00:12 sivoais first release of Devel::IPerl is out. No major changes, but finally getting it out there to the wider Perl community.
00:46 mohawk good work!
00:50 sivoais mohawk: do you try to target Gimp Perl on Windows?
00:51 sivoais if so, have you seen <http://win-builds.org/>? That could be a future Alien target that installs a metapackage.
00:51 mohawk sivoais, i want to have gp on windows
00:51 mohawk there's a problem now with testing - i'd need an alien::gimp, i think
00:52 mohawk a working a::g would help with a windows port - in fact, that would probably be a complete solution
00:53 mohawk damn, that win-builds thing looks good
00:54 sivoais Alien::MSYS exists and I've used it in making Alien::LibMagic build. It's great because it tucks away the bash shell away from cmd.exe
00:55 sivoais MS has been working on an FLOSS packager for Windows, but it doesn't seem to have made much progress.
00:55 mohawk well, good for them
00:55 * sivoais & # heading out to dinner :-)
00:55 mohawk i think some skepticism is natural ;-)
00:55 mohawk bon appetit, amigo
