10:08 stmuk_ is there any way via META6.json of specifying a dependency on a particular rakudo version rather than perl 6 lang version?
10:09 stmuk_ for example cro needs equal to or better than 2017.08 and DBIish is broken on 2017.01
10:42 stmuk_ cro SSL I mean
10:50 nine stmuk_: no, that's the major reason why we want to release 6.d
11:01 llfourn joined #perl6-toolchain
11:04 stmuk_ not sure that will help since most of the breaking changes recently probably were 6.c
11:04 stmuk_ or at least people relying on unspec'd behaviour
11:05 stmuk_ I suppose it could be handled in tests just dying (or warning) based on rakudo version

18:52 [Coke] build a new rakudo for testing something. needs a module. install zef for this newly built rakudo. try to use module. can't. try to install module: already installed.

19:33 mst [Coke]: \o/ software
19:36 ugexe so zef is getting launched by a different perl6 than what you are using to try and `use` the module with
19:37 ugexe you might see if `zef --help` and `perl6 -MZef::CLI -e '' --help` show the same configuration file path
19:50 * leont is busy inventing a test framework for perl6, because Test.pm is rather croaking under a complete lack of architecture
20:35 leont I think I got the main architecture right, now I just need to invent a non-awkward API and make things thread-safe. What can possibly go wrong…
20:35 leont (subtests and threads are a terrible combination, that much is certain)
23:39 [Coke] ah. zef's wrapper is "the perl6 in the env" not "the perl6 used to install zef." That'd do it.
23:39 [Coke] bad expectation on my part.
