08:37 maettu joined #perl6book
08:38 maettu I (finally successfully) converted the book into pdf. I could do it regularly if you wanted me to. It is here: http://puffin.ch/perl/6/
10:46 moritz_ maettu: that would be very nice
10:46 moritz_ maettu++
11:33 maettu left #perl6book
13:50 PerlJam joined #perl6book
16:11 maettu joined #perl6book
16:14 maettu moritz_: Where would you like to publish it? On my site (+ a link to from github)?
16:16 moritz_ maettu: whatever you prefer. I can give you commit access to the github project, so you can upload the snapshots to the download section, or you can just keep it on your site
16:17 moritz_ (and a link in the README)
16:17 maettu i don't care
16:17 maettu how often should it be converted into pdf?
16:19 moritz_ given our current level of activity, I'd say once a week is enough
16:19 maettu ok, I'll do that
16:19 maettu would you like to have the date in the file name?
16:20 moritz_ if you keep the older versions available: yes
16:20 maettu How many versions would you like to keep?
16:20 moritz_ on second thought I don't think anybody will bother to read the older versions :-)
16:21 moritz_ and if somebody does want older versions, there's always version control
16:21 maettu sure
16:21 moritz_ so I officially don't care :-)
16:22 maettu but with date somebody could easily check how old his version is and compare this to the new date..
16:22 moritz_ correcty
16:22 moritz_ s/y//
16:22 maettu s/:-(/:-)/
16:23 moritz_ btw currently when I build the book I get
16:23 moritz_ kpathsea: Invalid fontname `Luxi Mono', contains ' '
16:23 moritz_ and then only 6 pages of output
16:24 moritz_ but no complaints for the font names that contain spaces... weird
16:25 moritz_ huh, ttf-xfree86-nonfree is missing
16:36 moritz_ ah, installing that font makes the error go away
16:36 moritz_ less than awesome error mesasge if you ask me :/
17:09 maettu moritz_: if you just link to my site http://puffin.ch/perl/6/ all versions I keep available can be accessed, no matter which actual name etc.
17:09 moritz_ maettu: OK
