03:35 ugexe i'll note zef is able to install modules without being installed itself, allowing faster integration testing results

07:31 nine jdv79: note that I did _not_ say that having multiple versions installed is a broken idea. That people think, they need to do that is broken. You can up- and downgrade rakudo easily and just keep on using your installed modules. And you can have multiple versions of modules installed.
07:31 nine There's just no need for a normal user to have multiple installations in parallel.
07:37 FROGGS nine: multiple installations of rakudo?
07:46 nine FROGGS: yes
07:47 FROGGS well, testers and devs tend to do that
07:47 nine Having multiple versions of modules is obviously quite useful :)
07:47 FROGGS aye :o)
07:47 jdv79 i'm not sure i get that but ok
07:47 nine That's why I said "normal users" :)
07:47 nine jdv79: get what?
07:52 jdv79 your whole response i think.  are you saying recompiling rakudo to diff versions on the fly is the way to go.
07:52 jdv79 ?
07:52 jdv79 instead of having multiple discrete installs for each version like 'brew is supposed to do?
07:54 nine jdv79: yes, because, what's the advantage of having multiple discrete installs that offsets the disadvantage of having to install all your modules again and again?
07:56 jdv79 switching between them in seconds i guess
07:56 jdv79 maybe:)
07:57 jdv79 its 3am here though so g'nite
07:57 nine But why would a normal user want to do that? We strife for backwards compatibility, so upgrades should be safe.
07:57 nine Good night!
