58 rurban and the parrot-rpa branches in rakudo and nqp
13:58 rurban add add better testcases for those regressions into nqp
13:59 Util Sounds good. And thanks for the links.
14:02 Util Anything else to discuss? From anyone?
14:03 rurban chirag showed up, and announced that his summer internship has ended
14:03 rurban so it looks like he has time now. but I'm not sure what to give him
14:03 rurban I'm not ready yet for autoboxing
14:04 rurban We'll see
14:05 rurban And I started working on a type inferencer (for p2)
14:05 rurban I could use that later for perl5 and perl6
14:06 Util I am glad to see Chirag back; I will keep an eye out for work that might be a good match for him.
14:09 Util Happy Holidays, everyone!
14:09 Util Meeting adjourned.
14:10 rurban Bye!
