10:36 tbrowder i believe installation of an ecosystem module needs to automaticall result in docs available to the user. is there any disagreement with that?
10:37 lizmat not from me :-)

17:35 stmuk tbrowder: Its not a technical issue. What you describe would happen if people wrote pod for perl6. The problem is they don't.
17:35 stmuk they mostly just write a README.md
17:37 stmuk actually I mean embedded pod since I don't think S22 supports external .pod6 files

20:04 ugexe it would be nice if github ever parses pod6 so we can have README.pod6 show up like README.pod/README.md on github
20:20 mst maybe figure out what hilighter they're using, contribute perl6 support?

23:34 tbrowder I just found out  about p6doc as an installable module. IMHO, it needs to be part of any package for a new installation of rakudo.  The user shouldn't have to install anything else to be able to read what Perl 6 pod is available.  Also, p6doc needs to find ALL Perl 6 pod in a distribution.
