18:44 masak joined #perl6-soc
18:54 moritz_ joined #perl6-soc
19:00 masak o/
19:00 moritz_ \o
19:02 masak the Twittersphere is shocked and deeply sad over _why's disappearance. I'm following the reaction live. it's mesmerizing.
19:02 masak (and yes, I'm kinda sad too. I hope the guy's alright.)
19:03 masak but now, #perl6-soc meeting.
19:03 masak do we have a literal here?
19:05 moritz_ or an identifier maybe? ;-)
19:07 masak pending literal's appearance, I'm going to take a look at grok.
19:07 * moritz_ takes a look at the release announcement
19:10 masak ah. seems what literal++ did was to take my + examples and use them as test data.
19:10 masak I think that's a really good idea.
19:12 masak at bottom, u4x doesn't need to be more complicated than a lot of =head3 sections.
19:22 literal oh, hi
19:22 masak o/
19:23 literal masak: as I mentioned in a blog post, the "perl table index" on the perlfoundation wiki could be used as u4x data
19:23 masak literal: I've been thinking along the same lines, actually.
19:24 literal cool
19:24 masak literal: not sure the structure will be exactly the same, but those guys sure did a good job hunting and gathering.
19:24 literal heh, yeah
19:26 masak also, and perhaps not least, this could be the key to making documentation-writing a bit more motivating.
19:27 masak let's say someone created a generated page on feather which showed the completion status of u4x, preferably using colors.
19:28 masak 'white' - unwritten, 'grey' - started, 'blue' - completed, 'green' - reviewed, 'gold' - awesome!
19:28 literal and it would get data from the Synopses Pods on which things things need to be documented?
19:29 masak well, as you said, perhaps we should seed the index with the 'perl table index' on the pf wiki.
19:30 masak and perhaps, if it makes sense, S29 and S32.
19:31 masak should I try to extract some index from the pf wiki into u4x in the Pugs repo?
19:32 literal that could be useful
19:33 masak from what I see in grok, it contains a good start for actually hosting something like that.
19:39 masak literal: how have the last-minute things from last week proceeded?
19:40 masak 1) Adapt PerlJam's regex tutorial into a 'perlretut', 2) get some u4x terms into grok, 3) release a draft of a 'perlootut' document, 4) work more with the Padre team on integrating grok.
19:41 literal they went alright, though I think the only way I helped Padre (well, Padre-Plugin-Perl6, really) was by eliminating grok test failures
19:42 masak that's something, at least.
19:42 literal but azawawi usually pokes me when something goes wrong :)
19:42 masak I'm glad the things went alright.
19:49 masak literal: thanks for implementing grok for your GSoC project! it's been fun to watch. I'll do my best to give it the attention it deserves, mainly by filling u4x with worthwhile documentation.
19:50 moritz_ literal++
19:50 moritz_ and masak++ for mentoring
19:50 masak zarah: karma literal
19:50 zarah literal has a karma of 5
19:50 masak literal++
19:50 literal my pleasure
19:50 moritz_ literal++
19:50 literal I'm not done yet, though :)
19:50 moritz_ # a gsoc project deserves more karma ;-)
19:50 masak literal: and that's even better. :)
19:50 masak literal: I'm not done either. :)
20:00 masak today's meeting, however, might very well be over.
20:00 masak I'm due for an evening walk. and we seem to have run out of steam anyway.
20:05 literal alright
20:05 masak o/
20:05 moritz_ o|
20:14 masak left #perl6-soc
