10:43 ranguard_ jdv79: regularly was when I ran the script... which was every couple of days
13:12 llfourn joined #perl6-toolchain
13:46 jdv79 ranguard_: nice
13:46 jdv79 tony-o_: huh?

14:43 jdv79 ugexe: does zef handle multiple auths well yet?
14:48 jdv79 it appears to not yet
15:14 llfourn joined #perl6-toolchain
15:16 ugexe jdv79: it should
15:18 ugexe jdv79: how can I reproduce? (re: it appears to not yet)
15:30 jdv79 it looks like :strict blocks a "choosing"
15:30 jdv79 i haven't gotten that far yet to have a real case:)
15:31 jdv79 for instance if I have Foo:auth<asdf> and Foo:auth<jkl;> - i could choose one?
15:31 jdv79 well, s/;// probably
15:32 ugexe I believe so, yes
15:32 jdv79 and how is the disambiguation done?
15:32 jdv79 as in if both of those exist and i ask for Foo:auth<*>
15:33 jdv79 or just Foo - same thing, right?
15:33 jdv79 i didn't see that in the test cases
15:35 llfourn joined #perl6-toolchain
15:36 ugexe so what you are talking about is the concept of recommendation manager (you probably know this). zef tries to mimick what CUR does for the most part, but I've been thinking that this recommendation engine could be split out of CUR so it can be changed. then it would also be trivial for a package manager (zef) to resolve things the same way CUR will
15:37 ugexe with Foo:auth<*> I believe it will grab whichever one has the higher version
15:39 ugexe and yeah there probably isn't a test for auth specifically, but there is for version
15:40 ugexe ah no *explicit* test on version

15:52 jdv79 yes, this is exactly what i'm investigating
15:52 jdv79 for cpan reasons
15:52 jdv79 er, more metacpan but pretty sure it might be more widespread
15:53 ugexe well the auth for everything right now is still whatever it is for the original dist
15:54 jdv79 what do you mean by original dist?
15:56 ugexe so zef is in the ecosystem as zef:auth<github:ugexe> - if I then add zef to cpan the auth would still be the same. so if i `zef install zef:auth<github:ugexe>` it might fetch it from cpan or it might fetch it from the ecosystem
15:58 jdv79 oh, that.  ok.
