20:05 MadcapJake nine: so it's possible that I could create a CompUnit::Repository that would pre-empt any of the other repos, right?
20:08 MadcapJake I'm looking to create a module manager that uses IPFS & gx. gx handles the downloading and installing (via IPFS), I would just need to make a Repository that can traverse the modules.  Would I need to handle precomp as well?
20:10 MadcapJake Unfortunately, the only way I can see that working (without user intervention) is by implementing my own script/expression runner (gx-perl6) and unshifting my custom Repo into $*REPO.
20:11 MadcapJake but that's not too terrible because users would need gx-perl6 anyways to be able to install/update modules
20:15 nine MadcapJake: yes, that's entirely possible
20:15 nine MadcapJake: you have had a look at my module management slides?
20:16 MadcapJake nine: yeah I'm digesting that right now
20:16 MadcapJake is this doc still pretty up-to-date too? https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/nom/docs/module_management.md
20:17 nine yes
