19:34 Auzon moritz_: ping. Should anyone else be present?
19:34 moritz_ Auzon: pong. forgot time :(
19:34 Auzon It's OK.
19:34 Auzon I used the time to write out my notes beforehand :)
19:35 moritz_ I think particle and pmichaud are absorbed by YAPC::NA
19:35 moritz_ so it'll be just the two of us ;)
19:35 moritz_ go right ahead ;)
19:35 Auzon - Working on S02 this week. I've written ~25 tests so far, mainly dealing with the many ways to access a variable in Perl 6.
19:35 Auzon - I'm slowly doing some reorganization on S02. I'm going to reorganize anything I'm modifying anyway (if I feel it needs it), so let me know if I misorganize anything.
19:35 Auzon - S02 and S03 both get 1.5 weeks, since I split next week between the two synopses. I'm not too far in S02, so this seems like a good choice so far. I'll blog as usual in the weekend, and switch to S03 right after next week's meeting or so.
19:35 Auzon - As noted in my blog/email report last weekend, last week was my most productive so far. I hope I can keep that pace this week and the rest of the summer.
19:35 Auzon EOR
19:36 moritz_ * hacked a few tests
19:36 moritz_ * monitored your commits - very good stuff mostly
19:36 moritz_ * hacked a small script that visualizes rakudo's docs/spectest-progress.csv. Newest version shows passed/todo/skipped tests as stacked bars. Not yet sent to the list, though
19:36 moritz_ * mostly plagued by $reallife. Should improve now ;-)
19:36 moritz_ having just one question
19:36 moritz_ are people (ie language implementors) actually propose topics to test?
19:37 Auzon They have not yet.
19:37 moritz_ should we encourage them?
19:38 TimToady I'm listening vaguely during lightning talks...
19:38 Auzon I'd love to receive requests from implementers and others.
19:39 moritz_ Auzon: best send a mail to p6c saying just that
19:39 moritz_ Auzon: people aren't used to be able to delegate work to others in p6 land
19:39 moritz_ Auzon: so it's good to encourage them
19:40 Auzon It'd benefit me, and would help out any others that want something to contribute something that doesn't need too much knowledge
19:40 Auzon OK. So I'll send mail to p6c (and maybe p6l too?)
19:40 moritz_ ok, then write that mail ;)
19:41 moritz_ yes, p6l as well
19:41 moritz_ any other questions/suggestions?
19:41 Auzon Nope. Like I said above, as long as people let me know when I do something wrong (especially with reorganization), things should be good.
19:42 moritz_ ok, then let's call it a week, and get back to hacking ;)
19:42 Auzon Excellent.
