13:07 * lizmat is in the process of adding v6.c where needed
13:22 [Coke] lizmat++!
13:22 lizmat also: I was thinking of copying spectest.data into roast at some location
13:23 lizmat and adapt the makefile so that it uses that if it exists, instead of the one from rakudo
13:23 lizmat probably call it something like spectest.data.rakudo
13:23 lizmat would that make sense?
13:26 moritz yes
13:26 moritz at least from a branching point of view
13:29 [Coke] the versioned branch at the moment is "everything"; not sure it makes sense to have the list in the branch.
13:29 lizmat also: maybe we should remove test files from the errata branch that were *not* part of the 6.c spectest.data ?
13:30 lizmat [Coke] : there are 3 new test files that cause a warning when running make spectest because they didn't exist
13:30 lizmat I would remove those from the list in the branch
13:31 lizmat thereby preserving in fact the 6.c list at the time of 2015.12
13:34 [Coke] lizmat: there are no files on the errata branch that wer enot part of the 6.c spectest data.
13:34 [Coke] I already removed them when I did the 6.c tag
13:35 lizmat ah, cool  :-)
13:35 [Coke] that list is the list of files on that branch ATM.
13:35 lizmat ah, ok, so you're saying it should ad-hoc create the list of files to test?
13:35 [Coke] (the 3 missing files). Yah, I noticed that when running the tests for the release, which is I think what sparked the discussion in here earlier. :)
13:36 [Coke] lizmat: right. maybe have a file like VERSION at top level of roast; if present, just run every file you find.
13:36 [Coke] right now that's kind of embedded in the README.
13:37 lizmat hmmm... that becomes more makefile fu than I may be able to handle quickly
13:37 lizmat or would these just be script changes of the runner?
13:37 [Coke] yah. not a lot of benefit for the "missing file" warning cleanup at the moment. I think we can let this one percolate for a bit.
