15:31 ugexe im guessing it ended up being a network hiccup?
15:46 ugexe heh, can't declare a lib that has a `,` in the path. i wonder if we should follow perl 5 and use `:` since it seems slightly less likely to be used

16:46 tbrowder imho, commas in modern paths are to be shunned (shades of rcs haunting us)
16:52 leont In Perl5 the path separator is : on Unix and VMS, and ; on Windows, it follows the PATH environmental variable.

18:20 ugexe users dont get to choose their home directory
18:21 ugexe you can shun it, but its not ideal to just say "well change your HOME path / user"
18:26 leont ugexe: I'm merging the new strict logic in TAP one of these days, but have disabled it on < 2017.09.

18:27 leont It shouldn't cause issues in zef, but if someone starts complaining it's probably my fault

19:42 tbrowder ugexe: not trying to be smart, just can’t think of commas in a path except PERL6LIB (which i thought was different), rcs files, and somewhat common in college stdent use on SUNOS
19:44 tbrowder (file names, not as dir separators)
19:44 ugexe im talking about directories with a comma
19:48 tbrowder weird, where do you see those?
